There are a lot of options for WordPress hosting out there. Many are single-click options where you enter a few values, and your site is up and running. But do you know what’s going on behind the scenes? I’ve never liked doing things the easy way — I like knowing what’s going on, even if it means avoiding the single-click solutions.

I’d also like to have a copy of WordPress running locally so I can try different plugins and themes but still get back to some sane starting point very quickly. But I don’t want to start installing a lot of software on my laptop. For those of you familiar with my writing, I’m sure you can tell what I’m getting at. Can I run WordPress and the accompanying processes from Docker?

I looked through Docker Hub, and I was pleasantly surprised to find an official image here. It also had a nice docker-compose.yml file to go with it.
