WordPress on Dokku
A repository to help you setup WordPress on a Dokku server.
- A Dokku server. Tested on 0.7.2+
- The dokku-mysql plugin
This repository generates an app directory based on environment variables, as well as instructions for configuring your app on the Dokku server.
Plugins and Uploads will be stored on the host using persistent storage. Unless you do similar with themes, this setup will expect them to be distributed with the wordpress installation.
To use, run the following (and then read the instructions!):
# both APP_NAME and SERVER_NAME are required # export the server name (or ip) export SERVER_NAME=dokku.me # export the app name export APP_NAME=blog # generate the repository and follow the output directions make build
You can also specify a custom WordPress version:
export WORDPRESS_VERSION=3.7.16 make build APP_NAME=blog SERVER_NAME=dokku.me
Want a mostly unattended installation? You can also execute it with the
UNATTENDED_CREATION environment variable. You will only need to create the requisite persistent storage directories and push the repository. All configuration will be manually performed using the
dokku user against the configured
export UNATTENDED_CREATION=1 make build APP_NAME=blog SERVER_NAME=dokku.me
You can also destroy an existing wordpress installation:
make destroy APP_NAME=blog SERVER_NAME=dokku.me UNATTENDED_CREATION=1
