LAMP with Docker for Drupal development
It contains a LAMP stack and an SSH server, Drush, Drupal console etc.
Based on Debian Jessie image.
This image contains:
- Apache 2.4
- MySQL 5.5
- PHP 5.6
- Drush master
- Drupal console
Get the exact versions of the installed software using:
// If there is a running container docker exec [CONTAINER_NAME] cat /SOFTWARE.txt // If there is no container from the current image docker run -ti --rm dropdog/docker cat /SOFTWARE.txt
IMPORTANT: No Drupal installation and default database exist on this image. You should add it on your own!
When launching, the container will contain a fully-installed, ready to use infrastructure for Drupal 8.x development.
- 80 (Apache)
- 22 (SSH)
- 3306 (MySQL)
Get the image from docker hub: dropdog/docker. There is only one tag available, "latest".
docker pull dropdog/docker
If you want to run Drupal tests, you may need to take some additional steps.
Drupal's Simpletest will use cURL to simulate user interactions with a freshly installed site when running tests. This "virtual" site resides under
http://localhost:[forwarded ip]. This gives issues, though, as the container uses port
By default, the container's virtual host will actually listen to any port, but you still need to tell Apache on which ports it should bind. By default, it will bind on
8080, so if you use the above examples, you can start running your tests straight away.
But, if you choose to forward to a different port, you must add it to Apache's configuration and restart Apache. You can simply do the following:
// If you forwarded to another port than 8022, change accordingly. Password is "root". ssh root@localhost -p 8022
//Change the port number accordingly. This example is if you forward to port 8081. echo "Listen 8081" >> /etc/apache2/ports.conf /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
ssh root@localhost -p 8022 -C 'echo "Listen 8081" >> /etc/apache2/ports.conf && /etc/init.d/apache2 restart'
