    • cd /home/docker1/plex change in that directory
    • nano docker-compose.yml create an empty file and start the editor
    • copy the content of the Source Code box below in the editor, change according your setup and save the file with Ctrl+X and y; name must be "docker-compose.yml
    • to copy the content of the Source Code box use the small icon in the top right corner of the box ("Copy Contents")


    • after you saved the file, run docker-compose up -d in the directory where the docker-compose.yml file is located; this will download the needed image and start the container; the correct image for your architecture (amd64, arm, etc.) should be pulled
