Full Description



Source to build a docker container suitable for running a PHP framework like SilverStripe.

This was created specifically for running SilverStripe sites, but could be easily modified to run any PHP framework.

Base image is Debian 8 "jessie". Additional software installed:

  • wget
  • curl
  • supervisor
  • nginx 1.6.2
  • HHVM 3.10
  • MariaDB 10.0.22
  • composer



docker build -t halkyon/docker-silverstripe-hhvm .


The following command will mount your SilverStripe site onto the container as /var/www/, and forward port 80
to port 8000 on the host. You can access the site via http://localhost:8000

docker run -d -p 8000:80 -v /path/to/site:/var/www halkyon/docker-silverstripe-hhvm

With Vagrant

Vagrant can be used for cases where the host cannot run docker. This is especially useful for those on Mac OS X,
for example.

The following command will create (or re-use) a docker host VM which will host the docker container, and forward
port 80 to port 8000 on the VM, then onto port 8000 on the host machine. You can access the site via http://localhost:8000

WEB_FORWARDED_PORT=8000 WEBROOT_PATH=/path/to/site vagrant up --provider="docker"

WEB_FORWARDED_PORT is the port to forward port 80 to the docker host VM, and then to the host machine. Default is 8000.

WEBROOT_PATH refers to a path on the host machine containing a site you want to mount as the webroot on the container.
This will then be mounted on the host VM and exposed to the docker container as a mounted volume.

If you're doing anything with multiple containers, you'll probably want to heavily customise the Vagrantfile to
support that, as the provided configuration is only really useful in the context of a single container.
