Quick Start

You can manually launch the Wordpress container and the supporting Nginx and Database containers.

Wordpress :

docker run -t wordpress -e WORDPRESS_DB_HOST=mariadb -e WORDPRESS_PASSWORD=password --link mariadb evild/alpine-wordpress

Database & Wordpress containers are running. You can now link Wordpress to a nginx server.
