Full Description

PHP 5.3 Apache

PHP 5.3 reached EOL on 14 Aug 2014 and thus, official docker support was dropped. I still needed to run 5.3 so I built this image based on the latest official builds of PHP.

What is PHP?

PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development, but which can also be used as a general-purpose programming language. PHP can be added to straight HTML or it can be used with a variety of templating engines and web frameworks. PHP code is usually processed by an interpreter, which is either implemented as a native module on the web-server or as a common gateway interface (CGI).

How to use this image.

With Command Line

For PHP projects run through the command line interface (CLI), you can do the following.

Create a Dockerfile in your PHP project

FROM eugeneware/php-5.3
COPY . /usr/src/myapp
WORKDIR /usr/src/myapp
CMD [ "php", "./your-script.php" ]

Then, run the commands to build and run the Docker image:

docker build -t my-php-app .
docker run -it --rm --name my-running-app my-php-app

Run a single PHP script

For many simple, single file projects, you may find it inconvenient to write a complete Dockerfile. In such cases, you can run a PHP script by using the PHP Docker image directly:

docker run -it --rm --name my-running-script -v "$PWD":/usr/src/myapp -w /usr/src/myapp eugeneware/php-5.3 php your-script.php

Installing modules

To install additional modules use a Dockerfile like this:

FROM eugeneware:php-5.3

# Installs curl
RUN docker-php-ext-install curl

Then build the image:

$ docker build -t my-php .

Without a Dockerfile

If you don't want to include a Dockerfile in your project, it is sufficient to do the following:

docker run -it --rm --name my-php-fpm-app -v "$PWD":/var/www/html eugeneware/php-5.3


A big credit to helderco for the fpm version
of this image.
