Discourse + Docker on existing VM with PHP site


(Craig Bowes) #1

I have a VM setup for a new website I’m developing (Concrete5, PHP, MySQL) and I was wondering if I would run into any issues with running Discourse+Docker on the same box? Will Docker mess w/ my existing Nginx configurations?

No, a Docker-installed Discourse will not modify your host’s nginx configuration. You should have no problems having both Discourse and existing web technologies co-exist.

Cool, so forgive my docker ignorance here… how do they both receive requests on port 80? Does docker have its own install of nginx that has access to the outside world?
