Ghost on Alpine Linux
This image is also available on Docker Hub.
We recommend using our images in conjunction with Docker-Compose. This allows for easier creation of containers with the proper volumes and ports enabled.
We have included an example docker-compose file to show how this image might be used both for development and production in a different project.
This image works out of the box with no volumes. It differs from the official Docker Ghost image by including a config.js file with some env variables defined.
- DEV_DOMAIN = Is the domain that is reachable on your development machine. This is typically your docker-machine host ip
- PROD_DOMAIN = When running this image in production (NODE_ENV=production), this is the domain that is used.
This image also runs with containers. It will accept a volume from your ghost content folder, as well as a custom config.js file. These must point to /var/lib/ghost/ - See the example docker-compose for specification.
Available ENV Variables
- DEV_DOMAIN: URL for Ghost Blog running in Development
DEV_FORCE_ADMIN_SSL: Force SSL (secure HTTP or https) for the admin panel in Development
