Using Docker compose¶
Docker Compose is the recommended way to run Mayan EDMS in production for Docker users. Information and installation instructions for Docker Compose can be found at https://docs.docker.com/compose/
There is an example Docker Compose file available at https://gitlab.com/mayan-edms/mayan-edms/blob/master/docker/docker-compose.yml
The Docker Compose file is provided as a functioning example. It should be reviewed, understood and customized to suit the needs of the target environment. By default, it does not use mounted filesystem folders for any storage volumes.
To deploy a complete production stack using the included Docker Compose file execute:
docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml up -d
This Docker Compose file will provision four containers:
Postgres as the database
Redis as the Celery result storage
RabbitMQ as the Celery broker
Mayan EDMS using the above service containers
To stop the stack use:
docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml stop
The stack will also create four volumes to store the data of each container. These are:
mayan_app - The Mayan EDMS data container, normally called mayan_data when not using Docker compose.
mayan_broker - The broker volume, in this case RabbitMQ.
mayan_db - The database volume, in this case Postgres.
mayan_results - The celery result backend volume, in this case Redis.
