Short Description
LAMP stack for Arch Linux
Full Description


defines a docker container running Arch Linux with the LAMP stack installed


  1. Install docker
  2. Download and start the LAMP server instance
    docker run --name lamp -p 80:80 -p 443:443 -d l3iggs/lamp
  3. Test the LAMP server
    Point your browser to:
    and you should see the default apache index. Follow the info.php link there and you should see detials of the php installation.
  4. [Optional] Change your webserver root data storage location
    It's likely desirable for your www root dir to be placed in a persistant storage location outside the docker container, on the host's file system for example. Let's imagine you wish to store your www files in a folder ~/www on the host's file system. Then insert the following into the docker startup command (from step 2. above) between run and --name:
    -v ~/www:/srv/http
    UID 33 or GID 33 (http in the container image) must have at least read permissions for ~/www on the host system. Generally, it's enough to do:
    chmod -R 770 ~/www; sudo chgrp -R 33 ~/www
    Read this if you run into permissions issues in the container.
  5. [Optional] Use your own ssl certificate
    This image comes with a self-generated ssl certificate and so you'll get browser warnings when you access your server via https (but the connection will be encrypted (with a private key that anyone can view by snooping around in the docker image)). You can (& should) replace these self signed certificates with your own, properly generated cert files.
    Assuming you have server.crt and server.key files in a directory ~/sslCert on the host machine:
    sudo chown -R root ~/sslCert; sudo chgrp -R root ~/sslCert
    sudo chmod 400 ~/sslCert/server.key
    You can then add -v ~/sslCert:/https to the docker run command line to use your ssl certificate files.
  6. [Optional] Stop the lamp docker server instance
    docker stop lamp
  7. [Optional] Delete the lamp docker server instance (after stopping it)
    docker rm lamp
  8. Profit.
