Deploy to Tutum

Out-of-the-box LAMP image (PHP+MySQL)


To create the image tutum/lamp, execute the following command on the tutum-docker-lamp folder:

docker build -t tutum/lamp .

You can now push your new image to the registry:

docker push tutum/lamp

Running your LAMP docker image

Start your image binding the external ports 80 and 3306 in all interfaces to your container:

docker run -d -p 80:80 -p 3306:3306 tutum/lamp

Test your deployment:

curl http://localhost/

Hello world!

Loading your custom PHP application

In order to replace the "Hello World" application that comes bundled with this docker image, create a new Dockerfile in an empty folder with the following contents:

FROM tutum/lamp:latest
RUN rm -fr /app && git clone /app
EXPOSE 80 3306
CMD ["/"]

replacing with your application's GIT repository. After that, build the new Dockerfile:

docker build -t username/my-lamp-app .

And test it:

docker run -d -p 80:80 -p 3306:3306 username/my-lamp-app

Test your deployment:

curl http://localhost/

That's it!

Connecting to the bundled MySQL server from within the container

The bundled MySQL server has a root user with no password for local connections. Simply connect from your PHP code with this user:

$mysql = new mysqli("localhost", "root");
echo "MySQL Server info: ".$mysql->host_info;

Connecting to the bundled MySQL server from outside the container

The first time that you run your container, a new user admin with all privileges will be created in MySQL with a random password. To get the password, check the logs of the container by running:

docker logs $CONTAINER_ID

You will see an output like the following:

You can now connect to this MySQL Server using:

    mysql -uadmin -p47nnf4FweaKu -h<host> -P<port>

Please remember to change the above password as soon as possible!
MySQL user 'root' has no password but only allows local connections

In this case, 47nnf4FweaKu is the password allocated to the admin user.

You can then connect to MySQL:

 mysql -uadmin -p47nnf4FweaKu

Remember that the root user does not allow connections from outside the container - you should use this admin user instead!

Setting a specific password for the MySQL server admin account

If you want to use a preset password instead of a random generated one, you can set the environment variable MYSQL_PASS to your specific password when running the container:

docker run -d -p 80:80 -p 3306:3306 -e MYSQL_PASS="mypass" tutum/lamp

You can now test your new admin password:

mysql -uadmin -p"mypass"

Disabling .htaccess

.htaccess is enabled by default. To disable .htaccess, you can remove the following contents from Dockerfile

# config to enable .htaccess
ADD apache_default /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf
RUN a2enmod rewrite
