###How to use this image
docker run --name some-wordpress --link some-mysql:mysql -d ctsollars/wordpress
The following environment variables are also honored for configuring your WordPress instance:
-e WORDPRESS_DB_USER=...(defaults to “root”)
-e WORDPRESS_DB_PASSWORD=...(defaults to the value of the MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD environment variable from the linked mysql container)
-e WORDPRESS_DB_NAME=...(defaults to “wordpress”)
-e WORDPRESS_NONCE_SALT=...(default to unique random SHA1s)
WORDPRESS_DB_NAME specified does not already exist in the given MySQL container, it will be created automatically upon container startup, provided that the
WORDPRESS_DB_USER specified has the necessary permissions to create it.
If you'd like to be able to access the instance from the host without the container's IP, standard port mappings can be used:
docker run --name some-wordpress --link some-mysql:mysql -p 8080:80 -d ctsollars/wordpress
Then, access it via
http://host-ip:8080 in a browser.
If you would like to mount a host directory for wp-content, use the
docker run --name some-wordpress --link some-mysql:mysql -v /path/to/content:/var/www/html/wp-content -d ctsollars/wordpress
