Docker Toran Proxy

Build Status Docker Pulls Docker Stars Average time to resolve an issue Percentage of issues still open GitHub license


Toran acts as a proxy for Packagist and GitHub. It is meant to be set up on your own server or even inside your office. This offers a few benefits:

  • Redundant infrastructure to ensure your deployments never fail and your developers can work at any time. Packages will be installed from your proxy with a fallback to GitHub, ensuring a maximum availability.
  • Higher bandwidth for faster installations. You can set up Toran in your local network or on a server near you.

This is forked, rewritten and optimized version of cedvan/docker-toran-proxy.

Quick start

docker run --name toran-proxy -d \
    -p 80:80 \
    -p 443:443 \

Go with your browser to localhost

Save data

Files are saved to /data in container. Just mount this volume for save your configurations and repositories

docker run --name toran-proxy -d \
    -p 80:80 \
    -p 443:443 \
    -v /opt/toran-proxy:/data \

Domain name

docker run --name toran-proxy -d \
    -p 80:80 \
    -p 443:443 \
    -e "" \

Add ssh config for private repository

docker run --name toran-proxy -d \
    -p 80:80 \
    -p 443:443 \
    -v /opt/toran-proxy/ssh:/data/ssh \

Files supported : id_rsa,, config and known_hosts

Configure Cron timer

docker run --name toran-proxy -d \
    -p 80:80 \
    -p 443:443 \
    -e "TORAN_CRON_TIMER=half" \

Custom SSL certificate for HTTPS

docker run --name toran-proxy -d \
    -p 443:443 \
    -p 443:443 \
    -v /opt/toran-proxy/certs:/data/certs \

Add toran-proxy.key and toran-proxy.crt in folder certs

Generation of Self Signed Certificates

Generation of self-signed SSL certificates involves a simple 3 step procedure.

STEP 1: Create the server private key

openssl genrsa -out toran-proxy.key 2048

STEP 2: Create the certificate signing request (CSR)

openssl req -new -key toran-proxy.key -out toran-proxy.csr

STEP 3: Sign the certificate using the private key and CSR

openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in toran-proxy.csr -signkey toran-proxy.key -out toran-proxy.crt

Congratulations! you have now generated an SSL certificate thats valid for 365 days.

HTTP Authentification

Use file htpasswd to add authentification ?

Add auth.json to composer configuration home folder

    "http-basic": {
        "toran-proxy.domain.tld": {
            "username": "myUsername",
            "password": "myPassword"
