Docker for Building a Local Development Environment

This project provides a basic Docker setup, for building a local development environment for Zend Expressive, and other PHP, application development.

Why?

Why? Good question. But easy to answer. The intent is to provide a starting point for developers to get up and running quickly, using Docker, to build a local development environment. If you’d like much more background as to why, checkout this tutorial on Master Zend Framework. It lays out, much more comprehensively, the reasons why this is a good thing to do.

Installation

To get up and running, after cloning the repository:

  1. Install Docker. If you’re running a Linux distribution, use its package manager. If you’re using either macOS or Windows, download the respective Docker package installers: Docker for Mac or Docker for Windows.

  2. Add the cloned files to the root of a Zend Expressive (or other PHP) project.

  3. In docker/nginx/default.conf change the default document root setting, root /PATH/TO/YOUR/DOCUMENT/ROOT;, to suit your installation. More than likely, there will be a public/ directory in your source. So change the setting to be root /var/www/html/public;.

  4. Build the configuration by running: docker-compose up -d.

Check That Everything Is Working

To check that the build is working, run docker-compose ps. This should give you output similar to the below.

               Name                             Command             State               Ports
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
dockerforlocaldevelopment_mysql_1     docker-entrypoint.sh mysqld   Up      3306/tcp
dockerforlocaldevelopment_nginx_1     nginx -g daemon off;          Up      443/tcp, 0.0.0.0:8080->80/tcp
dockerforlocaldevelopment_php_1       php-fpm                       Up      9000/tcp
dockerforlocaldevelopment_testing_1   php-fpm                       Up      9000/tcp

If you’d like to see more detailed information, check the log file by running docker-compose logs. To check that the files are inside the container, run the following command, substituting dockerforlocaldevelopment to match your directory name:

docker exec -it dockerforlocaldevelopment_nginx_1 ls -lahrt /var/www/html
