Short Description
MySQL or SQLite Support, Ready to Go.
Full Description

Dockerfile used to build a wallabag docker image.

I forked this from bobmaerten/docker-wallabag, and made several changes to accomodate MySQL as an option.

Wallabag is an opensource project created by @nicosomb

This docker image is build upon the baseimage made by phusion.

##Image Details

  • This image will create a ready-to-go install of Wallabag that just needs to be configured by doing the last step of the web-based installer.
  • You can choose SQLite or MySQL as an option for the database.
  • MySQL is not included with this image so if you intend to use it you will need a linked or external SQL server.
  • If you use SQLite you may want to store the database outside of the container so you can migrate it later if need be.

##Docker Base Image
This image is based on phusion/baseimage-docker


If you want to prefetch the image to store locally before deploying you should run the following:

docker pull neosar/wallabag-docker

To Run a Basic Instance

docker run -d -p 80:80 neosar/wallabag-docker

To Run a Named Instance Linked to a MySQL Container

docker run --name wallabag --link sqlcontainer:sqlcontainer -p 80:80 -d neosar/wallabag-docker

To Run a Named Instance with a Persistent SQLite Database

docker run --name wallabag -p 80:80 -v /path/to/your/storage:/wallabag/db -d neosar/wallabag-docker

To Pass a Custom Salt Value to the Config (Highly Recommended)

docker run --name wallabag -p 80:80 -e WALLABAG_SALT=somesaltvaluemuchmoresecurethanthis -d neosar/wallabag-docker

Check the phusion/baseimage documentation for all kind of additional options and switches.


  • After installed you should be able to access it in the browser at the specified port.
  • At this point you should select either a SQLite or MySQL database, and specify any necessary values.
  • Set your login name and password.
  • The installer will automatically remove the install folder after it completes, and bring you to the login page.

I have symlinked /wallabag to it's full path (/var/www/wallabag) and exposed it as a volume for easier access.
