Base docker image to run PHP applications on Apache

Building the base image

To create the base image tutum/apache-php, execute the following command on the tutum-docker-php folder:

docker build -t tutum/apache-php .

Running your Apache+PHP docker image

Start your image binding the external ports 80 in all interfaces to your container:

docker run -d -p 80:80 tutum/apache-php

Test your deployment:

curl http://localhost/

Hello world!

Enable .htaccess files

If you app uses .htaccess files you need to pass the ALLOW_OVERRIDE environment variable

docker run -d -p 80:80 -e ALLOW_OVERRIDE=true tutum/apache-php

Loading your custom PHP application

This image can be used as a base image for your PHP application. Create a new Dockerfile in your
PHP application folder with the following contents:

FROM tutum/apache-php

After that, build the new Dockerfile:

docker build -t username/my-php-app .

And test it:

docker run -d -p 80:80 username/my-php-app

Test your deployment:

curl http://localhost/

That's it!

Loading your custom PHP application with composer requirements

Create a Dockerfile like the following:

FROM tutum/apache-php
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -yq git && rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*
RUN rm -fr /app
ADD . /app
RUN composer install
  • Replacing git with any dependencies that your composer packages might need.
  • Add your php application to /app
