Local install using Docker
OSPOS can be deployed using Docker on Linux, Mac, and Windows. Locally or on a host (server). This setup dramatically reduces the number of possible issues as all setup is now done in a Dockerfile. Docker runs natively on Mac and Linux. Windows requires WSL2 to be installed. Please refer to the Docker documentation for instructions on how to set it up on your platform.
Be aware that this setup is not suited for production usage! Change the default passwords in the compose file before exposing the containers publicly.
Start the containers using the following command
Nginx install using Docker
Since OSPOS version
3.3.0 the Docker installation offers a reverse proxy based on Nginx with a Let's Encrypt TLS certificate termination (aka HTTPS connection).
Let's Encrypt is a free certificate issuer, requiring a special installation that this Docker installation would take care of for you.
Any Let's Encrypt TLS certificate renewal will be managed automatically, therefore there is no need to worry about those details.
Before starting your installation, you should edit the
docker/.env file and configure it to contain the correct MySQL/MariaDB and phpMyAdmin passwords (don't use the defaults!).
You will also need to register to Let's Encrypt. Configure your host domain name and Let's Encrypt email address in the
STAGING needs to be set to
0 when you are confident your configuration is correct so that Let's Encrypt will issue a final proper TLS certificate.
Follow local install steps, but instead use
Do not use below command on live deployments unless you want to tear everything down. All your disk content will be wiped!
