LaraDock Multi

Laradock wrapper template for running multiple related projects with different versions of PHP and Node.js such as Microservice Architecture (MSA)

Demo used

Instruction for configure step-by-step

  • Integrate Demo of usage with Cloud env (Yandex Cloud for example as simple and useful)


  • cmd/ laravel - connect to LaraDock-multi service
  • cmd/ - waiting for all logs
  • cmd/ nginx laravel - waiting for logs of nginx and laravel workers or cli
  • cmd/ - shop details about LaraDock-multi services
  • cmd/ - remove, load updates and rebuild each one LaraDock-multi services
  • cmd/ laravel-fpm nginx rebuild only laravel-fpm and nginx
  • cmd/ - stop all services
  • cmd/ nginx api - stop services: nginx and api
  • cmd/ - start all services
  • cmd/ nginx api - start services: nginx and api


Install Docker-CE with Docker-compose

apt install docker docker-compose

Download Laradock-Multi with laradock

git clone
cd laradock-multi

Autoconfigure and Auto-deploy

You cal automate Configure, Upgrade and download Laradock with command


Force Upgrade Laradock Multi. It's will remove laradock path

cmd/ upgrade

Manual Configure(upgrade) multi-env

git clone
cp ./.laradock-multi/. ./laradock/ -r

Also, you can use git submodule add

Install projects

PHP Site like Laravel

I will use dummy laravel-like php site for demo

mkdir projects/laravel
mkdir projects/laravel/public
echo '<?php phpinfo();' >> projects/laravel/public/index.php

But you can install original laravel or your exist project

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel projects/laravel


I will use pretty CoreUi admin template on ReactJS

git clone projects/dashboard
cp laradock/nginx/sites/dashboard.conf.example laradock/nginx/sites/dashboard.conf

It's already added: dashboard docker in docker-compose.multi.yml. You can copy this section for using with other node.js projects


Feel free to changing .laradock-multi options


Using is similar to


Important note:

  • Nginx crush in runtime after load config, if some dependency service (php-fpm, node.js) not started. So, immediately cmd/ will return success result and failed in next call
  • laravel service is empty by default
  • dashboard not configured by default

HTTP Service


docker-compose override

Also you can use docker-compose.override.yml But it's depends on platform

cd laradock;
cp docker-compose.multi.yml docker-compose.override.yml

and remove all typical service like db or docker-in-docker Result:

  • docker-compose ps will equal:
    • docker-compose ps -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.override.yml
  • docker-compose logs will equal:
    • docker-compose logs -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose.override.yml

But docker-compose up without specs will failed

CMD from project

Open default preoject with IDE

Switch to internal bash terminal

use Laradock-multi:


copy this dir to each new project

cp -r projects/default/cmd projects/laravel/cmd 


git pull
cd laradock
git pull
cd ..

add all changes

  • from: diff .laradock-multi/docker-compose.yml.orig laradock/docker-compose.yml

    • to laradock/docker-compose.multiple.yml
      • workspace to api, laravel, default
      • php-fpm to api-fpm, laravel-fpm, php-fpm
      • each one with same name
  • from: diff .laradock-multi/env-example.orig laradock/env-example

    • to laradick/.env

Rebuild each Laradock-Multi service



  • .laradock-multi/ - custom services path for LaraDock
  • cmd/ - simple command for using with autocomplete
    • - cd to LaraDock path (for internal use)
    • - connect to LaraDock-multi service
    • - logs -f all LaraDock-multi service or cmd/ laravel nginx for listed
    • - show info for LaraDock-multi service
    • - remove, pull and rebuild each one LaraDock-multi services or cmd/ laravel nginx for listed
    • - stop LaraDock-multi services or cmd/ laravel nginx for listed
    • - start all LaraDock-multi services or cmd/ laravel nginx for listed
  • dumps/ - path for DB dumps. That will be mount inside DB-service
  • laradock/ - original laradock + laradock-multi
  • projects/ - custom projects
    • api/ - API project with PHP 5.6
    • dashboard/ - CoreUI project with NodeJS+React (after install)
    • default/ - Default localhost project for internal use or service list
    • laravel/ - Laravel project with PHP 7.4 (after install)
  • - Readme file with instructions
You can’t perform that action at this time.
