Install Fleio with Docker¶
Docker deployment of Fleio is now the recommended method to install Fleio.
2021.05.1 was the last release to include deb and rpm system packages.
Linux distributions and versions supported by Fleio docker deployment:
Fleio docker installation script should work on any Linux that has bash, runs systemd and is supported by docker and docker-compose, but we’re actively testing the above distros. We recommend you use one of the supported Linux flavors.
It is recommended to install Fleio on a clean, newly deployed machine that is not running other services. This avoids
possible conflicts (e.g. the
fleio user created automatically must have UID 625 and the
fleio group GID 625).
Update all system packages before proceeding (e.g.
apt update && apt upgrade or
You also need
sudo installed. The
bash-completion package is recommended to take
fleio commands autocompletion, but not required.
You will be asked the license ID (a 16 characters string, e.g. yupn5yilio3qiquw) and the license key (e.g. WERPWM24HV7PUADHXYBJOIL2LMJVCYYCXORA2CH0EIX===) during the installation process. You will receive the licensing details after purchasing a license. Note that for every purchased license you are also entitled to an additional license for a non-production environment (staging or development).
Install Fleio in one step¶
To install Fleio just run the following command:
curl -s -o install https://fleio.com/install && sudo bash install
install script without any parameters installs the latest stable version.
You can specify the version number, e.g.
install --include-beta (only working with versions post 2021.01.0) to consider the beta versions when
determining “latest”. This still installs a stable version, if a stable version is the latest.
If a beta version is the latest, it will install it.
The script installs docker and docker-compose (if not already installed), creates the
fleio local user and group
and creates all the configuration files needed to run Fleio via docker-compose.
You can inspect the docker-compose configuration at
/home/fleio/compose/docker-compose.yml, but DO NOT edit this
file as it may be overwritten on Fleio upgrades.
You can add customizations in file
/home/fleio/compose/docker-compose.override.yml this will not be overwritten by
Fleio and it is already included when you run a
fleio command or
docker-compose command (through directive
COMPOSE_FILE=docker-compose.yml:docker-compose.override.yml from file

Limitations of Fleio deployment with docker¶
The docker deployment of Fleio does not include reseller frontend files in the 2020.10 release. This limitation has no impact if you are not using the Fleio resellers feature.
The only supported method to customize the frontend code is be Example: Change favicon, add custom CSS and Google Analytics.
