Full Description


A complete stack for running Symfony 2 atop Nginx, PHP-FPM, PostgreSQL and ELK.
Each of them running in containers, using docker-compose tool.


First, clone this repository:

$ git clone

Next, put your Symfony application into symfony folder and do not forget to add in your /etc/hosts file.

Then, at first launch, just type:

$ make
$ make install

This command run docker build (docker images setup), docker-compose up, then initialize (empty) symfony postgresql db using psql.

Next time, since your images are already built, you'll just have to type:

$ make run

This command run docker-compose and output your working IP (useful to any OS X + boot2docker users).

You are done, you can now visit your Symfony application on the following URL:

Use Kibana!

You can access ElasticSearch's Kibana to visualize Nginx & Symfony logs by visiting


How may I use composer command

$ docker exec -ti $(docker ps -f name=php -q) composer

How may I use Symfony's php app/console command?

$ docker exec -ti $(docker ps -f name=php -q) php /var/www/symfony/app/console cache:clear

How may I use Postgre's psql command?

$ docker exec -ti $(docker ps -f name=postgre -q) psql -U postgres

This is sorcery, tell me how it works!?

Have a look at the docker-compose.yml file, here are the docker-compose built images:

  • application: This is the Symfony application code container,
  • postgres: This is the PostgreSQL database container,
  • php: This is the PHP-FPM container in which the application volume is mounted,
  • nginx: This is the Nginx webserver container in which application volume is mounted too,
  • elk: This is a ELK stack container which uses Logstash to collect logs, send them into Elasticsearch and visualize them with Kibana.

This results in the following running containers:

$ docker-compose ps
        Name                      Command               State              Ports
        docker_application_1   /bin/bash                        Up
        docker_elk_1           /usr/bin/supervisord -n -c ...   Up>80/tcp
        docker_nginx_1         nginx                            Up      443/tcp,>80/tcp
        docker_php_1           php5-fpm -F                      Up      9000/tcp
        docker_postgres_1      / postgres   Up>5432/tcp

How to build my Docker images separately?

$ docker build -t symfony/application application
$ docker build -t symfony/php-fpm php-fpm
$ docker build -t symfony/nginx nginx
$ docker build -t symfony/postgres postgres

How may I read my logs?

You can access Nginx and Symfony application logs in the following directories into your host machine:

  • logs/nginx
  • logs/symfony

I have a RAM issue using composer

PHP's package manager, composer, internally increases the memory_limit to 1G. To get the current memory_limit value, run:

$ docker exec -ti $(docker ps -f name=php -q) php -r "echo ini_get('memory_limit').PHP_EOL;"
