How do I go from development docker-compose yml to deployed docker-compose yml in AWS

+4 votes

These are my docker-compose.yml commands:

version: '3'
            context: ../../
            dockerfile: ./packages/website/Dockerfile
        command: yarn serve
            PORT: 3000
            NODE_ENV: production
        restart: always
            context: ./
            dockerfile: ./nginx/Dockerfile
        command: nginx -c /etc/nginx/nginx.conf -g "daemon off;"
            - server
            - "80:80"
        restart: always

It works here locally but now I want to deploy this to t2.micro or some other paid services but I am not really sure how to do it.

My plan is to create a separate docker-compose.yml file which refers to the images rather than the physical dockerfile(s)
Please just drop in an answer to aware me about this.
Thanks in Advance!

It can work if you try to put the entire directory into the cloud while keeping the entire directory structure.

If you just want to upload the docker-compose.yml file into the cloud without anything else, you'd need to modify it by removing the building field and adding an image: xxx field.

Now the question comes up is that "how can I refer to an image in my docker-compose.yml file`.

You can achieve it in two ways:

  1. Build the image and put it in some container registry, it can be DockerHub, or a private one and refer to it with registry-url/image-name:image-tag. In case you're using DockerHub, you can ignore the registry-url/ part.
  2. Build the image and scp to the cloud and refer to it with image-name:image-tag.
