Through the utilisation of Docker container technology, it is possible to effortlessly and expeditiously deploy programmes and packages on any operating system. It takes a significant amount of time to manually install WordPress. With the help of docker, we are able to streamline the installation procedure.

Follow the steps below.

1. Install the docker using below commands

yum install docker -y
systemctl start docker

2. Verify the installation with the below test program

where the parameters;

MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD = Database password
MYSQL_DATABASE = Database name
--name wordpressdb = Container name
-v "$PWD/database": = Set up a data directory linked to container storage.

4. Install wordpress container using below commands:

docker pull wordpress
docker run -e WORDPRESS_DB_USER=root -e WORDPRESS_DB_PASSWORD=<password> --name wordpress --link wordpressdb:mysql -p 80:80 -v "$PWD/html":/var/www/html -d wordpress

where the parameters;

-v “$PWD/html”:/var/www/html = Set up the WordPress files accessible from outside the container.

-d = To run the container in the background

WordPress = Install the package downloaded earlier with the docker pull command.
