If the QUEXF_DB_NAME specified does not already exist on the given MySQL server, it will be created automatically upon startup of the quexf container, provided that the QUEXF_DB_USER specified has the necessary permissions to create it.

If you'd like to be able to access the instance from the host without the container's IP, standard port mappings can be used:

$ docker run --name some-quexf --link some-mysql:mysql -p 8080:80 \
     -v /location-of-forms:/forms -d acspri/quexf

Then, access it via http://localhost:8080 or http://host-ip:8080 in a browser.

If you'd like to use an external database instead of a linked mysql container, specify the hostname and port with QUEXF_DB_HOST along with the password in QUEXF_DB_PASSWORD and the username in QUEXF_DB_USER (if it is something other than root):

$ docker run --name some-quexf -e QUEXF_DB_HOST= \
    -v /location-of-forms:/forms \
    -e QUEXF_DB_USER=... -e QUEXF_DB_PASSWORD=... -d acspri/quexf

... via docker-compose

Example docker-compose.yml for quexf:

version: '2'


    image: acspri/quexf
      - 8080:80
      - /location-of-forms:/forms
      QUEXF_DB_PASSWORD: example
      QUEXF_ADMIN_PASSWORD: password

    image: mariadb
      MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD: example

Run docker-compose up, wait for it to initialize completely, and visit http://localhost:8080 or http://host-ip:8080.
