WordPress Docker Container

Lightweight WordPress container with Nginx 1.18 & PHP-FPM 7.3 based on Alpine Linux.

WordPress version currently installed: 5.5.1

  • Used in production for my own sites, making it stable, tested and up-to-date
  • Optimized for 100 concurrent users
  • Optimized to only use resources when there's traffic (by using PHP-FPM's ondemand PM)
  • Best to be used with Amazon Cloudfront as SSL terminator and CDN
  • Built on the lightweight Alpine Linux distribution
  • Small Docker image size (+/-50MB)
  • Uses PHP 7.3 for better performance, lower cpu usage & memory footprint
  • Can safely be updated without losing data
  • Fully configurable because wp-config.php uses the environment variables you can pass as an argument to the container
