My OS X-friendly Docker LAMP, MySQL, and Apache-PHP images now support Vagrant-based boot2docker boxes

M

As of today, my three Docker images osx-docker-lamp, osx-docker-mysql, and osx-docker-apache-php support boot2docker run through Vagrant.

In short, when running boot2docker through Vagrant, you should add the following three environment variables

  • VAGRANT_OSX_MODE="true" for enabling Vagrant-compatibility
  • DOCKER_USER_ID=$(id -u) for letting Vagrant use your host user ID for mounted folders
  • DOCKER_USER_GID=$(id -g) for letting Vagrant use your host user GID for mounted folders

Grab the images’ sources by following the project link, or run the images using the Docker Hub.
