Will v5 RC be available as an official Docker image?

Do you intend to release a Docker image of the 5.0.0 RC1, and whatever may follow?



I do hope so as the Docker image is incredibly helpful for us whilst we continue to evaluate ES.

Thank you,


I just modified the Dockerfile from (found on docker hub) with the info in the blog/announcement and it seems to work correctly. I’ve attached the necessary files and dockerfile.

Just run extract and docker build -t es-5 . from inside the folder.

Hey all,

We’re doing a bunch of Docker support improvements right now, so expect proper RC support and much more pretty soon :slight_smile:

That's good to hear Chris. I'll keep an eye on the blog.

In the meantime, Denny's Dockerfile did the trick for me :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot Denny, that worked a treat :slight_smile:

I must learn Docker…

They did a pretty good job on scripting the Dockerfile which made the modification very straight forward. The one suggestion I’d make is to parameterize a few of the variables to allow using --builld-arg for future versions

Can you put up a github issue on that? I am sure others here have read it as well but an issue is more actionable.

on the main github or on eventstore-docker?
