Dockerfile/docker-compose fixes #407

merged 2 commits into from Dec 8, 2020

@conor-f conor-f commented Oct 26, 2020

I recently tried to install writefreely using my docker-compose setup that I use for managing all self hosted services I'm running. It took a lot of work to get the docker-compose setup working for writefreely but this PR should make things significantly easier.

This is the workflow of this PR to install writefreely with docker-compose:

  • Take the docker-compose.yml that is modified in this PR, and put it in a directory.
  • Run:
touch config.ini
sudo chown root:root config.ini
sudo chmod 777 config.ini
- Note that this is definitely not the right thing to do and permissions could certainly be tighter. If anyone has suggestions for me I'm more than willing to update this PR.
  • Then this sequence of commands:
sudo docker-compose up -d writefreely-db
sudo docker-compose run writefreely-web --config
sudo docker-compose run writefreely-web --gen-keys
vim config.ini <-- Only needed if you want to make other modifications
sudo docker-compose up -d writefreely-web

I know this is kind of messy still but this is working now so let me know any changes you'd like to see to get this merged. This should (mostly) solve #139 #323 and #357

Updates versions and uses maria DB instead of sqlite in the
docker-compose. Also fixes things related to networks, generating
config, etc.

Thanks for submitting this, @conor-f! It would be great to get these Docker issues fixed.

I won't be able to help much since this isn't my area of expertise, but maybe @shleeable or @kaiyou could review?

I just ran into the same issue. Changes look good to me.

Though I would make one suggestion, wouldn't it be easier to have a simple sqlite example instead of spinning up a mariadb image too?

Thanks for taking a look, @finn-ball!

Just to be sure @conor-f, which issues in particular should be completely closed when we merge this?

I would close the two issues and one PR I linked in the original comment.

There are improvements that could be made to this, but this PR will allow people to just pull the docker-compose.yml and get a working instance with significantly less hardship.

Perfect, that'll work! Merging this now.

@conor-f: please update the pr to do a

sudo chmod 644 config.ini 

It should work with 644, that should be enough for the writefreely process to access.
