Full Description


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.
