lighttpd Docker image
Security, speed, compliance, and flexibility -- all of these describe lighttpd
- Start a container with Docker
- Start a container with Docker Compose
- Build with Docker
- Build with Docker Compose
In the instructions that follow, replace:
<home-directory>with the path of the local directory you want to serve content from.
<config-directory>with the path of the local directory containing lighttpd configuration files that you want to use instead of the default ones.
To make it easier to create custom configuration files, the default configuration files are included in the
etc/lighttpddirectory of the Git repository.
<http-port>with the HTTP port you want the HTTP server to serve content to (e.g.
80for the standard HTTP port if not already in use on the host).
Start a container with Docker
With the default configuration files:
$ sudo docker run --rm -t -v <home-directory>:/var/www/localhost/htdocs -p <http-port>:80 sebp/lighttpd
With custom configuration files:
$ sudo docker run --rm -t -v <home-directory>:/var/www/localhost/htdocs -v <config-directory>:/etc/lighttpd -p <http-port>:80 sebp/lighttpd
Start a container with Docker Compose
Add the following lines in an existing or a new
lighttpd: image: sebp/lighttpd volumes: - <home-directory>:/var/www/localhost/htdocs - <config-directory>:/etc/lighttpd ports: - "<http-port>:80"
Note – The
- <config-directory>:… line is optional, it can be used to override the default configuration files with your own.
Then start a lighttpd container with:
$ sudo docker-compose up lighttpd
First clone or download the spujadas/lighttpd-docker GitHub repository, open a shell in the newly created
lighttpd-docker directory, then build the image and run a container using Docker or Docker Compose, as explained below.
Build with Docker
This command will build the image:
$ sudo docker build .
Build with Docker Compose
Build the image with this command:
$ sudo docker-compose build
