A Dockerfile that installs the latest wordpress, nginx, php-apc and php-fpm, and openssh. Based heavily on this.


  1. Tighten permissions up a bit maybe, may not be worth the effort. If anyone has suggestions please leave a comment at the official Docker Hub Registry repository or on this GitHub issue.
  2. Implement Docker Compose for a quicker setup.
  3. Clean up README.
  4. Requests? Just make a comment on this GitHub issue if there's anything you'd like added or changed.


The easiest way get up and running with this docker container is to pull the latest stable version from the Docker Hub Registry:

$ docker pull tlongren/docker-wordpress-nginx-ssh:latest

If you'd like to build the image yourself:

$ git clone
$ cd docker-wordpress-nginx-ssh
$ sudo docker build -t="tlongren/docker-wordpress-nginx-ssh" .


The -p 80:80 maps the internal docker port 80 to the outside port 80 of the host machine. The other -p sets up sshd on port 2222.

$ sudo docker run -p 80:80 -p 2222:22 --name docker-name -d tlongren/docker-wordpress-nginx-ssh:latest

Start your newly created container, named docker-name.

$ sudo docker start docker-name

After starting the container docker-wordpress-nginx-ssh checks to see if it has started and the port mapping is correct. This will also report the port mapping between the docker container and the host machine.

$ sudo docker ps>80/tcp, 3306/tcp,>22/tcp

You can then visit the following URL in a browser on your host machine to get started:

You can also SSH to your container on The default password is wordpress, and can also be found in .ssh-default-pass.

$ ssh -p 2222 wordpress@

Now that you've got SSH access, you can setup your FTP client the same way, or the SFTP Sublime Text plugin, for easy access to files.

You can view logs like this:

$ sudo docker logs docker-name
