I’ll be speaking next month at the WordPress Meetup about the using Docker to host a development WP server on your laptop. Here’s the writeup:
Docker for WordPress
Docker enables developers to easily pack, ship, and run any application (including WordPress) as a lightweight, self-sufficient container which can run virtually anywhere.
For WordPress users, this means it’s easy to set up a lightweight development WP server on your laptop/desktop. You can make and test changes before migrating it to your client’s site. Best of all, if you screw things up, you can simply discard the container’s files and start afresh in a couple minutes. And because it’s running on your local computer, no need to worry about hosting, configuring servers, etc.
Rich will show how to install the Docker application on a laptop, then install and start a WordPress Docker container. The result is the familiar new WP install that you can customize to your heart’s (or client’s) content.
The WordPress Meetup is open to all on Tuesday, 8 May. Sign up at https://www.meetup.com/WordPressDevNH/events/249032144/
