Full Description


A MongoDB Dockerfile to spin up a mongodb container.


This image is available as a trusted build on the docker index. The easiest way to get it on your server is using docker pull:

.. code-block:: bash

$ docker pull swcc/docker-mongodb

Alternatively, you can clone this repository and build the image yourself:

.. code-block:: bash

$ docker build -t=swcc/docker-mongodb .

Using this image

After building/retrieving the Docker container:

.. code-block:: bash

# Run the docker container
docker run -p 27017:27017 -name mongodb -d swcc/docker-mongodb /sbin/my_init --enable-insecure-key # Give container a name in case it's linked to another app container
  • docker run - starts a new docker container
    • -p 27017:27017 - Optionnal: binds the local port 27017 to the container's port 27017, so a local.
    • -d swcc/docker-mongodb - Use the image tagged "swcc/docker-mongodb" if you need to link it to another container for instance.
    • -name mongodb - Give it a name to easily linked it to another container.
    • /sbin/my_init - Run the init scripts used to kick off long-running processes and other bootstrapping, as per phusion/baseimage-docker
    • --enable-insecure-key - Enable a generated SSL key so you can SSH into the container, again as per phusion/baseimage-docker. Generate your own SSH key for production use.
  • If you use this with phusion/passenger-ruby20 or phusion/passenger-nodejs, then naming this container via -name mongodb will allow you to link it with the web-app.
