Full Description


supported tags

latest: latest php (as of now php 7.1)

php-7.1: php 7.0 branch, most recent version of PHP 7.1

php-7.0: php 7.0 branch, most recent version of PHP 7.0

php-5.6: same image but with php-5.6

Image to run some symfony projects with a default configuration. Base is the official PHP image with apache webserver.
The image can be configured to have mail-delivery (postfix/sendmail wrapper) and cron activated as this is used in most of our projects. But there is no need to have these services enabled - it can be configured to save some server ressources.


  • default configuration for symfony 2/3 projects just ready to use
  • PHP Acceleration via opcache
  • composer installed in /usr/bin/composer
  • GIT-Client for use with composer
  • ZIP/UNZIP for use with composer
  • MYSQL and PDO enabled
  • MYSQL Client packages installed
  • Symfony 2.0 Projects may need an update (PDO serialize/deserialize issues with newer PHP Version) (correct: this issue is doctrine related, not symfony)

This image is used in our hosting projects, so it is actively maintained but as of now it is NOT in a stable state as it is required for any production use.

Webserver is configured to have a Symfony 2/3 file and directory structure in the default hosting. Rewriting is configured to use app.php
There is a postfix mta integrated for use with php mail() - configuration see config-variables
