Mounting an architecture infrastructure with containers has many advantages; among them we can name the security issue between the processes, lack of internal network problems and the use of limited resources that even makes it easy to analyze problems.

The official repository of Docker Hub has hundreds of APIs as memcache, redis, mongo, node, MySQL, HTTPD.

WordPress has its official docker container: With it, you can easily have installation containerized.


docker run --detach \
--name nestify-container \
--link some-container-com-mysql:mysql \
-e WORDPRESS_DB_NAME=Nestify_WordPress \
-p 8080:80 \

After running the installation command, it will be active and can be accessed with https: // localhost: 8080 or https: // host-IP: 8080 in your browser.

To copy your site into the container you can use the command:
