Short Description
CentOS, lighttpd and PHP
Full Description


This is a Docker image for PHP apps. It allows deployment of source code either by mounting a folder, download at runtime from a ZIP file which can be located on any HTTP server accessible to the running container or by building a new container image using this image as the base.

Creating compatible PHP apps

The directory structure of a PHP app compatible with this container should have a web directory which contains an index.php file. All requests for files that do not exist in the web directory are URL-rewritten to this entry file. Other directories can be used to store files which do not need to be exposed through the webserver, such as classes, dependencies and configuration.

Installed packages

The image is created as an automated build on the Docker Hub. At the time of writing, the latest image contains:

  • CentOS 7
  • lighttpd 1.4.49 with mod_fastcgi and mod_rewrite (installed from EPEL)
  • PHP 7.2.6 with opcache, pecl-apcu, pdo, mysql, xml, mbstring, gd, pecl-redis, soap (installed from Webtatic)

How to run

Mounting external source

docker run -p 80:80 -v /path/to/source:/var/www/app cloudobjects/php-app-base

Deploying application from ZIP file

docker run -p 80:80 -e PACKAGE_ZIP_URL= cloudobjects/php-app-base

Building new image

# Dockerfile
FROM cloudobjects/php-app-base
ADD / /var/www/app/

Advanced configuration

You can specify the number of FastCGI PHP processes for handling incoming requests by setting the PHP_PROCESS_COUNT environment variable when running the container.
