  2. Find your Agent key in the Agents tab in your Cabinet.

  3. Run the following command to install the WildcoreDMS.

The installation process may take some time (usually about 10-15 minutes)

If the installation was successful, the following message will be displayed:

    WildcoreDMS (version x.xx.x) success installed!
    Now, you can use wildcoreDMS by URL: http://<service ip|domain>:8088
    Default login/password - admin/admin

    You can change some parameters in /opt/wildcore-dms/.env file, as listen ports for example

After installation, you can navigate to the Web Panel.


The panel is available at http://localhost:8088 by default.

You will be greeted by the WildcoreDMS login screen.


The default login credentials are:

  • Username: admin
  • Password: admin

Frequent installation problems

docker-compose-plugin not installed

Usually the error looks like this:


docker-compose must be installed on your system specifically as a plugin for Docker, rather than as a standalone utility.


  1. Install the docker-compose-plugin package for your operating system (refer to the installation instructions in the official Docker documentation.
  2. Verify its functionality by running the command docker compose version, which should return the plugin version.
  3. Proceed with the WildcoreDMS installation by executing sudo wca-tool update.

Network errors may manifest as Connection refused,Connection timeout, or Forbidden entries in the logs.


  1. Examine the logs to pinpoint the problematic connection attempt.
  2. Confirm the existence of the target address on the server (for HTTP, try the same curl).
  3. If the response is valid, investigate your Docker setup.

Refer to the official Docker documentation for detailed instructions. Ensure compatibility with your OS version as per the documentation or that no older versions are present.

Once the issue is resolved, you can proceed by executing the wca-tool update command.
