docker website opens after a while – ec2/virtualbox

I have created a docker image, tested it locally. All working well.

After that I used the same Dockerfile – built it and run it on EC2.

  • How to customize the docker run command on Elastic Beanstalk?
  • How can I increase timeouts of AWS worker tier instances?
  • How to create a docker container out of existing project on Ubuntu
  • Using docker behind a proxy on an EC2 instance
  • Mesos, Marathon, the cloud and 10 data centers - How to talk to each other?
  • AWS ECS - Images from S3
  • The Apache webserver is listening to the connections, I have opened firewall in EC2 machine security settings, but if I try to navigate to the webisite, it seems to be opening for approx 2.5 minutes.

    And then the website OPENS. Each navigation step takes 2.5 minutes.


    I have tried to replicate this environment on Windows machine with Virtual Box and it has exactly same issue. Website would take long time and eventually open. It also broke connect to another machine that that was completely not docker related (Ubuntu dev box)

    Can anybody advice something?

    Here is docker file:

    FROM ubuntu
    RUN apt-get update -y
    RUN apt-get install -y apache2 php5 vim libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mcrypt 
    RUN echo "ServerName localhost" >> /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
    ENV APACHE_RUN_USER www-data
    ENV APACHE_LOG_DIR /var/log/apache2
    ENV APACHE_LOCK_DIR /var/lock/apache2
    ENV APACHE_PID_FILE /var/run/
    EXPOSE 80
    RUN ln -sf /dev/stderr /var/log/apache2/error.log
    CMD /usr/sbin/apache2ctl -D FOREGROUND

    As illustrated in “Debug your PHP in Docker with Intellij/PHPStorm and Xdebug”, it is possible to debug php from within a container.

    The OP activated it directly in php.ini:

      xdebug.remote_enable=on xdebug.remote_handler=dbgg

    Removing that module was enough to bring the response time down.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
