Terminology and details; php to container
Posted on 2016-08-08
I have a rather simple php app which does nothing more than accept authenticated connections, then inserts data being sent into a db. Nothing more. No front end, no back end, just a few php files.
I need to convert this part into a container so that it can be more portable, more easily moved around, added into more servers without having to build complete Linux servers just for this task. For example, stick on on Amazon.
What I am asking for is terminology, possibly tools, links, leads. What do I need to look for when wanting to do this? Is there a term for converting a php app to a container? And, are there tools that already exist or is this something that will need to be programmed.
