The advanced setup is not that different from the simple setup, but may not be suitable for certain environments. Specifically, it uses different containers for the application running with PHP, and the web server. The docker-compose file also includes configuration for Redis, which increases performance.
Docker images used in this setup are named
This setup is recommended when having full access to Docker, e.g. on a VPS or root server.
- Command-line access to your server
- Docker version 19 or greater
- docker-compose is recommended for the setup, must support compose version 3
- Please consider using
utf8mb4_binas the database collation. Other collations like
utf8mb4_general_cimay cause issues with different Unicode characters.
libseccomp2 (> 2.4.4) installed. Otherwise, you will run into issues with our Docker images. A guide can be found on linuxserver.io.
Setup with Docker
1. Copy all needed files
Download the Docker setup package from the LinkAce repository and unpack it: linkace-docker-advanced.zip
2. Edit the base configuration
You have to change the following settings in the .env file before starting the setup:
- DB_PASSWORD - Please set a secure password here
- REDIS_PASSWORD - Please set a secure password here
CACHE_DRIVER=redisas separate lines to the file
If you are unsure if the
.env file is writable inside Docker, please make it writable for anybody (
-rw-rw-rw- or 666). You can switch back to make it read only after the setup.
Your directory should look like this now:
3. Start the application
After you completed the above steps, run the following command to begin the container setup:
docker-compose up -d
4. Start the built-in setup
Open the URL which points to your Docker container in your browser now. You configure the database and your user account in this process.
5. Follow the post-installation steps
The advanced Docker configuration page provides some guides for specific use cases for Docker, like setup with SSL or behind a proxy.
