Unexpected EOF during Docker Compose up


I’m going through the steps to install Rocketchat using the Docker command line - not too much experience with this.

When I get to the final step:
docker compose -f docker-compose.yml -f traefik.yml up -d

unexpected EOF

Once it returns to command line I can run “docker ps -l” and nothing is running.
