What is Docker and Docker Compose
Docker is a system that enables you to create packages that contain everything you need to run an application. These packages, called containers, are similar to virtual machines but are more lightweight and standalone and contain everything needed to run an application: code, libraries, components, settings, etc. Containers allow you to quickly run applications without having to install all their requirements.
Docker encourages the creation of containers where each container does one thing only. So, what happens if you need to run an application that has many executable components? You use several containers. For example, in its simplest form, Team Password Manager requires two executable components: a web server (Apache) and a database (MySQL). Thus, to create a Team Password Manager installation with Docker you create and run two containers: one with Apache (with PHP, Ioncube and all the settings) and another one with MySQL. Docker Compose is an application that lets you easily manage multi-container applications like this one.
Team Password Manager Docker image
Docker containers are created from Docker images. You have images for all sorts of applications: operating systems (eg. Ubuntu), databases (eg. MySQL), CMSs (eg. Wordpress), and so on.
Now, you also have a Docker image for Team Password Manager. With this image you'll be able to quickly create a container to run Team Password Manager in much less time that it takes to install all the components required, including Team Password Manager itself.

Install Docker and Docker Compose first
To be able to create a Team Password Manager Docker installation, Docker and Docker Compose must be installed on your server.
The Docker website provides detailed instructions to get and install Docker and Docker Compose on your system, here you have the appropriate links:
Docker installation: https://docs.docker.com/get-docker/
Docker Compose installation: https://docs.docker.com/compose/install/
