Hi everyone, might overthink something but when I pulled the docker image how do I start the server? This is what I get as a response: FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'docker-compose': 'docker-compose'. Cheers, Marek

Hey @Marek Nguyen, This guide in the documentation is a great place to get started when deploying Prefect Server. You'll need
to be installed, then you can use the CLI to start up Server on your local machine with
prefect server start
. You should also check out this

video walkthrough

with Laura, a livestream from last month, as she starts up Server.

Hi @Kyle Moon-Wright, thanks for your response. Yeah I read that guide but what I am unsure about is: I pulled this image from Docker but it seems like you need docker and docker-compose inside this container to run prefect am I right? And if I’m right, whats the point in using this Docker image?
