ITB2019 Containerizing ContentBox CMS - Gavin Pickin


Published on

In this session we will be learning how to start using ContentBox, and from the beginning, setup your site to be containerized and deployed with Continuous Integration to a Cloud Provider on a Docker Swarm. You will learn about Ortus Solution's ( Docker Partner ) docker images for CommandBox and ContentBox, and how to build your site, dockerize, and then deploy (using only free tools), to the cloud of your choice. If the live demo gods are on our side, I will deploy a new site to Digital Ocean at the end of this session.

ITB2019 Containerizing ContentBox CMS - Gavin Pickin

  1. 1. Containerizing ContentBox CMS Gavin Pickin
  2. 2. ● About Me?
  3. 3. Who am I? ● Software Consultant for Ortus Solutions ● Work with ColdBox, CommandBox, ContentBox every day ● Working with Coldfusion for 20 years ● Working with Javascript just as long ● Love learning and sharing the lessons learned ● From New Zealand, live in Bakersfield, Ca ● Loving wife, lots of kids, and countless critters and @gpickin on twitter
  4. 4. Docker Images ● Ortus Solutions has built and supports a few docker images, the most common and popular ○ ortussolutions/commandbox ● Ortus Solutions has built one especially for ContentBox ○ Adds several bells and whistles to help get your ContentBox app ready to deploy to docker ○ ContentBox Image updated for Version 4.0 release.
  5. 5. CommandBox Docker Image ● Gives you commandbox, ready to go. ● Run any CF Engine or WAR file ● Use CFConfig to configure your cfml engine ● Use environment values for overrides ● Put your files in the /app directory and start the server of your choice Your app is yours, and how you set it up, config it, is all up to you.
  6. 6. ContentBox Docker Image ContentBox’s image is built upon CommandBox, so it’s everything plus: ● Datasource config ● Distributed caching for content, rss etc ● Environment Overrides for ContentBox settings ● Embedded H2 DB support ● And more
  7. 7. Use PORTAINER Awesome, Free Opensource Kiwi Powered :)
  8. 8. Portainer
  9. 9. ContentBox Image - Express version ● The express version uses an in memory H2 database. ● Perfect for setting up for testing. ● If you start with the express=true and install=true you can install a fresh contentbox site into the H2 database docker run -p 8080:8080 -e express=true -e install=true ortussolutions/contentbox
  10. 10. ContentBox Image - Persisting Data Docker doesn’t care about your data / files. If you want to keep it, persist it. Here we mount 2 volumes into the H2 data folder and the media folder docker run -p 8080:8080 -e express=true -e install=true -v `pwd`/contentbox-db:/data/contentbox/db -v `pwd`/contentbox-media:/app/includes/shared/media ortussolutions/contentbox
  11. 11. ContentBox Image - Environment Variables This image allows you to pass in a series of environment variables to default your values when installing ContentBox ● Express ● Install ● HEALTHCHECK_URI ● FWREINIT_PW ● SESSION_STORAGE ● DISTRIBUTED_CACHE ● H2_DIR ● contentbox_default_* ● ORM_SECONDARY_CACHE ● ORM_DIALECT ● REMOVE_CBADMIN ● JVM_HEAPSIZE
  12. 12. ContentBox Image - Database Connections ● To programmatically configure the database on container start, environment variables which represent your datasource configuration should be provided. There are two patterns supported: ○ DB_DRIVER configuration - which may be used for Adobe Coldfusion servers ○ DB_CLASS configuration - which configures a datasource by JDBC driver and connection string.
  13. 13. ContentBox Image - Database Connections MYSQL Setup docker run -p 8080:8080 -e 'express=true' -e 'installer=true' -e 'cfconfig_adminPassword=myS3cur3P455' -e "DB_CONNECTION_STRING=jdbc:mysql://mysqlhost:3306/contentbox_docker?useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=UT F-8&useLegacyDatetimeCode=true" -e '' -e 'DB_USER=contentbox_user' -e 'DB_PASSWORD=myS3cur3P455' -v `pwd`/contentbox-media:/app/includes/shared/media ortussolutions/contentbox
  14. 14. ContentBox Image - Database Connections MSSQL Setup on Adobe docker run -p 8080:8080 -e 'CFENGINE=adobe@11' -e 'installer=true' -e 'cfconfig_adminPassword=myS3cur3P455' -e 'DB_DRIVER=MSSQLServer' -e 'DB_HOST=sqlserver_host' -e 'DB_PORT=1433' -e 'DB_NAME=contentbox_docker' -e 'DB_USER=sa' -e 'DB_PASSWORD=myS3cur3P455' -v `pwd`/contentbox-media:/app/includes/shared/media ortussolutions/contentbox
  15. 15. ContentBox Image - Distributed Cache ● By default, this image is configured to use the connected database as a caching storage as well. This will allow you to distribute your stack with pseudo-caching enabled. ● However, if you would like to have a real distributed cache like Redis or Couchbase connected to your images, you will need to use the appropriate CacheBox providers and your own custom CacheBox.cfc configuration file. For an example of using Redis, check out our compose repository:
  16. 16. What if I have a ContentBox site already? Two Options ● Extract your changes from your old site and mount/copy them into ContentBox’s Docker Image - let’s look at that first ● Update your existing site to use some ContentBox Docker Image magic - we’ll look at this in a little while
  17. 17. Let’s startup a site with ContentBox image ● docker run -p 8888:8080 -e 'INSTALL=true' -e 'CFCONFIG_ADMINPASSWORD=guardians' -e "DB_CONNECTION_STRING=jdbc:mysql:// e&characterEncoding=UTF-8&useLegacyDatetimeCode=true" -e '' -e 'DB_USER=thor -e 'DB_PASSWORD=topsecret’ ortussolutions/contentbox
  18. 18. Folder Structure - Where are my Files? Working with Docker where everything is in the image already is a little weird to say the least. You only need what is different in your local files ● Mount the persistent files as a volume ● Mount / Copy the Changes
  19. 19. Let’s add our Media into the Image docker run -p 8888:8080 -e 'INSTALL=true' -e 'CFCONFIG_ADMINPASSWORD=guardians' -e "DB_CONNECTION_STRING=jdbc:mysql:// racterEncoding=UTF-8&useLegacyDatetimeCode=true" -e '' -e 'DB_USER=thor -e 'DB_PASSWORD=topsecret’ -v c:/www/contentbox-zero-to-hero/media:/app/includes/shared/media ortussolutions/contentbox
  20. 20. Let’s add our ContentBox-Custom folder into the Image docker run -p 8888:8080 -e 'INSTALL=true' -e 'CFCONFIG_ADMINPASSWORD=guardians' -e "DB_CONNECTION_STRING=jdbc:mysql:// p;characterEncoding=UTF-8&useLegacyDatetimeCode=true" -e '' -e 'DB_USER=starlord' -e 'DB_PASSWORD=starlord' -v c:/www/contentbox-zero-to-hero/media:/app/includes/shared/media -v C:/www/contentbox-zero-to-hero/itb-1/modules_app/contentbox-custom:/app/modules_app/co ntentbox-custom ortussolutions/contentbox
  21. 21. Live coding moment of truth Deploy to the Cloud!!!! Want to try it out, use my link and get $100 in credit to play with
  22. 22. Live coding moment of truth Deploy to the Cloud!!!! First, we need to get the files to the server. Lets just use SSH Copy for now, or FTP, because that’s how it’s done, right? We’ll upload them into /contentbox-zero-to-hero /contentbox-hero-to-zero/media /contentbox-hero-to-zero/itb-1/modules_app/contentbox-custom
  23. 23. Live coding moment of truth Deploy to the Cloud!!!! docker run -p 8888:8080 -e 'INSTALL=true' -e 'CFCONFIG_ADMINPASSWORD=guardians' -e "DB_CONNECTION_STRING=jdbc:mysql:// acterEncoding=UTF-8&useLegacyDatetimeCode=true" -e '' -e 'DB_USER=starlord' -e 'DB_PASSWORD=starlord' -v /contentbox-zero-to-hero/media:/app/includes/shared/media -v /contentbox-zero-to-hero/itb-1/modules_app/contentbox-custom:/app/modules_app/contentbox-custom ortussolutions/contentbox
  24. 24. Clustering your Docker Images That’s what Docker is great for… and Docker Swarm is a great way to get started. Things to Consider Files - Any files you have would need to be persisted to a shared drive between servers, block storage on Digital ocean works great here ( show example ) Sessions - Sessions are usually stored in the server memory, more servers means more memory not the same memory.
  25. 25. Baking your code into Docker Images Having to share your code on every server, or putting it on a shared drive is not a good workflow. Your code should only change when you deploy a new version. Things that change in your app, need to be separated like Media, etc So lets build a docker image with our Content.
  26. 26. Docker File FROM ortussolutions/contentbox COPY modules_app/contentbox-custom /app/modules_app/contentbox-custom
  27. 27. Build a Docker Image with Docker File docker build -t gpickin/itb-docker-demo:20190503.0.1 .
  28. 28. Push our Docker image to Docker Hub docker push gpickin/itb-docker-demo:20190503.0.1
  29. 29. Docker Run with our Built Image locally docker run -p 8888:8080 -e 'INSTALL=true' -e 'CFCONFIG_ADMINPASSWORD=guardians' -e "DB_CONNECTION_STRING=jdbc:mysql:// e&characterEncoding=UTF-8&useLegacyDatetimeCode=true" -e '' -e 'DB_USER=starlord' -e 'DB_PASSWORD=starlord' -v c:/www/contentbox-zero-to-hero/media:/app/includes/shared/media gpickin/itb-docker-demo:20190503.0.1
  30. 30. Docker Run with our Built Image on DO docker run -p 8888:8080 -e 'INSTALL=true' -e 'CFCONFIG_ADMINPASSWORD=guardians' -e "DB_CONNECTION_STRING=jdbc:mysql:// e&characterEncoding=UTF-8&useLegacyDatetimeCode=true" -e '' -e 'DB_USER=starlord' -e 'DB_PASSWORD=starlord' -v /contentbox-zero-to-hero/media:/app/includes/shared/media -v /contentbox-zero-to-hero/itb-1/modules_app/contentbox-custom:/app/modules_app/content box-custom gpickin/itb-docker-demo:20190503.0.1
