Below are configuration recipes that can be used with MediaWiki core's Docker development environment.

docker compose stacks can be extended with a docker-compose.override.yml file that resides in the same directory (at the root of MediaWiki core, in our case) as the docker-compose.yml file. Any configuration present in that file will override the defaults in docker-compose.yml. More documentation on overriding works is available at

After updating your override file, run docker compose down followed by docker compose up -d.
