# example Dockerfile for
FROM ubuntu
# Add the PostgreSQL PGP key to verify their Debian packages.
# It should be the same key as
RUN apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys B97B0AFCAA1A47F044F244A07FCC7D46ACCC4CF8
# Add PostgreSQL's repository. It contains the most recent stable release
# of PostgreSQL, ``9.3``.
RUN echo "deb precise-pgdg main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list
# Install ``python-software-properties``, ``software-properties-common`` and PostgreSQL 9.3
# There are some warnings (in red) that show up during the build. You can hide
# them by prefixing each apt-get statement with DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y python-software-properties software-properties-common postgresql-9.3 postgresql-client-9.3 postgresql-contrib-9.3
# Note: The official Debian and Ubuntu images automatically ``apt-get clean``
# after each ``apt-get``
# Run the rest of the commands as the ``postgres`` user created by the ``postgres-9.3`` package when it was ``apt-get installed``
USER postgres
# Create a PostgreSQL role named ``docker`` with ``docker`` as the password and
# then create a database `docker` owned by the ``docker`` role.
# Note: here we use ``&&\`` to run commands one after the other - the ``\``
# allows the RUN command to span multiple lines.
RUN /etc/init.d/postgresql start &&\
psql --command "CREATE USER docker WITH SUPERUSER PASSWORD 'docker';" &&\
createdb -O docker docker
# Adjust PostgreSQL configuration so that remote connections to the
# database are possible.
RUN echo "host all all md5" >> /etc/postgresql/9.3/main/pg_hba.conf
# And add ``listen_addresses`` to ``/etc/postgresql/9.3/main/postgresql.conf``
RUN echo "listen_addresses='*'" >> /etc/postgresql/9.3/main/postgresql.conf
# Expose the PostgreSQL port
# Add VOLUMEs to allow backup of config, logs and databases
VOLUME ["/etc/postgresql", "/var/log/postgresql", "/var/lib/postgresql"]
# Set the default command to run when starting the container
CMD ["/usr/lib/postgresql/9.3/bin/postgres", "-D", "/var/lib/postgresql/9.3/main", "-c", "config_file=/etc/postgresql/9.3/main/postgresql.conf"]
