PHP Milton Keynes - Episode 8 // Deploying PHP Apps with Dokku


Deploying PHP Apps with Dokku by Matt Brunt @Brunty

Sometimes, an advanced, multi-stage build pipeline is what's required for your project. But other times, it can feel like overkill. It can be a significant time investment, as well as often requiring specialist knowledge to implement and maintain.

Maybe you just want to be able to get an app up and running on a production server with minimal effort and without too much specialist knowledge and up-front requirements.

In this session, you'll learn what Dokku is, what it enables us to do, where it fits in the deployment ecosystem, and you'll see how a (Symfony/Laravel) application can be configured, deployed and ready-to-rock on a production server running Dokku in less than 20 minutes.

We also have a free JetBrains license to raffle off! The license can be used for an individual annual subscription to PhpStorm or any other of their excellent products (

We are also looking for speakers, for future events. If you'd like to do so, or even just to share an idea, get in touch with one of our organisers.
