Using Docker for development¶
Roadiz standard edition is shipped with a
docker-compose example environment ready
to use for development. Docker on Linux will provide awesome performances and a production-like environment
without bloating your development machine. Performances won’t be as good on macOS or Windows hosts,
but it will prevent installing singled versioned PHP and MySQL directly on your computer.
.env file and configure it according to your host machine (you can copy it from
if it does not exist).
# Build PHP image docker-compose build; # Create and start containers docker-compose up -d;
Then your website will be available at
For linux users, where Docker is running natively (without underlying virtualization),
pay attention that PHP is running with www-data user. You must update your
.env file to
reflect your local user UID during image build.
# Type id command in your favorite terminal app id # It should output something like # uid=1000(toto)
So use the same uid in your .env file before starting and building your Docker image.
