# Installing with Docker

Directus is published to both DockerHub (opens new window) and GitHub Packages (opens new window) under directus/directus. To run Directus straight from DockerHub, run:

docker run -p 8055:8055 directus/directus

# Installing Specific Versions

For every version we release, we update/publish three tags. This allows you to use the latest released version, the latest minor (eg v9.1) or a specific version (eg v9.1.2). To run Directus on a specific version, run:

docker run -p 8055:8055 directus/directus:v9
# OR
docker run -p 8055:8055 directus/directus:v9.1
# OR
docker run -p 8055:8055 directus/directus:v9.1.2

# Create admin user using docker

The published Docker image will automatically populate the database, and create a user. To configure the email/password for this first user, pass the following env vars:

ADMIN_EMAIL="admin@example.com"
ADMIN_PASSWORD="d1r3ctu5"
