Short Description
Simple solution to have one NGINX docker/container instance for multiple domains (virtual hosts)
Full Description

The only thing you need to do is:

  1. Launch the contener
  2. Set all domain names to the IP that the container is exposed
  3. Put all your sites to /sites/ (volume exposed) directory with the domain names.

How does it work?

  1. detects and "creates" a virtual host based on the requested URL domain
  2. tries to find a folder with the domain name in the /sites/ directory (eg. /sites/domainname.com)
  3. If the folder exists, site is served - if not, the default one is served (/sites/default)

We've created this simple solution, as our whole infrastructure runs on Docker - and we wanted to have only one NGINX instance for all static sites.

Usage

To run it:

$ docker run -d -p 80:80 -v /path/to/sites:/sites/ teonite/nginx-dynamic-sites

Log files

There is only one error log file (/var/log/nginx/error.log). Access logs are created with domain name eg. /var/log/nginx/domainname.com.access.log.
