    Default Docker Compose for 157c

    I made a docker compose file for zencart 157c. It's loosely based off of although his does not work. Compare mine and his and you will see what needed to be added.

    It uses Debian 10, MariaDB 10.5, and Zencart 1.57c. SSL is enabled.

    I will include the code here but I also have a git repo which I'm going to attempt to maintain for myself at

    It requires some manual steps, until I get the volume issues ironed out. Any help appreciated.

    # This is the main Apache server configuration file.  It contains the
    # configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
    # See for detailed information about
    # the directives and /usr/share/doc/apache2/README.Debian about Debian specific
    # hints.
    # Summary of how the Apache 2 configuration works in Debian:
    # The Apache 2 web server configuration in Debian is quite different to
    # upstream's suggested way to configure the web server. This is because Debian's
    # default Apache2 installation attempts to make adding and removing modules,
    # virtual hosts, and extra configuration directives as flexible as possible, in
    # order to make automating the changes and administering the server as easy as
    # possible.
    # It is split into several files forming the configuration hierarchy outlined
    # below, all located in the /etc/apache2/ directory:
    #	/etc/apache2/
    #	|-- apache2.conf
    #	|	`--  ports.conf
    #	|-- mods-enabled
    #	|	|-- *.load
    #	|	`-- *.conf
    #	|-- conf-enabled
    #	|	`-- *.conf
    # 	`-- sites-enabled
    #	 	`-- *.conf
    # * apache2.conf is the main configuration file (this file). It puts the pieces
    #   together by including all remaining configuration files when starting up the
    #   web server.
    # * ports.conf is always included from the main configuration file. It is
    #   supposed to determine listening ports for incoming connections which can be
    #   customized anytime.
    # * Configuration files in the mods-enabled/, conf-enabled/ and sites-enabled/
    #   directories contain particular configuration snippets which manage modules,
    #   global configuration fragments, or virtual host configurations,
    #   respectively.
    #   They are activated by symlinking available configuration files from their
    #   respective *-available/ counterparts. These should be managed by using our
    #   helpers a2enmod/a2dismod, a2ensite/a2dissite and a2enconf/a2disconf. See
    #   their respective man pages for detailed information.
    # * The binary is called apache2. Due to the use of environment variables, in
    #   the default configuration, apache2 needs to be started/stopped with
    #   /etc/init.d/apache2 or apache2ctl. Calling /usr/bin/apache2 directly will not
    #   work with the default configuration.
    # Global configuration
    # ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
    # configuration, error, and log files are kept.
    # NOTE!  If you intend to place this on an NFS (or otherwise network)
    # mounted filesystem then please read the Mutex documentation (available
    # at <URL:>);
    # you will save yourself a lot of trouble.
    # Do NOT add a slash at the end of the directory path.
    #ServerRoot "/etc/apache2"
    # The accept serialization lock file MUST BE STORED ON A LOCAL DISK.
    #Mutex file:${APACHE_LOCK_DIR} default
    # The directory where shm and other runtime files will be stored.
    DefaultRuntimeDir ${APACHE_RUN_DIR}
    # PidFile: The file in which the server should record its process
    # identification number when it starts.
    # This needs to be set in /etc/apache2/envvars
    PidFile ${APACHE_PID_FILE}
    # Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.
    Timeout 300
    # KeepAlive: Whether or not to allow persistent connections (more than
    # one request per connection). Set to "Off" to deactivate.
    KeepAlive On
    # MaxKeepAliveRequests: The maximum number of requests to allow
    # during a persistent connection. Set to 0 to allow an unlimited amount.
    # We recommend you leave this number high, for maximum performance.
    MaxKeepAliveRequests 100
    # KeepAliveTimeout: Number of seconds to wait for the next request from the
    # same client on the same connection.
    KeepAliveTimeout 5
    # These need to be set in /etc/apache2/envvars
    # HostnameLookups: Log the names of clients or just their IP addresses
    # e.g., (on) or (off).
    # The default is off because it'd be overall better for the net if people
    # had to knowingly turn this feature on, since enabling it means that
    # each client request will result in AT LEAST one lookup request to the
    # nameserver.
    HostnameLookups Off
    # ErrorLog: The location of the error log file.
    # If you do not specify an ErrorLog directive within a <VirtualHost>
    # container, error messages relating to that virtual host will be
    # logged here.  If you *do* define an error logfile for a <VirtualHost>
    # container, that host's errors will be logged there and not here.
    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
    # LogLevel: Control the severity of messages logged to the error_log.
    # Available values: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
    # error, crit, alert, emerg.
    # It is also possible to configure the log level for particular modules, e.g.
    # "LogLevel info ssl:warn"
    LogLevel warn
