  Supported Linux distribution

1. Check pre-requisites

  1. By default, Apache listens on 0.0.0.0:80 and 0.0.0.0:443. This will prevent Docksal reverse proxy from running properly. You can resolve it an any of the following ways:
    • Reconfigure Apache to listen on different host (e.g., 127.0.0.1:80 and 127.0.0.1:443).
    • Reconfigure Apache to listen on different ports (e.g., 8080 and 4433)
    • Stop and disable Apache
  2. Software. Check that you have:
    • curl
    • sudo

2. Install Docksal

Open Terminal app and run:bash <(curl -fsSL https://get.docksal.io)

  Other Linux distributions

Compatibility

If you cannot find your distribution, it does not mean it is not supported! Less known Debian or Fedora derivatives are most likely supported.

Docker on Linux is installed using the official get.docker.com script. If your distribution is not in the list above, but get.docker.com supports it, then it is supported.

Incompatible distributions

In case your distribution in not compatible with get.docker.com, you need to install the latest stable Docker for you distribution first, and then follow the steps for compatible distributions.
