nginx php56
Full Description


A Nginx + PHP 5.6 (FPM) base container. Builds upon on the excellent phusion/baseimage-docker container. You can find the docker automated build here.


All services are defined and managed using the phusion/baseimage methodology. Logs are output using syslog and can be accessed using docker logs {container}.

  • Nginx
  • PHP-FPM (5.6)

Default Settings

The container sets up a www root folder in the following location:


As a final task a demo index.php is copied to this location.

Web Root

The following folder is specified as the default root web folder:


Note that the /var/www/public is the root folder for serving PHP files for your web server. The following ports are exposed:

  • 80 (HTTP)
  • 443 (HTTPS/SSL)

SSL Self Signed Certificate

The image generates a self-signed certificate for each container within the folder:


During build the build/default file is used to copy and configure nginx default settings. This includes a cipher suite for legacy browser (IE8+) support. See:

docker run --name nginx -e NR_APP_NAME="nginx-test" -p 80:80 -p 443:443 -d mstrazds/nginx-php56:latest

Build Folder (within repo)

Contains nginx config files as well as php-fpm settings. Also include file that offloads tasks from the Dockerfile to reduce layers.


This image supports mysql and postgres.


Note that PHP-FPM has been configured to pass through environment variables when starting the container using the clear_env = no flag within the /etc/php5/fpm/pool.d/www.conf file.
