A Dockerfile that produces a Docker Image for Memcached.
master branch currently hosts Memcached 1.4.
Different versions of Memcached are located at the github repo branches.
Build the image
To create the image
frodenas/memcached, execute the following command on the
$ docker build -t frodenas/memcached .
Run the image
To run the image and bind to host port 11211:
$ docker run -d --name memcached -p 11211:11211 frodenas/memcached
The first time you run your container, a new user
memcached with all privileges will be created with a random password.
To get the password, check the logs of the container by running:
docker logs <CONTAINER_ID>
You will see an output like the following:
======================================================================== Memcached User: "memcached" Memcached Password: "VyUXlHIlOG2gSEjX" ========================================================================
If you want to preset credentials instead of a random generated ones, you can set the following environment variables:
MEMCACHED_USERNAMEto set a specific username
MEMCACHED_PASSWORDto set a specific password
On this example we will preset our custom username and password:
$ docker run -d \ --name memcached \ -p 11211:11211 \ -e MEMCACHED_USERNAME=myusername \ -e MEMCACHED_PASSWORD=mypassword \ frodenas/memcached
When you run the container, it will start the Memcached without any arguments. If you want to pass any arguments,
just add them to the
$ docker run -d ---name memcached -p 11211:11211 frodenas/memcached -m 128
