Supported tags and respective
Make sure you have Docker installed and running for your platform. You can download Docker from https://www.docker.com.
Choose either single Plone instance or ZEO cluster.
It is inadvisable to use following configurations for production.
Standalone Plone Instance
Plone standalone instances are best suited for testing Plone and development.
Download and start the latest Plone 5 container, based on Debian.
$ docker run -p 8080:8080 plone
This image includes
EXPOSE 8080 (the Plone port), so standard container linking will make it automatically available to the linked containers. Now you can add a Plone Site at http://localhost:8080 - default Zope user and password are
Plone As ZEO Cluster
ZEO cluster are best suited for production setups, you will need a loadbalancer.
Start ZEO server in the background
$ docker run -d --name=zeo plone zeo
Start 2 Plone clients (also in the background)
$ docker run -d --name=instance1 --link=zeo -e ZEO_ADDRESS=zeo:8080 -p 8081:8080 plone $ docker run -d --name=instance2 --link=zeo -e ZEO_ADDRESS=zeo:8080 -p 8082:8080 plone
Start Plone In Debug Mode
You can also start Plone in debug mode (
fg) by running
$ docker run -p 8080:8080 plone fg
Debug mode may also be used with ZEO
$ docker run --link=zeo -e ZEO_ADDRESS=zeo:8080 -p 8080:8080 plone fg
