  • You must have the "centos-extras" repository enabled. 
  • You must have Super-user access ( sudo )
  • You will the need the "yum" package installer
Installation Steps:
Step 0: ( optional )
Uninstall any old versions of docker you may have using the below command:
$ sudo yum remove docker \
                  docker-client \
                  docker-client-latest \
                  docker-common \
                  docker-latest \
                  docker-latest-logrotate \
                  docker-logrotate \
Step 1: 
Allow for the docker package database to be up to date.
$ sudo yum check-update

Step 2:

Install all of the necessary packages:

$ sudo yum install -y yum-utils \
  device-mapper-persistent-data \

Step 3:

Setup a stable repository for docker, this is so that you can later update docker from this repository when needed:

$ sudo yum-config-manager \
    --add-repo \

 Step 4:

Now go ahead an install docker properly using the below command, it will install all the important docker components:

$ sudo yum install docker-ce docker-ce-cli

You may be asked validate the installation by giving you a GPG key, It should look something like this:

You have now successfully installed Docker. The END.
