Note that this tutorial is only made if you decided to deploy PM2 Enterprise On-Premise. If you use the Cloud based one you can just use it straight from


Install Docker & Docker compose (minimum required version is 1.19.0) in your host machine:

$ sudo wget -qO- | sh
$ sudo curl -L`uname -s`-`uname -m` -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
$ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

Then make sure you have logged-in on the hub to be able to pull the private images:

$ docker login

Steps to Install

  1. Get the docker-compose.yml file corresponding to your version:
$ wget

Once you have configured the docker-compose.yml file start it:

$ docker-compose up -d

Now connect to:

$ google-chrome http://server-ip/wizard

Set your License Key and configuration and youre done

Update Procedure

Just run docker-compose up again and it will pull the latest backend image:

$ docker-compose pull km-api km-front
$ docker-compose restart km-api km-front

A downtime of around 30 seconds maximum will happen.

  • Do I loose the ES/Mongo data on restart? No, by default, there are local volumes bound to the

  • I want to use specific version of mongodb/redis/elasticsearch, is this possible ? No, we currently support mongodb up to 3.4, redis 2/3/4 and elasticsearch 5.5.
