Docker Compose Config

Our first step is to create the docker-compose YAML file and copy it to our docker host in a central folder where you store all your docker-compose directories. Copy the YAML code below:

version: "2"
    image: mautic/mautic
    container_name: mautic-web
    restart: always
      - /docker/mautic/data:/var/www/html
      - mysql
      - "80:80"
      MAUTIC_DB_HOST: mysql
      MAUTIC_DB_USER: mautic
      MAUTIC_DB_PASSWORD: mauticdbpass

    image: mysql:5.6
    container_name: mautic-db
    restart: always
      - /docker/mautic/mysql:/var/lib/mysql
      MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD: mysqlrootpassword
      MYSQL_DATABASE: mautic
      MYSQL_USER: mautic
      MYSQL_PASSWORD: mauticdbpass

Once the code has been copied navigate to the directory with the terminal CLI and run the following command to deploy the docker containers and set up the application stack:

docker-compose up -d

If successfully deployed you can run docker ps to see if the Mautic containers are running and then open your web browser and navigate to the IP address of the docker host and port number that you bound to the web application ie if configured over port 80 or if configured on another port.

Setup Mautic Web Application

Once you open the web application through the browser, you must set up your Mautic platform. You will get to the page like in the example below and you can follow the prompts and set up your newsletter platform from campaigns and SMTP providers etc.
