High Performance PHP Stack for Debian and CentOS, developed for Docker
Full Description

Docker High Performance PHP Stack

High Performance PHP stack builds based on Debian and CentOS, and developed as scripts for Docker.
Continues on Docker General Purpose System Distro builds.

Requires Docker Compose 1.6.x or higher due to the version 2 format of the docker-compose.yml files.

There are docker-compose.yml files per distribution, as well as docker-compose.override.yml and .env files, which may be used to override configuration.
An optional Makefile is provided to help with loading these with ease and perform commands in batch.

Scripts are also provided for each distribution to help test and deploy the installation procedures in non-Docker environments.

The images are automatically built at a repository in the Docker Hub registry.


The services use custom images as a starting point:


These are the services described by the dockerfile and dockercompose files:

  • Memcached 1.4.x, adds Memcached on top of upstream Standard service
  • Redis 3.2.x, adds Redis on top of upstream Standard service
  • MariaDB 10.x, adds MariaDB on top of upstream Standard service
  • PHP 5.6.x, adds PHP on top of upstream Devel service
  • HTTPd 2.2.x/2.4.x Web, adds HTTPd on top of upstream Standard/Devel service
  • HTTPd 2.2.x/2.4.x Proxy, adds HTTPd on top of upstream Standard service


These are the resulting images upon building:

  • Memcached 1.4.x service:
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian8_memcached14
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian7_memcached14
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:centos7_memcached14
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:centos6_memcached14
  • Redis 3.2.x service:
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian8_redis32
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian7_redis32
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:centos7_redis32
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:centos6_redis32
  • MariaDB 10.x service:
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian8_mariadb10
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian7_mariadb10
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:centos7_mariadb10
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:centos6_mariadb10
  • PHP 5.6.x service:
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian8_php56
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian7_php56
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:centos7_php56
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:centos6_php56
  • HTTPd 2.x.x Web service:
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian8_httpd24_web
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian7_httpd22_web
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:centos7_httpd24_web
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:centos6_httpd22_web
  • HTTPd 2.x.x Proxy service:
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian8_httpd24_proxy
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian7_httpd22_proxy
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:centos7_httpd24_proxy
    • solict/high-performance-php-stack:centos6_httpd22_proxy


These containers can be created from the images:

  • Memcached 1.4.x service:
    • debian8_memcached14_xxx
    • debian7_memcached14_xxx
    • centos7_memcached14_xxx
    • centos6_memcached14_xxx
  • Redis 3.2.x service:
    • debian8_redis32_xxx
    • debian7_redis32_xxx
    • centos7_redis32_xxx
    • centos6_redis32_xxx
  • MariaDB 10.x service:
    • debian8_mariadb10_xxx
    • debian7_mariadb10_xxx
    • centos7_mariadb10_xxx
    • centos6_mariadb10_xxx
  • PHP 5.6.x service:
    • debian8_php56_xxx
    • debian7_php56_xxx
    • centos7_php56_xxx
    • centos6_php56_xxx
  • HTTPd 2.x.x Web service:
    • debian8_httpd24_web_xxx
    • debian7_httpd22_web_xxx
    • centos7_httpd24_web_xxx
    • centos6_httpd22_web_xxx
  • HTTPd 2.x.x Proxy service:
    • debian8_httpd24_proxy_xxx
    • debian7_httpd22_proxy_xxx
    • centos7_httpd24_proxy_xxx
    • centos6_httpd22_proxy_xxx


From Docker Hub repository (manual)

Note: this method will not allow you to use the docker-compose files nor the Makefile.

  1. To pull the images, try typing:
    docker pull <image_url>
  2. You can start a new container interactively by typing:
    docker run -ti <image_url> /bin/bash

Where <image_url> is the full image url (lookup the image list above).


docker pull solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian8_memcached14
docker pull solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian8_redis32
docker pull solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian8_mariadb10
docker pull solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian8_php56
docker pull solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian8_httpd24_web
docker pull solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian8_httpd24_proxy

docker run -ti solict/high-performance-php-stack:debian8_memcached14 /bin/bash

From GitHub repository (automated)

Note: this method allows using docker-compose and the Makefile.

  1. Download the repository zip file and unpack it or clone the repository using:
    git clone
  2. Navigate to the project directory through the terminal:
    cd docker-high-performance-php-stack
  3. Type in the desired operation through the terminal:
    make <operation> DISTRO=<distro>

Where <distro> is the distribution/directory and <operation> is the desired docker-compose operation.


git clone;
cd docker-high-performance-php-stack;

# Example #1: quick start, with build
make up DISTRO=debian8;

# Example #2: quick start, with pull
make img-pull DISTRO=debian8;
make up DISTRO=debian8;

# Example #3: manual steps, with build
make img-build DISTRO=debian8;
make net-create DISTRO=debian8;
make vol-create DISTRO=debian8;
make con-create DISTRO=debian8;
make con-start DISTRO=debian8;
make con-ls DISTRO=debian8;

Type make in the terminal to discover all the possible commands.
