Gitter

LaraDock helps you run your Laravel App on Docker real quick.
It's like Laravel Homestead but for Docker instead of Vagrant.

With LaraDock, use Docker first and learn about it later.


## Contents

Intro

LaraDock strives to make the development experience easier. It contains pre-packaged Docker Images that provides you a wonderful development environment without requiring you to install PHP, NGINX, MySQL, REDIS, and any other software on your local machine.

Usage Overview:

Let's see how easy it is to install NGINX, PHP, Composer, MySQL and Redis. Then run Laravel.

  1. Get LaraDock inside your Laravel project:

`git clone https://github.com/LaraDock/laradock.git`. 2. Enter the laradock folder and run only these Containers:
`docker-compose up -d nginx mysql redis` 3. Open your `.env` file and set `DB_HOST` to `mysql` and `REDIS_HOST` to `redis`. 4. Open your browser and visit the localhost: `http://localdock`

Features

  • Easy switch between PHP versions: 7.0, 5.6, 5.5...
  • Choose your favorite database engine: MySQL, Postgres, MariaDB...
  • Run your own combination of software: Memcached, HHVM, Beanstalkd...
  • Every software runs on a separate container: PHP-FPM, NGINX, PHP-CLI...
  • Easy to customize any container, with simple edit to the dockerfile.
  • All Images extends from an official base Image. (Trusted base Images).
  • Pre-configured Nginx for Laravel.
  • Easy to apply configurations inside containers.
  • Clean and well structured Dockerfiles (dockerfile).
  • Latest version of the Docker Compose file (docker-compose).
  • Everything is visible and editable.
  • Fast Images Builds.
  • More to come every week..

Supported Software (Containers)

  • Database Engines:
    • MySQL
    • PostgreSQL
    • MariaDB
    • MongoDB
    • Neo4j
  • Cache Engines:
    • Redis

If you can't find your Software, build it yourself and add it to this list. Contributions are welcomed :)

What is Docker?

Docker is an open-source project that automates the deployment of applications inside software containers, by providing an additional layer of abstraction and automation of operating-system-level virtualization on Linux, Mac OS and Windows.

What is Laravel?

Seriously!!!

Why Docker not Vagrant!?

Vagrant creates Virtual Machines in minutes while Docker creates Virtual Containers in seconds.

Instead of providing a full Virtual Machines, like you get with Vagrant, Docker provides you lightweight Virtual Containers, that share the same kernel and allow to safely execute independent processes.

In addition to the speed, Docker gives tons of features that cannot be achieved with Vagrant.

Most importantly Docker can run on Development and on Production (same environment everywhere). While Vagrant is designed for Development only, (so you have to re-provision your server on Production every time).

LaraDock VS Homestead

LaraDock and Homestead both gives you a complete virtual development environments. (Without the need to install and configure every single software on your own Operating System).

  • Homestead is a tool that controls Vagrant for you (using Homestead special commands). And Vagrant manages your Virtual Machine.

  • LaraDock is a tool that controls Docker for you (using Docker & Docker Compose official commands). And Docker manages your Virtual Containers.

Running a virtual Container is much faster than running a full virtual Machine. Thus LaraDock is much faster than Homestead.

Demo Video

What's better than a Demo Video:

  • LaraDock v4.* (Coming soon..)
  • LaraDock v2.2
  • LaraDock v0.3
  • LaraDock v0.1

Requirements

Installation

1 - Clone the LaraDock repository:

A) If you already have a Laravel project, clone this repository on your Laravel root directory:

git submodule add https://github.com/LaraDock/laradock.git

If you are not already using Git for your Laravel project, you can use git clone instead of git submodule.

B) If you don't have a Laravel project, and you want to install Laravel from Docker, clone this repo anywhere on your machine:

git clone https://github.com/LaraDock/laradock.git

Usage

Read Before starting:

If you are using Docker Toolbox (VM), do one of the following:

If you are using Docker Native (For Mac/Windows) or even for Linux, continue this documentation normally since LaraDock v4 and above is just for that.



1 - Run Containers: *(Make sure you are in the `laradock` folder before running the `docker-compose` commands).*

Example: Running NGINX and MySQL:

docker-compose up -d  nginx mysql

You can select your own combination of Containers form the list below:

nginx, hhvm, php-fpm, mysql, redis, postgres, mariadb, neo4j, mongo, apache2, caddy, memcached, beanstalkd, beanstalkd-console, rabbitmq, workspace, phpmyadmin, aerospike, pgadmin, elasticsearch.

Note: workspace and php-fpm will run automatically in most of the cases, so no need to specify them in the up command.


2 - Enter the Workspace container, to execute commands like (Artisan, Composer, PHPUnit, Gulp, ...).
docker-compose exec workspace bash


2a - Alternatively, Windows Powershell users can execute the following command to enter a running container. ```bash docker exec -it {container-id} bash ```
Add `--user=laradock` (example `docker-compose exec --user=laradock workspace bash`) to have files created as your host's user. (you can change the PUID (User id) and PGID (group id) variables from the `docker-compose.yml`).
3 - Edit the Laravel configurations.

If you don't have a Laravel project installed yet, see How to Install Laravel in a Docker Container.

Open your Laravel's .env file and set the DB_HOST to your mysql:

DB_HOST=mysql

4 - Open your browser and visit your localhost address (`http://localhost/`).
**Debugging**: if you are facing any problem here check the [Debugging](#debugging) section.

If you need a special support. Contact me, more details in the Help & Questions section.


## Documentation

List current running Containers

docker ps

You can also use the this command if you want to see only this project containers:

docker-compose ps

### Close all running Containers ```bash docker-compose stop ```

To stop single container do:

docker-compose stop {container-name}

### Delete all existing Containers ```bash docker-compose down ```

Note: Careful with this command as it will delete your Data Volume Container as well. (if you want to keep your Database data than you should stop each container by itself as follow):


### Enter a Container (SSH into a running Container)

1 - first list the current running containers with docker ps

2 - enter any container using:

docker-compose exec {container-name} bash

Example: enter MySQL container

docker-compose exec mysql bash

3 - to exit a container, type exit.


### Edit default container configuration Open the `docker-compose.yml` and change anything you want.

Examples:

Change MySQL Database Name:

  environment:
    MYSQL_DATABASE: laradock

Change Redis defaut port to 1111:

  ports:
    - "1111:6379"

### Edit a Docker Image

1 - Find the dockerfile of the image you want to edit,
example for mysql it will be mysql/Dockerfile.

2 - Edit the file the way you want.

3 - Re-build the container:

docker-compose build mysql

More info on Containers rebuilding here.


### Build/Re-build Containers

If you do any change to any dockerfile make sure you run this command, for the changes to take effect:

docker-compose build

Optionally you can specify which container to rebuild (instead of rebuilding all the containers):

docker-compose build {container-name}

You might use the --no-cache option if you want full rebuilding (docker-compose build --no-cache {container-name}).


### Add more Software (Docker Images)

To add an image (software), just edit the docker-compose.yml and add your container details, to do so you need to be familiar with the docker compose file syntax.


### View the Log files The Nginx Log file is stored in the `logs/nginx` directory.

However to view the logs of all the other containers (MySQL, PHP-FPM,...) you can run this:

docker logs {container-name}

Install Laravel from a Docker Container

1 - First you need to enter the Workspace Container.

2 - Install Laravel.

Example using Composer

composer create-project laravel/laravel my-cool-app "5.2.*"

We recommend using composer create-project instead of the Laravel installer, to install Laravel.

For more about the Laravel installation click here.

3 - Edit docker-compose.yml to Map the new application path:

By default LaraDock assumes the Laravel application is living in the parent directory of the laradock folder.

Since the new Laravel application is in the my-cool-app folder, we need to replace ../:/var/www/laravel with ../my-cool-app/:/var/www/laravel, as follow:

    application:
        build: ./application
        volumes:
            - ../my-cool-app/:/var/www/laravel

4 - Go to that folder and start working..

cd my-cool-app

5 - Go back to the laraDock installation steps to see how to edit the .env file.


### Run Artisan Commands

You can run artisan commands and many other Terminal commands from the Workspace container.

1 - Make sure you have the workspace container running.

docker-compose up -d workspace // ..and all your other containers

2 - Find the Workspace container name:

docker-compose ps

3 - Enter the Workspace container:

docker-compose exec workspace bash

Add --user=laradock (example docker-compose exec --user=laradock workspace bash) to have files created as your host's user.

4 - Run anything you want :)

php artisan
Composer update
phpunit

### Use Redis

1 - First make sure you run the Redis Container (redis) with the docker-compose up command.

docker-compose up -d redis

2 - Open your Laravel's .env file and set the REDIS_HOST to redis

REDIS_HOST=redis

If you don't find the REDIS_HOST variable in your .env file. Go to the database config file config/database.php and replace the default 127.0.0.1 IP with redis for Redis like this:

'redis' => [
    'cluster' => false,
    'default' => [
        'host'     => 'redis',
        'port'     => 6379,
        'database' => 0,
    ],
],

3 - To enable Redis Caching and/or for Sessions Management. Also from the .env file set CACHE_DRIVER and SESSION_DRIVER to redis instead of the default file.

CACHE_DRIVER=redis
SESSION_DRIVER=redis

4 - Finally make sure you have the predis/predis package (~1.0) installed via Composer:

composer require predis/predis:^1.0

5 - You can manually test it from Laravel with this code:

\Cache::store('redis')->put('LaraDock', 'Awesome', 10);

### Use Mongo

1 - First install mongo in the Workspace and the PHP-FPM Containers:
a) open the docker-compose.yml file
b) search for the INSTALL_MONGO argument under the Workspace Container
c) set it to true
d) search for the INSTALL_MONGO argument under the PHP-FPM Container
e) set it to true

It should be like this:

    workspace:
        build:
            context: ./workspace
            args:
                - INSTALL_MONGO=true
    ...
    php-fpm:
        build:
            context: ./php-fpm
            args:
                - INSTALL_MONGO=true
    ...

2 - Re-build the containers docker-compose build workspace php-fpm

3 - Run the MongoDB Container (mongo) with the docker-compose up command.

docker-compose up -d mongo

4 - Add the MongoDB configurations to the config/database.php config file:

'connections' => [

    'mongodb' => [
        'driver'   => 'mongodb',
        'host'     => env('DB_HOST', 'localhost'),
        'port'     => env('DB_PORT', 27017),
        'database' => env('DB_DATABASE', 'database'),
        'username' => '',
        'password' => '',
        'options'  => [
            'database' => '',
        ]
    ],

	// ...

],

5 - Open your Laravel's .env file and update the following variables:

  • set the DB_HOST to your mongo.
  • set the DB_PORT to 27017.
  • set the DB_DATABASE to database.

6 - Finally make sure you have the jenssegers/mongodb package installed via Composer and its Service Provider is added.

composer require jenssegers/mongodb

More details about this here.

7 - Test it:

  • First let your Models extend from the Mongo Eloquent Model. Check the documentation.
  • Enter the Workspace Container.
  • Migrate the Database php artisan migrate.

### Use phpMyAdmin

1 - Run the phpMyAdmin Container (phpmyadmin) with the docker-compose up command. Example:

# use with mysql
docker-compose up -d mysql phpmyadmin

# use with mariadb
docker-compose up -d mariadb phpmyadmin

2 - Open your browser and visit the localhost on port 8080: http://localhost:8080


### Use pgAdmin

1 - Run the pgAdmin Container (pgadmin) with the docker-compose up command. Example:

docker-compose up -d postgres pgadmin

2 - Open your browser and visit the localhost on port 5050: http://localhost:5050


### Use ElasticSearch

1 - Run the ElasticSearch Container (elasticsearch) with the docker-compose up command. Example:

docker-compose up -d elasticsearch

2 - Open your browser and visit the localhost on port 9200: http://localhost:9200


Install PHP Extensions

Before installing PHP extensions, you have to decide whether you need for the FPM or CLI because each lives on a different container, if you need it for both you have to edit both containers.

The PHP-FPM extensions should be installed in php-fpm/Dockerfile-XX. (replace XX with your default PHP version number).
The PHP-CLI extensions should be installed in workspace/Dockerfile.


### Change the (PHP-FPM) Version By default **PHP-FPM 7.0** is running.

The PHP-FPM is responsible of serving your application code, you don't have to change the PHP-CLI version if you are planing to run your application on different PHP-FPM version.

A) Switch from PHP 7.0 to PHP 5.6

1 - Open the docker-compose.yml.

2 - Search for Dockerfile-70 in the PHP container section.

3 - Change the version number, by replacing Dockerfile-70 with Dockerfile-56, like this:

php-fpm:
    build:
        context: ./php-fpm
        dockerfile: Dockerfile-70

4 - Finally rebuild the container

docker-compose build php

For more details about the PHP base image, visit the official PHP docker images.

B) Switch from PHP 7.0 or 5.6 to PHP 5.5

We do not natively support PHP 5.5 anymore, but you can get it in few steps:

1 - Clone https://github.com/LaraDock/php-fpm.

3 - Rename Dockerfile-56 to Dockerfile-55.

3 - Edit the file FROM php:5.6-fpm to FROM php:5.5-fpm.

4 - Build an image from Dockerfile-55.

5 - Open the docker-compose.yml file.

6 - Point php-fpm to your Dockerfile-55 file.


### Change the PHP-CLI Version By default **PHP-CLI 7.0** is running.

Note: it's not very essential to edit the PHP-CLI verion. The PHP-CLI is only used for the Artisan Commands & Composer. It doesn't serve your Application code, this is the PHP-FPM job.

The PHP-CLI is installed in the Workspace container. To change the PHP-CLI version you need to edit the workspace/Dockerfile.

Right now you have to manually edit the Dockerfile or create a new one like it's done for the PHP-FPM. (consider contributing).


### Install xDebug

1 - First install xDebug in the Workspace and the PHP-FPM Containers:
a) open the docker-compose.yml file
b) search for the INSTALL_XDEBUG argument under the Workspace Container
c) set it to true
d) search for the INSTALL_XDEBUG argument under the PHP-FPM Container
e) set it to true

It should be like this:

    workspace:
        build:
            context: ./workspace
            args:
                - INSTALL_XDEBUG=true
    ...
    php-fpm:
        build:
            context: ./php-fpm
            args:
                - INSTALL_XDEBUG=true
    ...

2 - Re-build the containers docker-compose build workspace php-fpm

For information on how to configure xDebug with your IDE and work it out, check this Repository.


### Start/Stop xDebug:

By installing xDebug, you are enabling it to run on startup by default.

To controll the behavior of xDebug (in the php-fpm Container), you can run the following commands from the LaraDock root folder:

  • Stop xDebug from running by default: ./xdebugPhpFpm stop.
  • Start xDebug by default: ./xdebugPhpFpm start.
  • See the status: ./xdebugPhpFpm status.


### Setup Laravel and Docker on Digital Ocean

####Full Giude Here



### Use custom Domain (instead of the Docker IP)

Assuming your custom domain is laravel.dev

1 - Open your /etc/hosts file and map your localhost address 127.0.0.1 to the laravel.dev domain, by adding the following:

127.0.0.1    laravel.dev

2 - Open your browser and visit {http://laravel.dev}

Optionally you can define the server name in the nginx config file, like this:

server_name laravel.dev;

### Enable Global Composer Build Install

Enabling Global Composer Install during the build for the container allows you to get your composer requirements installed and available in the container after the build is done.

1 - open the docker-compose.yml file

2 - search for the COMPOSER_GLOBAL_INSTALL argument under the Workspace Container and set it to true

It should be like this:

    workspace:
        build:
            context: ./workspace
            args:
                - COMPOSER_GLOBAL_INSTALL=true
    ...

3 - now add your dependencies to workspace/composer.json

4 - rebuild the Workspace Container docker-compose build workspace


### Install Prestissimo

Prestissimo is a plugin for composer which enables parallel install functionality.

1 - Enable Running Global Composer Install during the Build:

Click on this Enable Global Composer Build Install and do steps 1 and 2 only then continue here.

2 - Add prestissimo as requirement in Composer:

a - now open the workspace/composer.json file

b - add "hirak/prestissimo": "^0.3" as requirement

c - rebuild the Workspace Container docker-compose build workspace


### Install Node + NVM

To install NVM and NodeJS in the Workspace container

1 - Open the docker-compose.yml file

2 - Search for the INSTALL_NODE argument under the Workspace Container and set it to true

It should be like this:

    workspace:
        build:
            context: ./workspace
            args:
                - INSTALL_NODE=true
    ...

3 - Re-build the container docker-compose build workspace


### Install Aerospike extension

1 - First install aerospike in the Workspace and the PHP-FPM Containers:
a) open the docker-compose.yml file
b) search for the INSTALL_AEROSPIKE_EXTENSION argument under the Workspace Container
c) set it to true
d) search for the INSTALL_AEROSPIKE_EXTENSION argument under the PHP-FPM Container
e) set it to true

It should be like this:

    workspace:
        build:
            context: ./workspace
            args:
                - INSTALL_AEROSPIKE_EXTENSION=true
    ...
    php-fpm:
        build:
            context: ./php-fpm
            args:
                - INSTALL_AEROSPIKE_EXTENSION=true
    ...

2 - Re-build the containers docker-compose build workspace php-fpm


### Debugging

Here's a list of the common problems you might face, and the possible solutions.

I see a blank (white) page instead of the Laravel 'Welcome' page!

Run the following command from the Laravel root directory:

sudo chmod -R 777 storage bootstrap/cache

I see "Welcome to nginx" instead of the Laravel App!

Use http://127.0.0.1 instead of http://localhost in your browser.

I see an error message containing address already in use

Make sure the ports for the services that you are trying to run (80, 3306, etc.) are not being used already by other programs, such as a built in apache/httpd service or other development tools you have installed.

I get Nginx error 404 Not Found on Windows.

  1. Go to docker Settings on your Windows machine.
  2. Click on the Shared Drives tab and check the drive that contains your project files.
  3. Enter your windows username and password.
  4. Go to the reset tab and click restart docker.

### Upgrading LaraDock

Moving from Docker Toolbox (VirtualBox) to Docker Native (for Mac/Windows). Requires upgrading LaraDock from v3.* to v4.*:

  1. Stop the docker vm docker-machine stop {default}
  2. Install Docker for Mac or Windows.
  3. Upgrade LaraDock to v4.*.* (git pull origin master)
  4. Use LaraDock as you used to do: docker-compose up -d nginx mysql.

Note: If you face any problem with the last step above: rebuild all your containers docker-compose build --no-cache "Warnning Containers Data might be lost!"
