AskBot Q&A forum - Docker image

Hi interested person,

This is Askbot in a container so you can quickly check it out. It exposes a data volume so you could make the data persistant.

The Dockerfile installs the askbot from pip. See Dockerfile for more info.


Do this:

docker run -v /tmp/askbot:/data/ -p 8080:80 -d zout84/askbot-docker

It will download the image, and run it on port 8080. Data will be stored in /tmp/askbot. You can also use a datacontainer o.c.

Happy testing!


It's not intended for production usage. Mainly because it's running through Django's testserver. You can leave SQLite in. We use it all the time, and it's no problem at all for small teams.
