I've set it up multiple times in multiple ways, always a little concerned about security. I've had installed plugins with security flaws and it's just hard to stay on top. Most of the time I've deployed it for internal use inside a firewall.
  
-Having worked at a startup for over 2 years that's heavily invested in docker, I've gotten to know docker really well. Not having had a website for quite a while, I finally ​decide ​to dip my toe in the water again using docker to contain my site.+Having worked at a startup for over 2 years that's heavily invested in docker, I've gotten to know docker really well.

-Bitnami seems to do a very nice job wrapping up applications with persistent data. The documentation is quite good. I had a little trouble turning on "nice links" since they require htaccess and bitnami does a nice job of creating a secure deployment. If you aren't careful you could break their secure implementation,​ which I did at first to figure out what was going on.+====== ​ ======
  
-Letsencrypt is always easy to deploy and I've folded that in. Recently I've leaned towards not using www supporting directs. All folded in for http and https. 
  
 +[[https://​bitnami.com/​stack/​dokuwiki|Bitnami]] seems to do a very nice job wrapping up applications with persistent data and configuration. The documentation is quite good. I had a little trouble turning on "nice links" since these require htaccess, and bitnami does a nice job of creating a secure deployment that you should leverage. If you aren't careful you could break their secure implementation,​ which I did at first trying to figure out what was going on.

 +The persistence,​ of course, is key for easy upgrades of dokuwiki. Just tear down and bring up the new container!
