Docker install Apache Web Server


In this tutorial, I will use Docker to install an apache web server. How to set up Apache web server in a Docker container. Now, let go Docker install Apache Web Server.

Docker as a platform container. I will install Docker on Debian/Ubuntu and install Apache 2.4 container from Docker Hub.

Install Docker on Ubuntu here

Setting up the Apache Docker Container

For example, I will install Apache 2.4 container named devops-roles. Use an image called httpd:2.4 from Docker Hub. and detached from the current terminal.

Host port is 8080 to be redirected to guest port 80 on the container. I will serve a simple web page form /home/vagrant/website.

Docker install Apache web server

docker run -itd --name devops-roles -p 8080:80 -v /home/vagrant/website/:/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/ httpd:2.4
Docker install Apache Web Server

Check Docker Apache container running as command below

docker ps
docker ps command

To created index.html file inside /home/vagrant/website directory.

sudo vi /home/vagrant/website/index.html

The content as below

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <title>Learn Docker at</title>
    <h1>Learn Docker With</h1>   

Open web browser type server-ip:8080/index.html

The output terminal as below

check apache

Now, you can stop docker container apache

docker stop devops-roles

and remove it:

docker rm devops-roles

You can clean up and delete the image that was used in the container.

docker image remove httpd:2.4
