Using this image

This image is intended for use as a base image for your application. It is based on the Lucee4 image to provide Lucee 4.5.2 running on Tomcat 8 with a java 8 runtime. You can run this image as a daemon and spin up the Lucee server with:

docker run -d -p 8080:8080 pixl8/preside-cms

Browsing to localhost:8080 from your host will then show a dummy index page with system information. If you see that running, all is well.


Tags for this image are either:

  • latest for the latest official release
  • bleeding-edge for the up-coming release
  • x.x.x for specific release versions

Creating your own images
