lnmpa-php-5.2 is a PHP-FPM Server boxed in a Docker image built by Tommy Lau.
What is in this image?
This image is a php web development environment cooked from scratch with PHP version 5.2.17. Though PHP 5.2 is obsoleted, but a lot of PHP applications are still PHP 5.2 only, such like ECShop and etc. So I cooked this image with the following features.
- Fixed docker-php-ext-install script error while checking ext-module.ini
- Enabled GD support with GIF, JPEG, PNG, WBMP and XBM
- Enabled mbstring
- Enabled mcrypt
- Enabled mysql
- Enabled mysqli
- Enabled pdo_mysql
- Enabled soap
- Set php timezone to Etc/UTC
- Add boot2docker permissions fix
How to use this image
Single instance mode
Get the docker image by running the following commands:
docker pull tommylau/php-5.2
Start an instance:
docker run --name php -v /path/to/web:/var/www/html -d tommylau/php-5.2
This will start an instance, and you are ready to go.
Linking with other containers
To use this image linking with MySQL, you have to have a running MySQL instance, more information about MySQL docker image, please refer to tommylau/mysql. Suppose you have a MySQL instance named mysql5.6_server, we can link it in our php instance with the name mysql like this:
docker run --name php -v /path/to/web:/var/www/html --link mysql5.6_server:mysql -d tommylau/php-5.2
Then in the instance, you can use the hostname
mysql to connect to the database.
