Docker : Use Dockerfile2019/01/22

Use Dockerfile and create Docker images automatically.
It is also useful for configuration management.
[1] For example, Create a Dockerfile to install httpd and sshd and also install Supervisor to control multiple services on a Container.
dlp:~ #
vi Dockerfile
# create new

FROM fedora
MAINTAINER ServerWorld <>

RUN dnf -y install openssh-server httpd supervisor
RUN echo "Hello DockerFile World" > /var/www/html/index.html
RUN mkdir /root/.ssh; chown root. /root/.ssh; chmod 700 /root/.ssh
RUN ssh-keygen -A

ADD supervisord.conf /etc/supervisord.conf
ADD .ssh/ /root/.ssh/authorized_keys

EXPOSE 22 80
CMD ["/usr/bin/supervisord"]

# create a Supervisor template

dlp:~ #
vi supervisord.conf

command=/usr/sbin/sshd -D

command=/usr/sbin/httpd -D FOREGROUND

# generate SSH key

dlp:~ #
ssh-keygen -q -N "" -f /root/.ssh/id_rsa
# build image ⇒ docker build -t [image name]:[tag] .

dlp:~ #
docker build -t web_server:latest .

The format of Dockerfile is [INSTRUCTION arguments] .
Refer to the following description for INSTRUCTION.
FROM iIt sets the Base Image for subsequent instructions.
MAINTAINER It sets the Author field of the generated images.
RUN It will execute any commands when Docker image will be created.
CMD It will execute any commands when Docker container will be executed.
ENTRYPOINT It will execute any commands when Docker container will be executed.
LABEL It adds metadata to an image.
EXPOSE It informs Docker that the container will listen on the specified network ports at runtime.
ENV It sets the environment variable.
ADD It copies new files, directories or remote file URLs.
COPY It copies new files or directories.
The differences of [ADD] are that it's impossible to specify remore URL and also it will not extract archive files automatically.

USER It sets the user name or UID.
WORKDIR It sets the working directory.
