Today we’re going to see how to install Docker and Docker Compose on Oracle Linux.

The first thing we’re going to do is update the system:

sudo yum check-update

Then we add the Docker repository:

dnf config-manager --add-repo=

Now we install Docker:

dnf install docker-ce -y

And it will start installing:

Once installed, we need to enable Docker to run on system restart:

sudo systemctl start docker
sudo systemctl enable docker

And now we can run Docker:

docker run hello-world

Docker Compose is installed along with Docker, to run it we’ll use:

sudo docker compose version

If we need to run Docker without root:

We create the docker group:

 sudo groupadd docker

We add the user to the docker group:

 sudo usermod -aG docker $USER

We activate the group changes:

 newgrp docker

Now we can run commands without sudo:

 docker run hello-world

If we need to remove Docker or Docker Compose:

  • First, stop Docker
systemctl stop docker

Remove Docker:

dnf remove docker-ce -y

And remove Docker Compose

rm -rf /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
