Docker Image For BookStack

Build Status

Current Version: 0.24.1


In 0.12.2 we removed DB_PORT . You can now specify the port via DB_HOST like DB_HOST=mysql:3306


With Docker Compose is a Quickstart very easy. Run the following command:

docker-compose up

and after that open your Browser and go to http://localhost:8080 .


If you have any issues feel free to create an issue on GitHub.

How to use the Image without Docker compose

Networking changed in Docker v1.9, so you need to do one of the following steps.

Docker < v1.9

  1. MySQL Container:
docker run -d --name bookstack-mysql -p 3306:3306 -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=secret -e MYSQL_DATABASE=bookstack -e MYSQL_USER=bookstack -e MYSQL_PASSWORD=secret mysql:5.7.21
  1. BookStack Container:
docker run --name my-bookstack -d --link bookstack-mysql:mysql -p 8080:80 solidnerd/bookstack:0.24.1

Docker 1.9+

1.Create a shared network:

docker network create bookstack_nw`

2.MySQL container :

docker run -d --net bookstack_nw  \
-e MYSQL_DATABASE=bookstack \
-e MYSQL_USER=bookstack \
-e MYSQL_PASSWORD=secret \
 --name="bookstack_db" \

3.Create BookStack Container

docker run -d --net bookstack_nw  \
-e DB_HOST=bookstack_db:3306 \
-e DB_DATABASE=bookstack \
-e DB_USERNAME=bookstack \
-e DB_PASSWORD=secret \
-p 8080:80 \

After the steps you can visit http://localhost:8080 . You can login with username '' and password 'password'.


This is a fork of Kilhog/docker-bookstack. Kilhog did the intial work, but I want to go in a different direction.
