How to don't start entrypoint command on "docker-compose up"?



  • I have multiple Docker containers in a project and I use docker-compose up -d to start containers.

    This is my docker-compose.yml file:

    version: "3"
    services:
      httpd:
        image: 'nginx:stable-alpine'
        ports:
          - '80:80'
        volumes:
          - ./laravel:/var/www/html
          - ./.docker-config/nginx/nginx.conf:/etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf:ro
        depends_on:
          - php
          - mysql
        networks:
          - backstage
    

    php:
    build:
    context: ./.docker-config/dockerfiles
    dockerfile: php.dockerfile
    volumes:
    - ./laravel:/var/www/html:delegated
    networks:
    - backstage

    mysql:
    image: mysql:5.7
    env_file:
    - ./.docker-config/mysql/mysql.env
    ports:
    - '33060:3306'
    networks:
    - backstage

    composer:
    build:
    context: ./.docker-config/dockerfiles
    dockerfile: composer.dockerfile
    volumes:
    - ./laravel:/var/www/html
    networks:
    - backstage

    artisan:
    build:
    context: ./.docker-config/dockerfiles
    dockerfile: php.dockerfile
    volumes:
    - ./laravel:/var/www/html
    entrypoint: ["php", "/var/www/html/artisan"]
    depends_on:
    - mysql
    networks:
    - backstage

    npm:
    image: node:14-alpine
    working_dir: /var/www/html
    entrypoint: ["npm"]
    volumes:
    - ./laravel:/var/www/html
    networks:
    - backstage

    phpunit:
    build:
    context: ./.docker-config/dockerfiles
    dockerfile: php.dockerfile
    volumes:
    - ./laravel:/var/www/html
    entrypoint: ["vendor/bin/phpunit"]
    networks:
    - backstage

    As you see, I defined entrypoint for the phpunit container, but I don't want to start the phpunit when I run docker-compose up -d.

    How can I do that?



  • You can scale service that you don't want to run to 0

    docker-compose up --scale phpunit=0 -d And it will not start container for phpunit service as stated in https://docs.docker.com/compose/reference/up/

    You can also check https://docs.docker.com/compose/profiles/ for more options on excluding certain services in your docker-compose file.
