Docker - a typical Sea Scum

I hope you all familiar with Docker? =)))

Tbh docker is a bit complicated for me still, but I will give it a hard try now, because, mastering containers can lead to mastering orchestration and all that stuff. And there is still a lot of potential in scaling and integrating everywhere you could.

So first of all thx Linux - it's native there! Windows and Macs are using virtualisation. You can pull all kind of containers from hub. And compose yours, then commit them and push, or make some stacks.

Let's try make some Wordpress site out of 1 container - and then put there some content - wrap it up - push to our hub or even Azure container service. And later pickit and launch on different docker and see all content that was there b4 =P

It's also would be nice to have some ssl from Let'sEncrypt at least - because nowdays no ssl suck like hell ^_^

So - doing Wp is quite easy, but either I'm blind or nobody puts mySql or Maria along... Here are some docker shit.

compose and Dockerfile - it's like installer and config

Docker got a really cute interface 

You can also just type that in that fancy black screen to pull image from hub and give it some settings.



docker run -d -p 80:80 -v /local/folder:/var/www/wp-content 
-e "DB_HOST=db" 
-e "DB_NAME=wordpress" 
-e "DB_USER=wp" 
-e "DB_PASSWORD=secret" 
-e "FS_METHOD=direct" 


And we got some containers here - Jenkins is ok at ports...

Wordpress is at 80 but say we got no DB connect


and mySql  alon... but wait we need Maria?

we keep on investigating


So ... Main point is that container can be adjusted, but you have to either get a vault ( like an hdd external drive for your data) or commit changes to docker image ... Scratch that wordpress for a while, and check Jenkins and patches to do the job.

After the commit you should do docker push to push it to the cloud. So basically you can do a nice, tuned docker container with Jenkins and then commit/push to store it in your hub.docker - and then... it will be like a reusable instance that you can bring up anywhere using docker and get all tuned instance of linux and Jenkins ready to go with all your preconfigured stuff... That's sound really awesome to me !!! 

So let's check it out on Azure  -_-


I did commit and push - so let's try to delete and pull
