I was looking for a way to get my old raspberry pi to be useful( the original pi that is) and i found an easy way to do what i wanted and that was to install Docker so i can use experiment with wordpress and other cms. I'm posting as i thought it might be useful for someone?

Here's a bit about Docker if you don't know what it is:-

What the heck is Docker and why would I use it?

Docker simplifies the packaging, distribution, installation and execution of (complex) applications.

In this context, applications are:

These kinds of applications usually consist of many components which need to be installed and configured. This is often a time consuming and frustrating experience for users.

Docker allows administrators or developers to package these applications into something called containers. Containers are self-contained, preconfigured packages that a user can fetch and run with just a single command. By keeping different software components separated in containers they can also be easily updated or removed without influencing each other. There are many more advantages of using Docker; the details of which can be found in the official Docker Documentation.

The only thing I use my Pi for is logging all my router stats from DSLSTATS and FTPing them to my NAS.

I use mine for Pi-hole (best thing its used for so far!)

If I can get docker installed and running a program i need, then i thing I will be a very happy man.
