Where is Wordpress on Docker?

Hi there!

I am new to this stuff. I have read and googled like crazy for 2 days and am at a standstill. I did the one click docker install and then did a Wordpress install using the tutum/wordpress.

I can access wordpress at my IP address and install it but now I need to do things like SFTP and change the .htaccess, etc. I can’t figure out where the wordpress files are. I have connected with SSH and SFTP but am not finding a var/www

Thank you,

I’m not sure about docker and wordpress only… usually the docker file are in /var/lib/docker/ so you could have a look there.

However, if I may suggest, you may want to host wordpress on digital ocean and docker via dokku, so you can deploy directly via git (and gives you the ability to deploy a lot more projects, creating a little PAAS just for you.)

I wrote some instructions how to do that few weeks ago here:
