List of Dockerfiles

Following is the list of Docker images that are maintained by EasyEngine team:

easyengine/nginx-proxy

It is a fork of jwilder/nginx-proxy that routes request to individual site’s nginx containers. We’ve modified nginx-proxy’s go template used to generate config to support some changes that EasyEngine needed such as –

Previously we used to manage our own nginx build. But in v4, we’ve decided to use openresty since it has all the nginx modules we need.

easyengine/php

It runs PHP process and has other utilities such as WP-CLI.

The list of php modules is here.

easyengine/mariadb

Mariadb database container.

easyengine/redis

Redis is used for full page caching and WordPress object caching.

easyengine/postfix

Postfix is used to send emails. We highly recommend you to use external email sending service such as Amazon SES on sites where emails are critical such as e-commerce sites.

For Amazon SES, you can use aws-ses-wp-mail plugin.

Postfix is not necessary and could be disabled in such case. The feature to disable postfix will be available in future EasyEngine releases.

easyengine/mailhog

Mailhog serves as a mailcatcher utility when you do not want your mail to go out of your server. This is desirable in dev/test environment.

If you have enabled mailhog, postfix will send emails to mailhog.

easyengine/cron

It is used to manage crons in EasyEngine. Uses ofelia to schedule crons.

Here is documentation on how to add cron.
