Short Description
This is an apache web server docker with reverse proxy services enabled along with fail2ban.
Full Description

This docker image was forked from linuxserver/docker-apache. It adds fail2ban so that repeated failed password attempts are banned.

You can customize fail2ban by modifying the jail.local file that ends up in the container under /config/fail2ban/jail.local.


This is an apache web server docker with reverse proxy services enabled. Reverse proxy gives the ability going to for a service, you can go direct to and also enable HTTPS.


docker create \
--name="apache" \
-p 80:80 -p 443:443 \
-v /path/to/config:/config \


  • -p 80, 443 - the port(s)
  • -v /config/ - Location for reverse proxy files. Contains log, www, keys and apache folder
  • -e PGID for for GroupID - see below for explanation - optional
  • -e PUID for for UserID - see below for explanation - optional

It is based on phusion-baseimage with ssh removed, for shell access whilst the container is running do docker exec -it apache /bin/bash.

User / Group Identifiers

Sometimes when using data volumes (-v flags) permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container. We avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID. Ensure the data volume directory on the host is owned by the same user you specify and it will "just work" ™.

In this instance PUID=1001 and PGID=1001. To find yours use id user as below:

  $ id <dockeruser>
    uid=1001(dockeruser) gid=1001(dockergroup) groups=1001(dockergroup)

Setting up the application

  • Config files are located in /config/apache
  • Place web files in /config/www
  • Place keys in /config/keys


  • Upgrade to the latest version simply docker restart apache.
  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime docker logs -f apache.
