Docker Compose is a tool, that is used to run multi-container Docker applications, with Compose you use a YAML file to configure applications run each container will run a standalone services. You can create and start all the service from the docker-compose.yml file with a single command  "docker-compose up -d".

Installing Docker Compose on Linux:

There are three steps to installing the Docker Compose on your Linux instance, the steps are below,

First find the latest version from the GitHub portal:, found the latest verion 1.29.2 when post this page,

Second download binary file with latest version from the GitHub using CURL command on your Terminal,

$ sudo curl -L "$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

third one is, once the downloaded the docker-compose binary file, we need to set the execute permissions for that compose binary file by chmod command,

$ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

Finally, will verify the installation by checking the docker-compose version, the command is

$ sudo docker-compose --version

Will see the version details looks like below output,

docker-compose version 1.29.2, build 5becea4c

$ sudo docker-compose up --help

You will see the output looks like below,

Builds, (re)creates, starts, and attaches to containers for a service.

Unless they are already running, this command also starts any linked services.

The `docker-compose up` command aggregates the output of each container. When
the command exits, all containers are stopped. Running `docker-compose up -d`
starts the containers in the background and leaves them running.

If there are existing containers for a service, and the service's configuration
or image was changed after the container's creation, `docker-compose up` picks
up the changes by stopping and recreating the containers (preserving mounted
volumes). To prevent Compose from picking up changes, use the `--no-recreate`

If you want to force Compose to stop and recreate all containers, use the
`--force-recreate` flag.

Usage: up [options] [--scale SERVICE=NUM...] [--] [SERVICE...]

    -d, --detach               Detached mode: Run containers in the background,
                               print new container names. Incompatible with
    --no-color                 Produce monochrome output.
    --quiet-pull               Pull without printing progress information
    --no-deps                  Don't start linked services.
    --force-recreate           Recreate containers even if their configuration
                               and image haven't changed.
    --always-recreate-deps     Recreate dependent containers.
                               Incompatible with --no-recreate.
    --no-recreate              If containers already exist, don't recreate
                               them. Incompatible with --force-recreate and -V.
    --no-build                 Don't build an image, even if it's missing.
    --no-start                 Don't start the services after creating them.
    --build                    Build images before starting containers.
    --abort-on-container-exit  Stops all containers if any container was
                               stopped. Incompatible with -d.
    --attach-dependencies      Attach to dependent containers.
    -t, --timeout TIMEOUT      Use this timeout in seconds for container
                               shutdown when attached or when containers are
                               already running. (default: 10)
    -V, --renew-anon-volumes   Recreate anonymous volumes instead of retrieving
                               data from the previous containers.
    --remove-orphans           Remove containers for services not defined
                               in the Compose file.
    --exit-code-from SERVICE   Return the exit code of the selected service
                               container. Implies --abort-on-container-exit.
    --scale SERVICE=NUM        Scale SERVICE to NUM instances. Overrides the
                               `scale` setting in the Compose file if present.
    --no-log-prefix            Don't print prefix in logs.
