NGINX Unit is a dynamic web application server, designed to run applications in multiple languages.

Supported tags and respective Dockerfile links

latest, 0.1.1 (docker/Dockerfile)

How to run

Run with docker-compose is rightly simple.

$ git clone
$ cd nginx-unit
$ docker-compose up

Socket file to connect unit server and json files to manage unit server are preserved.

$ sudo curl -X PUT -d @./json/wiki.json --unix-socket ./run/control.unit.sock http://localhost/ 


you can use docker command

$ docker run --name some-nginx-unit -d yousan/nginx-unit

Create root and run directories, mount those directories.

$ docker run --name some-nginx-unit -v /var/www:/www/root -v /var/run:/var/run:rw  -p 8200:8200 -p 8300:8300  yousan/nginx-unit

Send commands from Local

You can send curl requests from local host into docker container.

$ sudo curl -X PUT -d @./json/wiki.json --unix-socket ./run/control.unit.sock http://localhost/ 

Make sure directory (/var/run/) which have socket file (/var/run/control.sock) is bound.

memorandum for me

$ docker build --rm ./ -t yousan/nginx-unit && \
 docker-compose down && docker-compose up -d && \
 docker-compose exec nginx-unit curl -X PUT -d @/root/json/start.json --unix-socket /var/run/control.unit.sock http://localhost/ && \
 docker-compose exec nginx-unit /bin/bash
