In this Docker compose a tutorial post, we are discussing on Docker Compose up command, Docker Compose down command, Docker Compose start command and Docker Compose stop command.

Docker Compose Up, Docker Compose Down, Docker Compose Start, and Docker Compose Stop

1. What is Docker Compose Stop Command?

Like its name, the Docker Compose stop command stops all services. Docker Compose stop command does NOT remove any containers but it stops the services associated with a Docker Compose configuration.

2. What is Docker Compose Up command?

Docker Compose up command builds, (re)creates, starts, and attaches to containers for a service.

3. What is Docker Compose start command?

Docker Compose start command will start any stopped services. If you have stopped any services with the docker-compose stop command then you can use this start command to start those services.

4. What is Docker Compose down command?

Docker-compose down command removes any containers and internal networks associated with the services and stops all services associated with a Docker Compose configuration.

Docker Compose Up With Example

Usage:

 docker-compose up [options] [--scale SERVICE=NUM...] [SERVICE...] 

Docker-compose up command options:

-d, --detach                  Detached mode: Run containers in the background,
                               print new container names. Incompatible with
                               --abort-on-container-exit.
    --no-color                 Produce monochrome output.
    --quiet-pull               Pull without printing progress information
    --no-deps                  Don't start linked services.
    --force-recreate           Recreate containers even if their configuration
                               and image haven't changed.
    --always-recreate-deps     Recreate dependent containers.
                               Incompatible with --no-recreate.
    --no-recreate              If containers already exist, don't recreate
                               them. Incompatible with --force-recreate and 
                               --renew-anon-volumes.
    --no-build                 Don't build an image, even if it's missing.
    --no-start                 Don't start the services after creating them.
    --build                    Build images before starting containers.
    --abort-on-container-exit  Stops all containers if any container was
                               stopped. Incompatible with --detach.
    --attach-dependencies      Attach to dependent containers.
    -t, --timeout TIMEOUT      Use this timeout in seconds for container
                               shutdown when attached or when containers are
                               already running. (default: 10)
    -V, --renew-anon-volumes   Recreate anonymous volumes instead of retrieving
                               data from the previous containers.
    --remove-orphans           Remove containers for services not defined
                               in the Compose file.
    --exit-code-from SERVICE   Return the exit code of the selected service
                               container. Implies --abort-on-container-exit.
    --scale SERVICE=NUM        Scale SERVICE to NUM instances. Overrides the
                               `scale` setting in the Compose file if present.

Docker Compose Down With Example

Docker compose down command stops containers and removes containers, networks, volumes, and images created by Docker compose up command.

Usage:

docker-compose down [options]

Docker compose down command options:

--rmi type              Remove images. Type must be one of:
                              'all': Remove all images used by any service.
                              'local': Remove only images that don't have a
                              custom tag set by the `image` field.
    -v, --volumes           Remove named volumes declared in the `volumes`
                            section of the Compose file and anonymous volumes
                            attached to containers.
    --remove-orphans        Remove containers for services not defined in the
                            Compose file
    -t, --timeout TIMEOUT   Specify a shutdown timeout in seconds.
                            (default: 10)

Docker Compose Start With Example

It starts existing containers for a service.

Usage:

docker-compose start [SERVICE...]

Docker Compose Stop With Example

Docker compose stop command option:
