How to use this image
First, start an instance of mongo:
$ docker run --name db -d mongo:3.0 --smallfiles
Then start Rocket.Chat linked to this mongo instance:
$ docker run --name rocketchat --link db -d rocket.chat
This will start a Rocket.Chat instance listening on the default Meteor port of 3000 on the container.
If you’d like to be able to access the instance directly at standard port on the host machine:
$ docker run --name rocketchat -p 80:3000 --env ROOT_URL=http://localhost --link db -d rocket.chat
Then, access it via
http://localhost in a browser. Replace
ROOT_URL with your own domain name if you are hosting at your own domain.
If you’re using a third party Mongo provider, or working with Kubernetes, you need to override the
MONGO_URL environment variable:
$ docker run --name rocketchat -p 80:3000 --env ROOT_URL=http://localhost --env MONGO_URL=mongodb://mymongourl/mydb -d rocket.chat
