Docker Notes

To launch this on a webserver in a docker container with docker-letsencrypt-nginx-proxy-companion:

With a volume:

Run this in the root of this git repo:

docker run -d \
	   --name website_ventmob \
	   -v "$PWD/public/":/app/ \
	   -e \
           -e \
           -e \

Without a volume:

  1. Build the Dockerfile using:

    docker build -t my-httpd .

               --name website_ventmob \


  • By default a .htaccess is included for those who do not have access to apache config files. If you do have access then you should make these changes in the appropriate apache configuration. If you do want to use the .htaccess, make sure apache has AllowOverride set appropriately.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
