Running with Docker
Docker images are hosted under the
docker run -p 80:80 -ti mailcarrier/mailcarrier
By default the app runs with a public "App Key" for testing purposes; it's being used to encrypt everything in MailCarrier, so you should use a random, unique, string.
To generate a string, you can run the following command inside your container:
php artisan key:generate --show
Then pass the given value as an env value when running your app:
docker run -e APP_KEY=mysecretstring -p 80:80 mailcarrier/mailcarrier
Always because of testing purposes, the image runs on a volatile
sqlite database, but you should definitely connect the app the a proper, persistent mounted database, such as MySQL or PostgreSQL.
You can find an example of the environment variables to customise the app in the
.env.example file, for example to connect a database and a redis queue it would be something like:
docker run \ -e APP_KEY=mysecretstring \ -e DB_CONNECTION=mysql \ -e DB_HOST=mysql_host \ -e DB_USERNAME=mailcarrier \ -e DB_PASSWORD=secretdbpassword \ -e QUEUE_CONNECTION=redis \ -e REDIS_HOST=redis_host \ -p 80:80 \ mailcarrier/mailcarrier
