I need to create a Moodle virtual host

I need to set up a docker-compose with 2 virtual hosts using apache2 and install a moodle on one of those.
I’m pretty lost tbh, I know that i need mysql and php. I wonder if someone could give an orientation dockerfile of how to do that.
(using ubuntu:16.04)

My dockerfile looks like this atm but it’s not working when I try to run the image:

" FROM ubuntu:16.04

Hello Carles

Are you from Switzerland ?

Because then we can speak in german.

you can search hub.docker.com for moodle

https://hub.docker.com/search/?isAutomated=0&isOfficial=0&page=1&pullCount=1&q=moodle&starCount=0

you should able to see lots of example how others using the moodle with docker

hope that helps

Noop I’m from Spain :confused: Can only speak eng, catalan and spanish fluently thx anyway

Yes, I checked a lot of em but I didnt find anyone using the apache2 dualhost, thx.
But It also helped since I’m gettin more familiar with the dockerfiles, I think that my moodle will be working soon ^^
