Dockerizing RT, how to handle WEB presentation?

Hi Dear RT users,

I am able to run RT in a Docker container, not in the most efficient way tough…

Apache and Postfix are running in the same container.

What is the best way to have an Nginx or Apache container, serving RT Fastcgi from the container running RT?

Thanks in advance,


I’m on the same path, but currently I going for a slightly different architecture.

I am putting RT and postfix in one container. Postfix needs to run rt-mailgate, and I didn’t want multiple RT installations. RT is running a Starlet server:

/opt/rt4/sbin/rt-server --server Starlet --port 8888

And then an Nginx with a proxy_pass configuration in another container.

I have not yet stress-tested this, so don’t take my word for it!

There are a few things on github I have taken inspiration from:


reuteras/docker-rt seems to still be active and there’s also .

In addition, BPS seems to have images for testing:
