Dockware and other images

Can i use dockware in combination with other images?

Dockware is a Docker image like every other image. You can combine it with 3rd party services such as Redis, Elasticsearch, a separate MySQL, Percona or anything else.

Make sure they are on the same Docker network and use the key names of the containers as host addresses.

Here's an example:

docker-compose.yml
version: "3"
services:
shopware:
image: dockware/play:latest
container_name: shopware
ports:
- "80:80"
networks:
- web
db:
image: mysql:5.7
container_name: mysql
networks:
- web
environment:
- MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=hidden
- MYSQL_USER=shopuser
- MYSQL_PASSWORD=secret
- MYSQL_DATABASE=shopware
networks:
web:
external: false

To access the standalone MySQL instance you need to set the correct host.

The host is the name of your container (here -> "db")

Different systems have different options to configure a database connection string. In Shopware 6, it would be inside the .env file as DATABASE_URL. In Shopware 5, it is in the config.php file.

SHOPWARE 6 (.env file inside docker)
DATABASE_URL=mysql://shopuser:[email protected]:3306/shopware
