amazee.io Alpine 7 Dockerfile with nginx installed, based on the official openresty Alpine images at (https://hub.docker.com/r/openresty/openresty/).
This Dockerfile is intended to be used as base for any webservers within amazee.io. By default the nginx only serves static files. If you need php have a look at the php-fpm image and use nginx and php-fpm in tandem.
amazee.io & OpenShift adaptions¶
This image is prepared to be used on amazee.io which leverages OpenShift. There are therefore some things already done:
- Folder permissions are automatically adapted with
fix-permissionsso this image will work with a random user and therefore also on OpenShift.
- The files within
/etc/nginx/*are parsed through envplate with an container-entrypoint.
Included Nginx configuration (static-files.conf)¶
By default nginx only serves static files - this can be used for static sites that don't require a database or php components e.g. Static site generators like Hugo, Jekyll or Gatsby. Simply build the content during the build process and inject it into the nginx container.
In order to create redirects we have the redirects-map.conf in place. This helps you to redirect marketing domains to subsites or do non-www to www redirects.
If you have a lot of redirects we suggest to have the
redirects-map.conf stored next to your code for easier maintainability.
If you just have a few redirects there's a handy trick to create the redirects with a
RUN command in your Dockerfile.nginx.
Example for redirecting
example.com and preserving the request.
RUN echo "~^www.example.com http://example.com\$request_uri;" >> /etc/nginx/redirects-map.conf
To get more details about the various types of redirects that can be achieved see the documentation within the redirects-map.conf directly.
If you want to protect your site via Basic Authentication you can do this by defining the environment variables
BASIC_AUTH_PASSWORD within your .lagoon.env.environment files.
Environment variables are meant to do common behavior changes of php.
||(not set)||Username for basic Authentication|
||(not set)||Password for basic authentication (unencrypted)|
