Nginx is configured to automatically resolve all domains ending with
It is very convenient: you can simply create the directory
test-app(domain name without
.dev) in the
web document root and it will be available by the link
http://test-app.dev/(NOTICE: it requires some preliminary
configuration, see #additional software for detailed information).
- user: root

composer(with assets plugin),
phpmyadmin(by default, automatic login
It stores source codes and mysql data on the host machine, therefore, you don't need to deploy your app each
time you start the container.
Php process run by user with UID 1000 (by default, the same UID as your host machine user),
thus it can access all files. At the same time, you have all permissions for generated files.
How to use this image
For comfortable work, I suggest you to use dnsmasq for automatic resolving of such domains as
You can install it in Ubuntu this way (run as
apt-get install dnsmasq echo "address=/.dev/127.0.0.1" >> /etc/dnsmasq.conf
By default container binds
80 port on local
127.0.0.1:80. If you are using another binding, change the
ip address in the previous code to the one you use.
Another variant is to update
/etc/hosts manually, each time adding something like this:
how to run container
First of all, you need install Docker on your machine. All command need run as root or you
need add your user to docker group.
docker run -d --name=web-server -v ~/work/www:/web -v ~/work/mysql:/var/lib/mysql -p 127.0.0.1:80:80 tolik505/docker-lemp
--name=web-server set container name, for simple access to it in the future: you can start, restart and
stop the created container using its name:
docker start web-server
-p 127.0.0.1:80:80 bind the port
80 of the container to the port
80 on the host machine (on 127.0.0.1 localhost)
-v ~/work/mysql:/var/lib/mysql bind mount a volume of mysql data directory from host machine (
-v /work/www:/web bind mount a volume of source codes from host machine (
/var/www) to container (
-d detached mode: run the container in the background and print the new container ID
how to access container terminal
You can access container terminal like this:
docker exec -ti web-server su docker
It logs you in the container as special user
docker, which can work with source code and console commands.
But if you need
root privileges, run:
docker exec -ti web-server bash
It logs you in as
