#StackBounty: #ubuntu #nginx #docker Update fastcgi_pass in nginx conf with docker container IP on startup

Bounty: 50

We have the following setup:

We host multiple website on an Ubuntu server, most of them running PHP 5.6. One of them, runs inside a Docker container with PHP 7.1.

The nginx conf for this website has the following line:


which points to the IP of the docker container, which we get from

docker inspect <container>|grep IP

The problem is whenever the system restarts, the container gets a new IP assigned and we have to copy it into the nginx conf again and restart nginx. How could we do this automatically?

Thank you!
