docker compose up
|Create and start containers
docker compose up [OPTIONS] [SERVICE...]
Builds, (re)creates, starts, and attaches to containers for a service.
Unless they are already running, this command also starts any linked services.
docker compose up command aggregates the output of each container (like
docker compose logs --follow does).
One can optionally select a subset of services to attach to using
--attach flag, or exclude some services using
--no-attach to prevent output to be flooded by some verbose services.
When the command exits, all containers are stopped. Running
docker compose up --detach starts the containers in the
background and leaves them running.
If there are existing containers for a service, and the service’s configuration or image was changed after the
docker compose up picks up the changes by stopping and recreating the containers
(preserving mounted volumes). To prevent Compose from picking up changes, use the
