Requirements

You need a server with PHP >= 5.6 and a relational database.

Docker

Docker-Compose

The easiest way is to start the content-management-system inside a docker machine with an MySql database. Copy the following lines to a file named docker-compose.yml.

version: '3.3'

services:
  db:
    image: mysql:5.7
    volumes:
      - db_data:/var/lib/mysql
    restart: always
    environment:
      MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD: uoia97723sdsd9782
      MYSQL_DATABASE: cms
      MYSQL_USER: cms
      MYSQL_PASSWORD: dsfg77er35fsd08435
  cms:
    depends_on:
    - db
    image: openrat/openrat-cms:latest
    ports:
    - "8000:8080" # CMS
    - "8001:8081" # public
    - "8002:8082" # public with host routing
    restart: always
    environment:
      DB_TYPE: mysql
      DB_HOST: db
      DB_USER: cms
      DB_PASS: dsfg77er35fsd08435
      DB_NAME: cms
      CMS_MOTD:
      CMS_NAME: Content-Management
      CMS_OPERATOR: Your Company
  volumes:
    db_data: {}

Start the environment with docker-compose up -d.

Now the CMS is available on localhost:8000. The published website is available on localhost:8001

Start the single CMS docker container

Download and run the docker image from Dockerhub, you need an already running database.

docker run -d -p 8080:8080 -e DB_HOST=$host -e DB_NAME=$name -e DB_USER=$user -e DB_PASS=$pass openrat/openrat-cms

Be sure to replace the variables.
