##A container for Laravel
This container has the basic extensions and configuration to run a laravel application. Base on the php official containers I create my own ones.
The latest containers also includes support for memcached. Composer and node js are installed.
docker pull adalessa/php-apache-laravel
To run a single container you only need to run
docker run --name myApp -p 8080:80 -v "$PWD":/var/www/html adalessa/laravel-container
This will start a new container and it will expose the port 8080 in your local machine.
If you already have your laravel application you only need to run this command from the root directory of your application
You can create an application from scratch with this container, since composer it is installed in the container you can run
docker exec myApp composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel .
This will create all the application for you.
if you already have your application you can only run
docker exec myApp composer install
If you are using laravel elixir or gulp or anything with node js you can install your dependencies
docker exec myApp npm install
If your application is bigger and you need may want to use docker-composer to have all your containers related.
web: image: adalessa/laravel-container ports: - "5000:80" volumes: - ./code:/var/www/html links: - mysql mysql: image: mysql:5.6 env_file: mysql.env ports: - "4306:3306"
Also have this mysql.env file that will container the root password for your database
Having this link you only need to set as your mysql server in the config as "mysql", docker composer will automatically generate the link and the name resolution
To run the command from the container you can use docker-composer instead of docker, this will give you an easy to execute code in the container.
docker-composer exec web composer install
To deploy your application you may want to create your own container with your application in it instead of link the code from yout machine
FROM adalessa/laravel-container COPY ./code /var/www/html RUN composer install RUN npm install RUN npm run prod RUN chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html
To build your container you may run
docker build -t my-awsome-app .
