This post will be an introduction to deploying web applications on dply.co using Docker containers, please note that the free tier of dply.co is only for 2 hours so you should only use it for trial purposes, of course, you can always pay to make it a production version.
Follow the first post to create an account and install Docker.
In the terminal window, we’ll need to install Docker compose using the following command;
sudo curl -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose -L “https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.11.2/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)”
You’ll then need to apply executable permissions for the binaries using the following command;
chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
In this step, we shall create the Wekan compose file from which we’re going to start the Wekan container, use the following command to achieve that;
Copy and paste the following command in the newly created file and then close it.
Now, we need to start running the container using the following command;
After the installation process is complete, you can log to your container from the browser using your IP aggress that you can get from your Dply dashboard e.g. (http://machine_IP).
Now, you’ll be directed to Wekan installation window, create your admin username and password, then hit the “Finish Setup” tab at the bottom of the page.
Congratulations, you’ve successfully installed a Wekan container on Dply, we’re going to cover more Docker container installation for many more web applications in the coming posts.
