Configuring HTTPD Server on Docker Container

Docker Container

A container is a standard unit of software that packages up code and all its dependencies so the application runs quickly and reliably from one computing environment to another.

A Docker container image is a lightweight, standalone, executable package of software that includes everything needed to run an application: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries and settings.

Container images become containers at runtime and in the case of Docker containers — images become containers when they run on Docker Engine. Containers isolate software from its environment and ensure that it works uniformly despite differences for instance between development and staging.

Now to configure the HTTPD Server on Docker Container the first step is to download the docker

  1. The command used to install docker is
yum install docker-ce --nobest -y

2. After this we have to start the docker service the command used is

systemctl start docker

3. After this pull the centos:7 image. The command used is

docker pull centos:7

[root@localhost ~]# docker pull centos:7
7: Pulling from library/centos
2d473b07cdd5: Pull complete
Status: Download newer image for centos:7

4. Launch the docker container using the command.

docker run -it — name containername imagesname:imageversion

[root@localhost ~]# docker run -it --name WebOS centos:7

5. Install the webserver using the command.

yum install httpd -y

[root@localhost ~]# yum install httpd -y

6. Go inside the /var/www/html directory and make a webpage using the command

cd /var/www/html

[root@localhost ~]# cd /var/www/html
[root@localhost ~]# vi webpage.html

7. Now inside the webpage write the html code and save it using :wq

8. Now start the webserver but using the command

systemctl start httpd may give an error so prefer using the command


to run the webserver.

[root@localhost ~]# /usr/sbin/httpd

9. Now you can take the IP address and then access it on the google of your local system to see the webpage you have created

10. Or you can also check using the command

curl http://ipaddress/webpage.html

[root@localhost ~]# curl
Hello this is running on docker
[root@localhost ~]#

Hence the httpd server is configure on the Docker.

Hope it was helpful to you.

Thank You!!
