re: What do you use to replicate your dev environment? VIEW POST


Sweet setup! I'm still new to Wordpress actually, do you have a Docker container for each Wordpress project you have or are they all on the same and you have maybe one container by type of project ?

If you have one per Worpress project, that should take up a lot of disk space, right?


Yes, I have a Docker container for every project. My Docker workspace (including everything) is 3.2G, and my WordPress workspace takes up 2.2G of that. So, it doesn't take up much space.

That's actually not that bad, I'll give it a shot. Thanks!

Quick question if you don't mind, do you use a tool in particular when you mount your directories to the container, or do you just use the -v command ?

I use docker-compose which allows you to set up docker container configurations in a docker-compose.yml file. Volume mounting is described in the docker-compose file documentation.

It's an alternative to using the base docker command and using -v every time. I don't like having to remember what options I used for a custom docker container, so for me, slapping it into a config file and running docker-compose up or docker-compose down is a huge benefit.
