Docker is a technology that allows you to build, run, test, and deploy distributed applications that are based on Linux containers.
Docker is available on many different operating systems, including most modern Linux distributions, like Ubuntu, and even Mac OSX and Windows.If you are using Amazon EC2 already, you can launch an instance and install Docker to get started.
Steps to install docker in AWS
1. Launch AMI EC2 Instance
2. xshell SSH into EC2
3. Update the installed packages and package cache on your instance.
sudo yum update -y
4. Remove previous version’s docker
sudo yum remove docker \
5. Install the most recent Docker Community Edition package.
sudo yum install docker
6. Start the Docker service.
sudo service docker start
7. Add the
ec2-user to the
docker group so you can execute Docker commands without using
sudo usermod -a -G docker ec2-user
8.Log out and log back in again to pick up the new
docker group permissions. Or just a simple reboot your EC2 instance
9. Run Command in the Docker Container
docker exec -it ubuntu /bin/bash
Steps to launch WordPress Image in EC2
1. Pull Image from tutum/wordpress
docker run -d -p 80:80 tutum/wordpress
2. Run WordPress image
docker run -d –name=wp1 -p 80:80 -p 443:443 tutum/wordpress
3. Show running container list
4. Test launched wp1 container
5. Use browser to complete famous WordPress configuration wizard
Steps to migrate WordPress
1. Make sure WordPress Version is same
2. If not, update to same version from WordPress admin page. Sometime, it does not work, you might have to do a manual update just as I did.
Here is the error message I got :
Downloading update from https://downloads.wordpress.org/release/wordpress-5.0.3-new-bundled.zipUnpacking the update…
The update cannot be installed because we will be unable to copy some files. This is usually due to inconsistent file permissions.: wp-admin/includes/update-core.php
|WordPress Update Error Example|
Note: steps are from https://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress
- Enter command line of docker container : docker exec -it wp1 /bin/bash
- Get the latest WordPress zip (or tar.gz) file. (sudo wget https://wordpress.org/latest.zip)
- Unpack the zip file that you downloaded.
- Deactivate plugins.
- Delete the old
wp-admindirectories on your web host
- move the new
wp-admindirectories to your web host, in place of the previously deleted directories.
- Upload the individual files from the new
wp-contentfolder to your existing
wp-contentfolder, overwriting existing files. Do NOT delete your existing
wp-contentfolder. Do NOT delete any files or folders in your existing
wp-contentdirectory (except for the one being overwritten by new files).
here are all related commands I used :
sudo apt-get install wget sudo wget https://downloads.wordpress.org/release/wordpress-5.0.3.zip unzip wordpress-5.0.3.zip -d /tmp apt-get install unzip unzip wordpress-5.0.3.zip -d /tmp cd /tmp ls cd wordpress/ ls cd /app ls rm wp-admin rm -r wp-admin rm -r wp-includes/ ls -l mv /tmp/wordpress/wp-admin . ls -l mv /tmp/wordpress/wp-includes/ . ls
cp /tmp/wordpress/* . cp -a /tmp/wordpress/wp-content/* wp-content/
Once you complete those commands, you can launch the WordPress page again by entering the public ip address of your EC2 instance. You will be prompted to upgrade mysql database. Just click yes to continue.
3. Export your Existing WordPress site through plug-in: All-in-One WP Migration to local file.
4. Install plug-in: All-in-One WP Migration into your new WordPress site. But it has file upload limitation.
5. You can click How-to: Increase maximum upload file size to get a couple of methods to change it. The easiest way to do it is to install another plugin All-in-One WP Migration Import from https://import.wp-migration.com. The basic version can give you a limitation for 512MB, which is enough for most personal websites/blogs.
6. After imported your exported file, there are still a couple of steps to do to complete whole migration.
6.1 Settings -> Permalinks. It is best to change to something else for your Permalink Settings and save, then change it back to what you original set up and save.
6.2 Your WordPress address and Site address should still be your EC2 public ip address. You will need to change them to your site URL as shown in following screenshot.
6.3 DNS A record Change. Since you got a new public ip address for your WordPress site, the A record will have to change to match this change. If you want to keep your existing WordPress site and new WordPress site, you will just need to add a new A record. You will get a load balance for your site from DNS server queries.
