How does Docker Compose work with multiple .yml files?

Experience Level: Senior
Tags: Docker Compose


You can combine a configuration from multiple files like this:

docker compose -f file1.yml -f file2.yml -f file3.yml up

When you do this, Docker Compose processes files from the first one to the last one, in the order as they are defined. If the file defined later contains the same property as a file defined earlier, the property values are overridden.
