What is PHPDocker.io?

PHPDocker.io is a tool that will help you build a typical PHP development environment based on Docker with just a few clicks. It supports provisioning of the usual services (MySQL/MariaDB, Redis, Elasticsearch...), with more to come. PHP 7.1 is supported, as well as 7.0 and 5.6.

Why Docker? Containers are typically faster to set up, less prone to provisioning errors (pre-setup images), and last but not least, web app deployment is going the way of the container. PHP applications work really well on Docker, and, as applications are increasingly set up for Docker, so should our development environments.


PHP 7.3 and XDebug
January 29th, 2019

Update: xdebug is again available for php 7.3.

Due to an issue with opcache in PHP 7.3.0 and 7.3.1 (the latter is the current version offered by our base images), XDebug is currently crashing php-fpm.

June updates: Clickhouse
June 29th, 2017

June has been pretty quiet. Mostly, under-the-hood improvements like optimisations to the generated docker-compose file for larger projects (thanks to z1r0-).

A new, interesting feature is Clickhouse support, kindly contributed by Andrey Bolonin. I'm not familiar with Clickhouse, a SQL-esque data store for larger, if not huge, datasets for analysis by Yandex, but it's intriguing.
