Hostero requires Docker to work. We recommend to install Docker via our link, but you can install it using alternative ways as well (supported versions).

Download the installer and proceed to install Docker as any other software. You can find further instructions on the official Docker website.

Get Docker Community Edition 17.06.2-ce-win27 2017-09-06

2. Install Hostero

Run this command in PowerShell:
docker run -e CATTLE_HOST_LABELS="account=ACCOUNT_ID" --rm --privileged -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v /var/lib/rancher:/var/lib/rancher rancher/agent:v1.2.11 http://europe1.hostero.eu:8080/v1/scripts/039D34CB4B128E9D3686:1546214400000:ToWJiNA8ZNqfP8VIBAspXy7ouI
