6. Docker Setup

You can find the offical Docker Version of LinkStack here.

The docker version of LinkStack retains all the features and customization options of the original version.

This docker is based on Alpine Linux, a Linux distribution designed to be small, simple and secure. The web server is running Apache2, a free and open-source cross-platform web server software. The docker comes with PHP 8.2 for high compatibility and performance.

6.1 Deployment

The Docker Image exposes HTTP on port 80 and HTTPS on Port 443. You can modify your deployment via the following optional environment variables

Variable Function default Value
SERVER_ADMIN The admin's email address you@example.com
HTTP_SERVER_NAME the http server name of apache2 localhost
HTTPS_SERVER_NAME the https server name of apache2 localhost
LOG_LEVEL The log level of apache2 info
TZ The timezone UTC
PHP_MEMORY_LIMIT The php memory-limit 256M
UPLOAD_MAX_FILESIZE The upload-max-filesize of PHP 8M

    --mount source=linkstack,target=/htdocs \

6.1.3 Docker Compose Stack

version: '3'
    image: linkstackorg/linkstack:latest
      - TZ=Europe/Berlin
      - SERVER_ADMIN=admin@example.xyz
      - HTTP_SERVER_NAME=www.example.xyz
      - HTTPS_SERVER_NAME=www.example.xyz 
      - LOG_LEVEL=info
      - linkstack:/htdocs
    restart: unless-stopped

6.2 Docker Bind Mounts

It's also possible to run the image with Docker Bind Mounts instead of Docker Volumes. But you have to download the latest release of linkstack by yourself and place it in the mounted directory if you do that. Be sure to give the files the owner and group apache with the uid 100 and gid 101.
