Dockerfile to build an Alfresco container image.


Here is how you can help:

  • Send a Pull Request with your awesome new features and bug fixes
  • Report Issues


Pull the image from the docker index.

docker pull gui81/alfresco:latest

or pull a particular version:

docker pull gui81/alfresco:201707

Alternatively, you can build the image yourself:

git clone
cd docker-alfresco
docker build --tag="$USER/alfresco" .

Quick Start

Run the alfresco image with the name "alfresco".

docker run --name='alfresco' -it --rm -p 8080:8080 gui81/alfresco

NOTE: Please allow a few minutes for the application to start, especially if
populating the database for the first time.

Go to http://localhost:8080/share or point to the ip of your docker server.
On the Mac, if you are running docker-machine, then you can go to the ip
reported by:

docker-machine ip [name of Docker VM]

The default username and password are:

  • username: admin
  • password: admin

Alfresco should now be up and running. The following is an example that would
mount the appropriate volume, connect to a remote PostgreSQL database, and use
an external LDAP server for authentication:

docker run --name='alfresco' -it --rm -p 445:445 -p 7070:7070 -p 8080:8080 \
    -v '/host/alfresco/content:/content' \
    -v '/host/alfresco/data:/alfresco/alf_data' \
    -e 'CONTENT_STORE=/content' \
    -e 'LDAP_ENABLED=true' \
    -e 'LDAP_AUTH_USERNAMEFORMAT=uid=%s,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=example,dc=com' \
    -e 'LDAP_URL=ldap://' \
    -e 'LDAP_DEFAULT_ADMINS=admin' \
    -e 'LDAP_SECURITY_PRINCIPAL=uid=admin,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=example,dc=com' \
    -e 'LDAP_GROUP_SEARCHBASE=cn=groups,cn=accounts,dc=example,dc=com' \
    -e 'LDAP_USER_SEARCHBASE=cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=example,dc=com' \
    -e 'DB_KIND=postgresql' \
    -e '' \
    -e 'DB_USERNAME=alfresco' \
    -e 'DB_PASSWORD=alfresco' \
    -e 'DB_NAME=alfresco' \

If you want to use this image in production, then please read on.



In production, you will want to make sure to specify and mount the
CONTENT_STORE and /alfresco/alf_data directories to persist this data. Example:

  • /content
  • /alfresco/alf_data

Volumes can be mounted by passing the '-v' option to the docker run command.
The following is an example:

docker run --name alfresco -it --rm -v /host/alfresco/content:/content -v /host/alfresco/data:/alfresco/alf_data


If the DB_HOST environment variable is not set, or set to localhost, then the
image will use the internal PostgreSQL server.

PostgreSQL is the default, but MySQL/MariaDB is also supported. If you are
using an existing database installation, then make sure to create the database
and a user:

TODO: I might be able to add some options that aid in upgrading. For now
though, backup, backup, backup, and then follow this guide:
