Short Description
Image of a reverse apache proxy used to enable SSL.
Full Description


You need to build the image yourself and send the required build-arg :

docker build --build-arg DOMAIN_NAME=myDomain \
              --build-arg PRIVATE_IP=myPrivateIP \
              --build-arg PRIVATE_PORT=myPort \
              -t nargonath/apache-reverse-proxy \

The DOMAIN_NAME variable is used for the virtualhost created by the image.
The PRIVATE_IP is the private ip given to your host machine on the docker bridge network. It is used for the container to contact the host privately.
The PRIVATE_PORT is the port of the container you wish to proxy the HTTP to on the host.

Once you have built the image, you need to run it with :

docker run -d --name myName \
            -p 80:80 \
            -p 443:443 \
            -v letsencrypt:/opt/letsencrypt \

The -v flag will create a named volume letsencrypt which will be initialized with the content of the letsencrypt git repo. It will be used to store the letsencrypt installation which will contain the SSL certificate. You will be able to share that volume between containers and you will be able to access it from your host machine. You don't want to specify a host mounting point with the -v flag because docker will hide the content of that particular folder otherwise to prevent replacing them.
