Question

How to deploy multiple containers to my droplet automatically?

Let’s say I’ve uploaded multiple images to Container Registry, now I want to deploy them connected into a single network (imagine docker compose), is that possible?

Hi there,

Indeed using docker-compose is one way to go, you would be able to build a single docker-compose file and then run docker-compose up -d to pull up the new images.

Another option would be to use Nginx as described in this tutorial here:

A third option would be to use the DigitalOcean App Platform which automates the whole process for you so that you don’t have to do any server configuration. You will be able to deploy your containers by using images directly from DockerHub:
