What is NGINX?
Nginx (pronounced "engine-x") is an open source reverse proxy server for HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP, POP3, and IMAP protocols, as well as a load balancer, HTTP cache, and a web server (origin server). The nginx project started with a strong focus on high concurrency, high performance and low memory usage. It is licensed under the 2-clause BSD-like license and it runs on Linux, BSD variants, Mac OS X, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, as well as on other *nix flavors. It also has a proof of concept port for Microsoft Window..
This container is not meant to be run standalone as it is part of a Rancher Catalog item. If it suites your purpose you are more then welcome to use it.
The container is optimized to run !Joomla, so the default.conf is configured for it. Check the build section to customize this container for your needs.
This image is based on the popular Alpine Linux project, available in the alpine official image. Alpine Linux is much smaller than most distribution base images (~5MB), and thus leads to much slimmer images in general.
docker run -d flowman/nginx:tag
Exposing the port
docker run -d \ -p 8080:80 \ flowman/nginx:tag
Example Rancher docker-compose stack
nginx: image: flowman/nginx:latest labels: io.rancher.sidekicks: php-fpm, www-data volumes_from: - 'www-data' ports: - "80:80" php-fpm: image: flowman/php-fpm:7.0.6 net: "container:nginx" volumes_from: - 'www-data' environment: XDEBUG: 'true' www-data: image: flowman/joomla:3.5.1 net: none command: /bin/true labels: io.rancher.container.start_once: true
Example docker-compose file
version: '2' services: nginx: image: flowman/nginx:latest ports: - "80:80" volumes_from: - 'joomla' php-fpm: image: flowman/php-fpm:7.0.6 network_mode: "service:nginx" volumes_from: - 'joomla' environment: XDEBUG: 'true' joomla: image: flowman/joomla:3.5.1 network_mode: none
For example, if you need to edit the config files, edit the default.conf and than build-it.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:Flowman/docker-nginx.git cd ./docker-nginx docker build --rm -t flowman/nginx .
