How to install WordPress using docker

WordPress is among the most widely used content management systems (CMS) because of its abundance of functionality and simplicity of use. This is where Docker comes in, condensing the installation procedure to a handful of quick instructions that need a little time and effort.

On any system and OS, quick and easy software installation is possible thanks to the Docker container technology.

Install Docker

If you see, installing Docker is easy and simple. Here, you need to run the update command for your system to make sure you have the latest source list.

# Debian and Ubuntu
sudo apt-get update

# CentOS
sudo yum update

Verify that you have the command-line tool curl.

curl -V

Install it manually using the right command for your OS if it isn’t already present.

# Debian and Ubuntu


sudo yum install curl

To download and install Docker as the root user, run the command below.

curl -fsSL | sh

With the help of the subsequent test software, you may verify that the installation was successful:

docker run hello-world

An output resembling the example below should be displayed.

Unable to find image 'hello-world:latest' locally
latest: Pulling from library/hello-world
Hello from Docker.
This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.

Docker should now be set up and operating properly. Continue with the remainder of the WordPress setup below.
