# CentOS 8, Rocky Linux 8, AlmaLinux 8

In this guide we will install Pterodactyl's Wings v1.X β€” including all of it's dependencies β€” and configure it to use a SSL connection.


This guide is based off the official installation documentation but is tailored specifically for Enterprise Linux 8.

# Install Requirements

We will first begin by installing all of the Wings' required dependencies.

# Docker

## Install yum tools
dnf install -y dnf-utils device-mapper-persistent-data lvm2

## Add the docker repo
dnf config-manager --add-repo=

## Install docker
dnf install -y docker-ce --nobest

## Enable docker service
systemctl enable docker
systemctl start docker

# FirewallD Changes

firewall-cmd --add-port 8080/tcp --permanent
firewall-cmd --add-port 2022/tcp --permanent
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=trusted --change-interface=pterodactyl0
firewall-cmd --zone=trusted --add-masquerade --permanent
firewall-cmd --reload

# Installing Wings

Great, now all of the dependencies and firewall rules have been dealt with. From here follow the official Wings installation documentation.


If you have SELinux enforcement enabled and you are getting AVC denials from your containers, try relocating your Wings data directory from /var/lib/pterodactyl to /var/srv/containers/pterodactyl. That is where the targeted policy expects Docker to read and write data from.
