docker-moving container to another server

I have a running container, going through edits, changes, and i need to move this to a new server.


First, commit (ref)

docker commit <containerid>  myimages/lamp:v1.1

You can see the list of images that you have with “docker images.”

Save to a file(ref)

sudo docker save -o <imagefile.tar> imageid

Transfer the imagefile.tar to the new server.

Load them back (ref)

docker load -i <path to image tar file>
docker tag <Image-ID> myimages/lamp:v1.1

Run back.

– elasticdump – nodejs (link)

– – monitor real memory utilization (github link)

Memory tuning

GC Tuning: In Practice

Stuck shards

mysqldump script (per tables)


# This is PER TABLE backup. Each table will be backed up individually

## to enable passwordless mysqdump, put your password in /etc/mysql/[mysqld|percona|maria].conf.d/client.conf
# [client]
# user=""
# pass=""

DATE=`date +%Y%m%d`
OPTS="--max_allowed_packet=512M "

tables=`mysql -e "use $THEDB; show tables;" | tr -d "| " | grep -v -E "^Tables_in_" `

for table in $tables; do
STAGEDDATE=`date +%Y%m%d`
echo "Dumping table : " $table
mysqldump -a $OPTS $THEDB $table > $OUTPUT/$THEDB-$DATE/$STAGEDDATE-$table.sql

echo "Backup done at " $OUTPUT/$THEDB-$DATE

Web server tuning (apache and nginx)

Key points

  • enable http2 & change mpm prefork to event
  • php-fpm


Enable http2

On apache + prefork to event –

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/apache2
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install php7.0-fpm 
sudo a2enmod proxy_fcgi setenvif
sudo a2enconf php7.0-fpm 
sudo a2dismod php7.0 
sudo a2dismod mpm_prefork 
sudo a2enmod mpm_event 
sudo service apache2 restart
sudo service php7.0-fpm restart

Add in <VirtualHost>… </VirtualHost> for individual site, or in apache.conf file, for global settings.

Protocols h2 h2c http/1.1

sudo a2enmod http2
sudo service apache2 restart

Nginx – Need to compile nginx with http2 module
./configure –with-compat –add-dynamic-module=../ModSecurity-nginx –with-http_ssl_module –with-stream_ssl_module –prefix=/etc/nginx –with-http_v2_module

** mod_security for nginx, follow this :
