Docker nginx static website

Docker Nginx static website. How to use Docker to test a static website. I’m used Dockerfile to build and test as a local web development environment.

To create a directory for our Nginx Dockerfile

$ mkdir nginx
$ cd nginx
$ mkdir devopsroles
$ touch devopsroles/index.html
$ touch Dockerfile

The content our Dockerfile

FROM ubuntu:14.04
MAINTAINER PHAN VAN HUU <pvhuu90@gmail.com>, My blogs:devopsroles.com
RUN apt-get update
RUN apt-get -y -q install nginx
RUN mkdir -p /var/www/html/devopsroles
#ADD devopsroles/index.html /var/www/html/devopsroles/
ADD devopsroles.conf /etc/nginx/conf.d/
ADD nginx.conf /etc/nginx/nginx.conf
EXPOSE 80

The content of our devopsroles.conf file as below

server {
listen 0.0.0.0:80;
server_name _;
root /var/www/html/devopsroles;
index index.html index.htm;
access_log /var/log/nginx/default_access.log;
error_log /var/log/nginx/default_error.log;
}

File configure nginx.conf as below

user www-data;
worker_processes 4;
pid /run/nginx.pid;
daemon off;
events {
}
http {
sendfile on;
tcp_nopush on;
tcp_nodelay on;
keepalive_timeout 65;
types_hash_max_size 2048;
include /etc/nginx/mime.types;
default_type application/octet-stream;
access_log /var/log/nginx/access.log;
error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log;
gzip on;
gzip_disable "msie6";
include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;
}

To create our index.html file as below:

$ cat devopsroles/index.html

The content as below:

<head>
<title>Test website</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Hello! My name HuuPV</h1>
</body>

Building our new Nginx image

$ sudo docker build -t devopsroles/nginx:v2 .
$ sudo docker run -d -p 8080:80 --name devopsroles -v /home/huupv/project/nginx/devopsroles:/var/www/html/devopsroles:ro devopsroles/nginx:v2 nginx

The result, Docker Nginx static website

To use docker images command as below:

$ sudo docker images

The output devopsroles container as below:

[sudo] password for huupv: 
REPOSITORY TAG IMAGE ID CREATED SIZE
devopsroles/nginx v2 8598ffebf6ae 10 minutes ago 305.1 MB

To use docker ps command as below:

$ sudo docker ps

The output below

CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES
ebab6b61682b devopsroles/nginx:v2 "nginx" 8 minutes ago Up 8 minutes 0.0.0.0:8080->80/tcp devopsroles

To use curl command test docker Nginx static website

$ curl http://localhost:8080

Conclusion

To deploy simple static website use docker. Docker Nginx static website uses Dockerfile to build as the container. Thank you for reading the DevopsRoles page!
