In this tutorial I will share my WordPress on docker setup. The stack includes WordPress (with mSMTP), MariaDB, Adminer, Backup and Traefik support.
WordPress on docker Setup
- clone the repo https://github.com/RaveMaker/docker-wordpress
- edit .env file:
11# Should be the same as folder
# VirtualHost address
# Database credentials
# Time Zone
- create msmtp/msmtprc from provided msmtprc.example
- change permissions and ownership of msmtprc file:
2chown 33:33 msmtprc
chmod 600 msmtprc
The stack is divided into two networks, backend and frontend.
the idea behind splitting the stack into two networks is to block the access of the reverse proxy to the backend containers.
both networks are unique and will be named with stackname_networname such as:
after running docker-compose up you need to connect your reverse proxy to your new frontend network: you can do that manually using:
- docker network connect docker-wordpress_frontend PROXY_CONTAINER_NAME
if you are using my Traefik setup there is a ‘connect.sh’ script included that will connect all your frontend networks to your Traefik container.
