This guide is not complete, I’m still working upon this as the instructions need to be modified to run in production environment. This guide needs a lot of Improvement.
Want to Run Ghost inside Docker?
Let’s get started:
We’re using the following image:
However, the image needs a custom docker-file for docker-compose to work in Production environment or else You’d end up with a fresh install every time you try to upgrade it.
However, Please bear in mind that You can not use the Ghost-CLI tool because … reasons.
Use this Dockerfile:
# by default, the Ghost image will use SQLite (and thus requires no separate database container) # we have used MySQL here merely for demonstration purposes (especially environment-variable-based configuration) version: '3.1' services: ghost: image: ghost:1-alpine restart: always ports: - 8080:2368 environment: # see https://docs.ghost.org/docs/config#section-running-ghost-with-config-env-variables database__client: mysql database__connection__host: db database__connection__user: root database__connection__password: example database__connection__database: ghost db: image: mysql:5.7 restart: always environment: MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD: example
This configuration file is not ready for production use. I still need to mount volumes to a Persistent storage outside the docker container.
