Docker Centos 6 OpenResty with Naxsi RPM Builder

This project contains a Dockerfile for a container that will build an OpenResty RPM package with Naxsi and Lua included, statically linked to CentOS 6 packages.

Getting Started

These instructions will tell you how to use this container to build an RPM.


You'll need some form of docker that can have a volume mounted where it'll put the RPM.

Boot2docker works if you want to test it on your local machine. The following commands once you run boot2docker will get it up an running. It mounts the "/Users" directory in the VM, we'll use this as the output path for the RPM to get it on our hosts directory.

boot2docker init 
boot2docker up 
eval "$(boot2docker shellinit)"


Assuming you have a docker instance to communicate with

docker build -t rpm-builder-waf . && docker run -v $(pwd):/rpmbuild rpm-builder-waf  

Will cause an RPM to fall out at $(pwd) named ngx_openresty-

You can customise the RPM output directory in the container by setting the $RPM_OUTPUT_DIR environment variable.

RPM Details

  • The RPM will install to /usr/local/openresty/
  • The RPM comes with a SystemV script
  • The RPM will install example HTTPS certificate at /usr/local/openresty/nginx/conf/example.crt and /usr/local/openresty/nginx/conf/example.key
  • The nginx configuration file to set which servers it connects to can be found at /usr/local/openresty/nginx/conf/nginx.conf

Testing the RPM

There is bundled a vagrant file that starts a CentOS 6 machine, that can be used for testing the RPM.

It has a base image for VirtualBox.

Built With

  • OpenResty - It's very suitable for making WAF firewalls.
  • FPM - Makes making RPMs very easy.
  • Docker - So we can statically link to RedHat compatible binaries even if we're not running on RedHat.
  • Naxsi - Framework for writing Web Application Firewalls
