Chapter 2: Dokerize Laravel App with Nginx and Postgres.


So previously we have set our app Dockerfile and docker-compose.

Now we will set up our Nginx docker-compose.

At this point, we don't need to create a custom Nginx Dockerfile. We can use the Nginx image from Docker, nginx:1.19.8-alpine.

Before we head to the docker-compose file, first we need to create Nginx conf to configure our web server.

Go to ./infra/nginx/conf and create app.conf, we can name it anything as long as it's ended with .conf.

server {
    listen 80;
    index index.php index.html;
    error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log;
    access_log /var/log/nginx/access.log;
    root /var/www/public;
    location ~ \.php$ {
        try_files $uri =404;
        fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
        fastcgi_pass app:9000;
        fastcgi_index index.php;
        include fastcgi_params;
        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
        fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_path_info;
    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;
        gzip_static on;
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You can modify it if you want later, for example, if you want to add SSL or something else.

Now we head to our docker-compose.yml file.

version: "3.7"

    driver: bridge

    container_name: app
      context: ./infra/app
      dockerfile: Dockerfile
    image: php-laravel-7.0
    restart: unless-stopped
    tty: true
    working_dir: /var/www
      - ./:/var/www
      - app-network

    image: nginx:1.19.8-alpine
    container_name: nginx
    restart: unless-stopped
    tty: true
        - 8100:80
        - ./infra/nginx/conf:/etc/nginx/conf.d
        - app-network
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

In port we can see 8100:80, We expose our Nginx in port 80 and expose it to the public using port 8100. So we can access our Laravel app via Nginx using localhost:8100.

And also we copy again our Nginx conf to the container Nginx folder.
