Otherwise, if you do not have Git installed on your machine, download the zipped file from the main page of the repository by clicking “Code” and select “Download zip file”.
4. Customize the WA container installation parameters as required by modifying them in your local docker-compose.yml file.

6. To start the WA containers, from the directory where the docker-compose.yml file has been cloned, run the following command:
docker-compose up –d
And that’s it! Now go have a coffee while the WA containers get up and running, and by the time you’re done, they’ll be ready to use …………
