Hi! My name is Kimberley and I’m new here (is there anywhere a introduction fora?)
In recent weeks I have started with 2 Raspberry Pi4s and I am very happy with them. What I wanted to achieve is my own apache server with different websites and I succeeded! By making a lot of mistakes and especially starting over a lot and I really mean going through all the steps from the beginning.
Then a friend came up with the tip to try Docker, so I set to work on that. Again it took me hours or even days with a lot of high blood pressure and stress, what a lot it takes to understand that! Respect for everyone who thinks this is a piece of cake! Finally learned a lot, but now I also got a lot of questions, see below;
1.a) Have a Docker container containing Biarms / Mysql, Wordpress and PHPMyAdmin. On my first Raspberry everything runs without a container and because it has several websites running on it, I had to point domain names to the correct folder in file
/etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf. But how is that going with Docker container websites? Where do I indicate which domain should go to which Docker container?
1.b) Is it smarter to create a new Docker container per website or is it smarter to host all websites in 1 Docker container?
Now have a NextCloud with Biarms / MySQL running in Docker container, just wondering if I can view the files without opening the Docker container. Where are they stored and can I possibly ensure that they are stored outside the Docker container? (Wordpress files can be viewed and edited outside the container, exactly what I would like with NextCloud)
Is it smart to place different images in 1 Docker container or do you have to grab one Docker container per images? What is Wisdom?
What I ultimately want is my own VPN, cloud storage or NAS, web server with different websites and preferably with a control panel for the websites to be configured. What is the logical structure in Docker here?
