Why PHP-FPM prefixes a warning when writing to stdout?

I try to run a Yii based PHP application in a Docker container using the official php-fpm image. It’s common practice for docker containers to write all log messages to stdout / stderr. So I do the same from my container with a code that basically looks like this: $fp = @fopen(‘php://stdout’,’w’); fwrite($fp, $message); fclose($fp); […]

Docker 1.10 container's IP in LAN

Since Docker 1.10 (and libnetwork update) we can manually give an IP to a container inside a user-defined network, and that’s cool! I want to give a container an IP address in my LAN (like we can do with Virtual Machines in “bridge” mode). My LAN is, all my computers have IP addresses inside […]

How can I connect my autoscaling group to my ecs cluster?

In all tutorials for ECS you need to create a cluster and after that an autoscaling group, that will spawn instances. Somehow in all these tutorials the instances magically show up in the cluster, but noone gives a hint what’s connecting the autoscaling group and the cluster. my autoscaling group spawns instances as expected, but […]

Does anyone know a way of getting the container to […]

Strategies for deciding when to use 'docker run' vs 'docker start' and using the latest version of a given image

I’m dockerizing some of our services. For our dev environment, I’d like to make things as easy as possible for our developers and so I’m writing some scripts to manage the dockerized components. I want developers to be able to start and stop these services just as if they were non-dockerized. I don’t want them […]

How best to use Docker in continuous delivery?

What is the best way to use Docker in a Continuous Delivery pipeline? Should the build artefact be a Docker Image rather than a Jar/War? If so, how would that work – I’m struggling to work out how to seamlessly use Docker in development (on laptop) and then have the CI server use the same […]
