Full Description

Docker and Zend Framework 2

Here you'll find a Dockerfile and some configurations to run
your Zend Framework 2 applications within a docker container.

Although this image has configurations for production environments included,
it's main purpose is to quickly start developing a ZF2 application.
If you decide to use this image for setting up a production environment, be sure to excessively test if
your application runs without problems in this environment and also change the exposed port
in the Dockerfile from 8085 (or whatever port you used for your app on dev) to 80.


  • PHP 5.6 including multiple extensions (see Dockerfile)
  • Apache 2.4 including mod_rewrite
  • Config for DEV and PROD (not recommended) usage
    • DEV
      • xdebug configured with remote_connect_back
    • PROD
      • opcache with recommended settings for performance
      • xdebug extension disabled by default

Running your ZF2 application in Docker

New project

cd /home/user/new-zf2-app
composer create-project --stability="dev" zendframework/skeleton-application .
sudo docker run -d -p 8085:80 -v $(pwd):/zf2-app octavianparalescu/docker-zf2

Now visit http://localhost:8085 and check out your running
Zend Skeleton Application.

Existing project

cd /home/user/your-zf2-app
sudo docker run -d -p 8085:80 -v $(pwd):/zf2-app octavianparalescu/docker-zf2

Using Docker for Windows

Docker for Windows should run like Docker for Mac or Linux. The difference in this case
would be that you should replace the env var "$(pwd)" in the docker run command with the
counterpart in Windows "%cd%" and also remove the "sudo" part.

Options / environment variables to fine tune the config

docker run \
    -e DOCKER_ZF2_ENV="DEV" \ # DEV|PROD copies dev or prod config to /etc (default:DEV)
    -e PHP_MODS_DISABLE="xdebug sqlite" # explicitly disable php modules (space separated list of modules)
    -e PHP_MODS_ENABLE="mysql opcache" # explicitly enable php modules (space separated list of modules)
