Running GRAV CMS on our appserver.io Docker container provides some advantages because some of the requirements that usually needs manual tweaks will be already set-up for you, like
So installing GRAV CMS in an appserver.io Docker container needs basically three steps.
BTW: appserver.io website and documentation page run's on GRAV CMS. THANKS GRAV CMS team!!!
Download and install Docker for your system.
If you already have a running Docker installation, you can skip this step and proceed with Step 2.
If you already have a webserver running that listens either to one of the ports
443you'll also have to stop it temporarly.
We need a appserver.io container that runs the GRAV CMS instance. Again, open your commandline, if you've already closed it, and execute the following command
MacBook-Pro:~ docker run -d \ -p127.0.0.1:80:80 \ -p127.0.0.1:443:443 \ -v /Users/wagnert/Workspace:/root/Workspace \ --name appserver-1.1.4-magento \ appserver/dist:1.1.4
This downlaods the latest stable appserver.io image and starts a container with the webserver and
PHP-FPM listening to the ports
Beside the possiblity to copy the files to the webserver root directory, appserver.io also supports a PHAR based deployment. This allows us to deploy GRAV CMS by downloading the sources - including all composer dependencies - as a PHAR archive and copy it to the deployment directory inside the Docker container. To do this, execute the following lines on the commandline
MacBook-Pro:~ docker exec appserver-1.1.4-grav bash -c \ "wget http://apps.appserver.io/grav/grav-latest.phar \ -O /opt/appserver/deploy/grav-latest.phar" MacBook-Pro:~ docker exec appserver-1.1.4-grav bash -c \ "touch /opt/appserver/deploy/grav-latest.phar.dodeploy"
Now wait until appserver.io has deployed the GRAV CMS sources. To check if everything is ready, execute the following command several times and check the output
MacBook-Pro:~ wagnert$ docker exec appserver-1.1.4-grav bash -c "ls -l /opt/appserver/deploy" total 195588 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4384 Jun 9 07:21 README.md -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 200269499 Jun 9 0017 grav-latest.phar -rw-rw-r-- 1 root root 44 Jun 10 15:23 grav-latest.phar.deployed
When the file
grav-latest.phar.deploying changed to
grav-latest.phar.deployed GRAV CMS
has successfully been deployed.
The GRAV CMS deployment process could take up to 1 minute, depending on your hardware!
Finally, user your browser to open the GRAV CMS frontend or backend and create the admin user.
That's it - have fun!
