Stateless Joomla on Docker possible??

Post by fbc » Thu May 13, 2021 11:25 am

In trying to find the list of directories that change during the normal course of use. (Excluding tmp, cache, etc directories) I was looking for the plugin and modules directory.

The problem is that they don't start off blank. The base install of Joomla has a default set of components/modules already installed. So you can't just move your plugins directory and config file to another Joomla base install and expect it to work, because there are components/module/etc from the old installation intermingled coming with you.

The images directory is easy enough as that does not come with anything specific to the previous Joomla version.

Is there any way to create a 3rd party plugin/components/modules directories and tell Joomla to install your plugins/components/modules there? So you can move it from install to install without fuss?

I just want to make a docker-compose file where pull the latest git version of Joomla, and map the config file, image and plugin directories to where they are supposed to be and launch.

Yes, that is correct, it's that way by design. They are supposed to use the same DB.
