Jahia with Docker - Instructions

 All downloads

The Jahia Docker images are for advanced users. If you are new and want to evaluate Jahia, opt for our online trial.

The Docker images provide a 30-day trial version. The full Enterprise Distribution of Jahia is available through an annual subscription that includes unlimited bug fixes, Online Technical Assistance and specific SLAs for both development and production environments. The Enterprise Distribution is offered with a business-friendly license: the JSEL License.

After the 30-day trial, you can request a free license on id.jahia.com/licenses


Installing Docker and running a Jahia Docker image

To make the installation as simple as possible, you use Docker to deploy Jahia and its dependencies. If you don’t have Docker installed on your system, you can get it here: https://www.docker.com/get-started

Note: Please ensure that your Docker installation allows allocating up to 4GB of memory to a container. For MacOS users, in Docker go to Preferences>Advanced and set the memory limit to 4GB or more instead of the default 2GB.

To run a Jahia Docker image:

After installing Docker, open a Terminal on Linux or Mac, or a Command Prompt on Windows (cmd.exe), and type the following commands:

docker pull jahia/jahia-discovery:jahiaVersion
docker run -p 8080:8080 jahia/jahia-discovery:jahiaVersion

Where jahiaVersion is the version you are installing. You can use latest instead of the Jahia version to run the latest Jahia release.

The initial startup of Jahia takes a few minutes. When Jahia finishes starting, you should see a message that looks like this:

 D E V E L O P M E N T   M O D E A C T I V E

 In development mode, Jahia will allow JSPs to be modified, modules to be
 re-deployed and other modifications to happen immediately, but these DO have a performance impact.
 It is strongly recommended to switch to production mode when running performance tests or going live.
 The setting to change modes is called operatingMode in the jahia.properties configuration file.
