The latest release of the RHEL 8 / CentOS 8. Red Hat has built its own tools,
podman, which aim to be compatible with existing docker images and work without relying on a daemon, allowing the creation of containers as normal users, without the need of special permissions (with some limitations: e.g. at the moment of writing, it’s still not possible to map host ports to the container without privileges).
Some specific tools, however, are still missing: an equivalent of
docker-compose, for example does not exists yet. In this tutorial we will see how to install and run the original Docker CE on Rhel8 by using the official Docker repository for CentOS7.
In this tutorial you will learn:
- How to enable the docker-ce repository on RHEL 8 / CentOS 8
- How to install docker and docker-compose on RHEL 8 / CentOS 8
