Using the Docker installation instructions, it gets confusing about
halfway down; https://hub.docker.com/r/fossology/fossology

Essentially there are two ways to install FOSSology using containers;

1. Single Docker container
2. Multiple containers via Docker compose

The multiple container method is closer to what most people expect
since containers are often used with 'microservices' and separated.

I've tried to adjust the README to reflect this situation and attempted
to clarify, it's in a PR here:

Lastly, I think it might be wise to deprecate the single container
install solution as it doesn't provide for data persistence. Having had
to reboot my container a couple of times for configuration and testing,
I've lost data which is kinda bad UX. In addition, the Docker compose
solution feels closer to best practices, works well, and persists data
properly. Also, having one solution for containers will likely be less
for the project to maintain.
