Full Description


A Docker image based on Debian Jessie, serving PHP 5.6 running as Apache Module. Useful for Web developers in need for a fixed PHP version. In addition, the error_reporting setting in php.ini is configurable per container via environment variable.


  • latest: Debian 8 (Jessie), Apache 2.4, PHP 5.6.x with support for setting error_reporting


$ docker run -d -P bylexus/apache-php56

With all the options:

$ docker run -d -p 8080:80 \
    -v /home/user/webroot:/var/www \
  • -v [local path]:/var/www maps the container's webroot to a local path
  • -p [local port]:80 maps a local port to the container's HTTP port 80
  • -e PHP_ERROR_REPORTING=[php error_reporting settings] sets the value of error_reporting in the php.ini files.

Access apache logs

Apache is configured to log both access and error log to STDOUT. So you can simply use docker logs to get the log output:

docker logs -f container-id
