Docker LAMP development stack with valid https support
The Devilbox is a modern and highly customisable dockerized PHP stack supporting full LAMP and MEAN and running on all major platforms. The main goal is to easily switch and combine any version required for local development.
It supports an unlimited number of projects for which vhosts, SSL certificates and DNS records are created automatically. Email catch-all and popular development tools will be at your service as well. Configuration is not necessary, as everything is already pre-setup.
Supported Host OS
Don't worry about switching computers. The devilbox will run on all major operating systems.
Install, Configure and Start
Your whole development stack is up and running in a few simple steps.
|Linux and MacOS||Windows|
# Get the Devilbox $ git clone https://github.com/cytopia/devilbox
# Create docker-compose environment file $ cd devilbox $ cp env-example .env
# Edit your configuration $ vim .env
# Start all container $ docker-compose up
# Start all container C:\devilbox> docker-compose up
Run exactly what you need
Documentation: Change container versions
Choose your required daemons and select a version. Any combination is possible.
This will allow you, to always exactly simulate your production environment locally during development.
 PHP 5.2 is available to use, but it is not officially supported. The Devilbox intranet does not work with this version as PHP 5.2 does not support namespaces. Furthermore PHP 5.2 does only work with Apache 2.4, Nginx stable and Nginx mainline. It does not work with Apache 2.2. Use at your own risk.
Documentation: Enable custom container
Additionally to the default stack, there are a variety of other services that can be easily enabled and started.
Run only what you need
Documentation: Start only some container
You are not forced to load the whole stack everytime. Only bring up what you really need.
It is also possible to add or remove daemons while the stack is already running.
# Load traditional lamp stack only $ docker-compose up httpd php mysql # Add redis to the running stack $ docker-compose up redis # Stop MySQL from the current stack $ docker-compose stop mysql
Head over to youtube for a quick introduction and see for yourself how easily new projects can be created.
The devilbox is a development stack, so it is made sure that a lot of PHP modules are available out of the box in order to work with many different frameworks. There will however be slight differences between the versions and especially with HHVM. To see the exact bundled modules for each version visit the corresponding docker repositories on Github:
amqp, apcu, bcmath, bz2, calendar, Core, ctype, curl, date, dba, dom, enchant, exif, fileinfo, filter, ftp, gd, gettext, gmp, hash, iconv, igbinary, imagick, imap, interbase, intl, json, ldap, libxml, mbstring, mcrypt, memcache, memcached, mongodb, msgpack, mysqli, mysqlnd, openssl, pcntl, pcre, PDO, pdo_dblib, PDO_Firebird, pdo_mysql, pdo_pgsql, pdo_sqlite, pgsql, phalcon, Phar, posix, pspell, readline, recode, redis, Reflection, session, shmop, SimpleXML, snmp, soap, sockets, sodium, SPL, sqlite3, standard, swoole, sysvmsg, sysvsem, sysvshm, tidy, tokenizer, uploadprogress, wddx, xdebug, xml, xmlreader, xmlrpc, xmlwriter, xsl, Zend OPcache, zip, zlib
The built-in postfix mailserver is configured to automatically intercept all outgoing emails. This is an important measurement during development to make sure not to accidentally send out real emails. Instead you will be able to see all sent emails in the included intranet mail view. See Intranet section below.
Creating a new project just requires you to create a new folder on the filesystem. As you probalby don't want to bother with editing your /etc/hosts file everytime, the built-in DNS server will automatically provide the correct DNS records for every project.
No need to download external tools. Everything is bundled, up-to-date and available inside the containers.

Supported Frameworks and CMS
There is nothing special about the devilbox, so any framework or CMS that will work with normal LAMP/MEAN stacks will work here as well. However in order to make double sure, a few popular applications have been explicitly tested.
Setup CakePHP | Setup CodeIgniter | Setup CraftCMS | Setup Drupal | Setup Joomla | Setup Laravel | Setup Magento | Setup PhalconPHP | Setup PhotonCMS | Setup PrestaShop | Setup Shopware | Setup Symfony | Setup Typo3 | Setup Wordpress | Setup Yii | Setup Zend

Once the devilbox is up and running, you can visit the bundled intranet on http://localhost.
The intranet is not just a simple dash, it provides many useful tools:
Be aware that the docker service is running with root privileges on your system (like any other webserver for example). The devilbox is using a mix of official docker images and custom images. All integrated containers are available on Github and can be reviewed at any time.
Docker containers are pushed to Docker Hub frequently.
It should be enough for you to pull updated images on a regeular basis.
$ docker-compose pull
However, if a new minor version (PHP for example) has just been released and you want to use it right away, you can simply *git clone* the docker repository and rebuild the container. Each container repository contains a shell script for easy building.
# Download PHP 7.1 repository $ git clone https://github.com/cytopia/docker-php-fpm-7.1 # Rebuild the container in order to get the latest minor/patch version $ cd docker-php-fpm-7.1 $ ./build/docker-rebuild.sh
In order to make sure everything always runs stable and as expected, the devilbox makes heavy use of integration tests. You can head over to Travis-CI and have a look at stable and nightly builds.
Contributers are welcome in any way.
First of all, if you like the project, please do star it. Starring is an important measurement to see the number of active users and better allows me to organize my time and effort I can put into this project.
You can also get actively involved. Do clone the project and start improving whatever you think is useful. There is quite a lot todo and planned. If you like to contribute, view CONTRIBUTING.md and ROADMAP.
Major contributors will be credited within the intranet and on the github page.
