Installing postgre driver in php7-fpm Docker container
PHP:latest Docker container using the docker-compose command. It installed
php-7.1.6-fpm in my Docker. When I tried to install
php7-pgsql extension it failed to find that package, instead found
pdo_pgsql packages. That will not satisfy my need. When I search for the available packages in the installed PHP container, I could not find any related pgsql packages for
php7, instead, I saw
php5-pgsql package, that will not work with php7-fpm.
Finally, I installed php-5.6-fpm container after removing the old one targeting to use
php5-pgsql package. But now I disappointed again that I could not find
php5-pgsql package in the newly installed container.
I know I’ll be missing some important points. Whether Alpine Linux does not have
php-pgsql extension. What are the possible ways to include this extension in my PHP container. I’ve also included Nginx and Postgres in my docker-compose.yml
I’ve only 3-day theory knowledge in Docker and first-day practical experience.
Thanks for reading.
