How to use this image

docker run --name some-mediawiki --link some-mysql:mysql -d synctree/mediawiki

The following environment variables are also honored for configuring your
MediaWiki instance:

  • -e MEDIAWIKI_DB_HOST=ADDR:PORT (defaults to the address and port of the
    linked mysql container)
  • -e MEDIAWIKI_DB_USER=... (defaults to "root")
  • -e MEDIAWIKI_DB_PASSWORD=... (defaults to the value of the
    MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD environment variable from the linked mysql container)
  • -e MEDIAWIKI_DB_NAME=... (defaults to "mediawiki")

If the MEDIAWIKI_DB_NAME specified does not already exist in the given MySQL
container, it will be created automatically upon container startup, provided
that the MEDIAWIKI_DB_USER specified has the necessary permissions to create

To use with an external database server, use MEDIAWIKI_DB_HOST (along with

docker run --name some-mediawiki -e MEDIAWIKI_DB_HOST= \
    -e MEDIAWIKI_DB_USER=app -e MEDIAWIKI_DB_PASSWORD=secure synctree/mediawiki

If you'd like to be able to access the instance from the host without the
container's IP, standard port mappings can be used:

docker run --name some-mediawiki --link some-mysql:mysql -p 8080:80 -d synctree/mediawiki

Then, access it via http://localhost:8080 or http://host-ip:8080 in a browser.
