Install Traefik

You can install Traefik with the following flavors:

Use the Official Docker Image

Choose one of the official Docker images and run it with the sample configuration file:

docker run -d -p 8080:8080 -p 80:80 \
    -v $PWD/traefik.toml:/etc/traefik/traefik.toml traefik:v2.0

For more details, go to the Docker provider documentation

Tip

  • Prefer a fixed version than the latest that could be an unexpected version. ex: traefik:v2.0.0
  • Docker images are based from the Alpine Linux Official image.
  • All the orchestrator using docker images could fetch the official Traefik docker image.
