The automated build docker Wordpress blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) image “linuxconfig/wordpress” can be used to instantly deploy wordpress CMS on your docker hosts.


The wordpress CMS application runs on Debian GNU/Linux system featuring Apache web server, MariaDB ( MySQL ), database and PHP5. A new docker container based on “linuxconfig/wordpress” will expose port 80 which can be linked to the docker host port for an immediate Wordpress web site access.

Below command will download and create a new docker container called wordpress and link local host system port 80 with container's exposed port 80.
# docker run -d --name=wordpress -p 80:80 linuxconfig/wordpress


Once you deploy the wordpress docker container you can immediately access it by using your browser and navigating to http://localhost and start wordpress installation by using the information provided above.
