Drupal development with Docker

Quick and easy to use Docker container for your local Drupal development. It contains a LAMP stack and an SSH server, along with an up to date version of Drush. It is based on Debian Jessie.


This image contains:

  • Apache 2.4
  • MySQL 5.6
  • PostgreSQL 9.4
  • SQLite 3.8
  • PHP 5.6
  • Drupal 7.x, Web Experience Toolkit distribution 4.0, development edition (optionally supports current Drupal)
  • Composer
  • Drush dev-master version
  • Apache Solr 4.10.4
  • Adminer latest
  • Supervisor
  • nano, vim, git and Mercurial (hg)

When launched, the container will contain a ready-to-install Drupal distribution, with no database configured. You need to first create a database by using Adminer off the web root at /adminer.php, then select one of PostgreSQL, MySQL or SQLite as a database, when kicking off a Drupal install.


  • MySQL: root: (no password)
  • PostgreSQL: postgres:postgres
  • SSH: root:root
  • Supervisor supervisor:supervisor

Exposed ports

  • 80 (Apache)
  • 22 (SSH)
  • 3306 (MySQL)
  • 5432 (PostgreSQL)
  • 8983 (Solr)
  • 9001 (Supervisor)



Clone the repository locally and build it:

git clone
cd docker-drupal
docker build -t yourname/drupal .

Docker repository

Get the image:

docker pull jmdeleon/docker-drupal-wxt

Running the container

The container exposes its 80 port (Apache), its 3306 port (MySQL), its 5432 port (PostgreSQL), its 8983 port (Apache Solr), its 9001 port (Supervisor) and its 22 port (SSH). Make good use of this by forwarding your local ports. You should at least forward to port 80 (using -p local_port:80, like -p 8080:80). A good idea is to also forward port 22, so you can use Drush from your local machine using aliases, and directly execute commands inside the container, without attaching to it.

Here's an example just running the container and forwarding localhost:8080, localhost:2222, localhost:8984, localhost:9291 to the container:

docker run --rm -t -i --name youralias -p 8080:80 -p 2222:22 -p 8984:8983 -p 9201:9001 yourname/drupal

MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite and Adminer

Adminer is a tool that can be used to administer MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite databases, contained in a single file of PHP. Adminer is aliased to the web root at /adminer.php.

The MySQL port 3306 is exposed. The root account for MySQL is root (no password).

The PostgreSQL port 5432 is exposed. The root account for PostgreSQL is postgres (password postgres).


Supervisor provides a rudimentary web UI over port 9001 to manage several of the server processes (Apache, MySQL, PostgreSQL, sshd, Solr). It can be found over http localhost:9201 in the above example, logging in with the id supervisor and the password also supervisor.

Apache Solr

Apache Solr 4.x is installed across port 8983. If port 8983 is mapped as above, Solr is accessible via http localhost:8984/solr.
