This image is the Traefik base. It comes from alpine-monit.


docker build -t rawmind/alpine-traefik:<version> .



This image runs Traefik with monit. It is started with traefik user/group with 10001 uid/gid.

Besides, you can customize the configuration in several ways:

Custom Configuration

Traefik is installed under /opt/traefik and make use of /opt/traefik/etc/traefik.toml and /opt/traefik/etc/rules.toml.

You can edit or overwrite this files in order to customize your own configuration or certificates.

You could also include FROM rawmind/alpine-traefik at the top of your Dockerfile, and add your custom config.

SSL Configuration

Added SSL configuration. Set TRAEFIK_HTTPS_ENABLE="< true || only >" to enable it.

SSL certificates are located by default in /opt/traefik/certs. You need to provide .key AND .crt files to that directory, in order Traefik gets automatically configured with ssl.

If you put more that one key/crt files in the certs directory, Traefik gets sni enabled and configured. You also could map you cert storage volume to Traefik and mount it in $TRAEFIK_SSL_PATH value.

You could also include FROM rawmind/alpine-traefik at the top of your Dockerfile, and add your custom ssl files.

If you need to let legacy tls versions connect to traefik then setting TRAEFIK_HTTPS_MIN_TLS will set minVersion on the https Entrypoint. See the Traefik documentation for allowed values. Default is VersionTLS12.

Let's Encrypt Configuration

If you enable SSL configuration, you could enable Traefik Let's Encrypt support as well (ACME). To do it, set TRAEFIK_ACME_ENABLE="true".


If you are running it in rancher, you could use in 2 ways:

  • Traefik built rancher integration. Add env TRAEFIK_RANCHER_ENABLE=true
  • You could run rancher-traefik as a sidekick to get dynamic configuration.


See rancher-example, that run a Traefik lb in all infrastructure servers and publish ${TRAEFIK_HTTP_PORT}, ${TRAEFIK_HTTPS_PORT} and ${TRAEFIK_ADMIN_PORT} throught them.


Add sni automation to the Traefik.
