Install Docker with Docker Compose.


The application uses port 80, so make sure that other services do not use it.

Run Application 

  1. Download the repository with a docker-compose configuration file.

    Check out the git repository

    git clone
    cd docker-demo

    or download the archive file and extract it

    wget -O - | tar -xzf -
    cd docker-demo
  2. Run application containers

    The configuration is entirely predefined, and you can only change the name of the domain where the application will be located. By default, it is oro.demo. If you need to change the domain, create the .env file with content ORO_APP_DOMAIN=my-custom-domain.demo.

    Run init service

    docker compose up restore

    Alternatively, you can install the application from scratch. This will require more time and resources.

    Run install service

    docker compose up install

    You can run the application as soon as it is installed or initialized:

    docker compose up application

    The docker-compose will download the required images, create networks and run containers. Application commerce-crm-application is used by default. You can run other community applications, such as crm-application, platform-application or commerce-crm-application-de. To select another application, set a different image in the .env file, for example:

    If you want to get the application in a different locale, add the contents of the file .env-locale-de_DE or .env-locale-fr_FR to .env and restart the restore service and application.

    cat .env-locale-de_DE >> .env

    To track the logs from the php-fpm-app container, run docker compose logs -f php-fpm-app. To get the list of containers, run docker compose ps.

  3. Add a record to file /etc/hosts oro.demo
  4. Open the application in a browser: http://oro.demo.

    To access the back-office, use admin as both login and password. To access the storefront, use the credentials of the predefined demo user roles. To log in as a buyer, use both as your login and password. To log in as a manager, use both as your login and password.

Access the Mail Catcher 

Smtp service is additionally launched so you can send emails from the application. It receives all mail and has a web interface that enables you to view it and perform the required actions. The web interface for the mail catcher is available at the address http://oro.demo/mailcatcher.

Stop the Application 

  • To stop and remove all containers, run docker-compose down.

  • To stop and remove all containers with the data saved in volumes, run docker-compose down -v.


If you deployed the application before, pull up fresh images with docker-compose pull.

About This Project 

This repository provides a Docker Compose configuration file (compose.yaml) and demonstrates how to run different applications and required services in containers.Oro Inc. provides images with applications Community Edition in public Docker Hub.


This deployment is NOT intended for a production environment.

Docker images with different applications:

One image is used to run containers in several roles: web server, php-fpm, consumer, WebSocket server, and cron service. All these services must be running, and the PostgreSQL database must be prepared for a full-fledged application.
