Default ports

Docker Description
3306 MySQL listening Port

Usage

1. Listen on loopback interface only

$ docker run -i \
    -p 127.0.0.1:3306:3306 \
    -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=my-secret-pw \
    -t cytopia/mysql-5.6

# Access MySQL from your host computer
$ mysql --user=root --password=my-secret-pw --host=127.0.0.1 -e 'show databases;'

2. Enable logging

Enable logging and mount the log directory to your host to ~tmp/mysql-log

$ docker run -i \
    -p 127.0.0.1:3306:3306 \
    -v ~tmp/mysql-log:/var/log/mysql \
    -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=my-secret-pw \
    -e MYSQL_GENERAL_LOG=1 \
    -t cytopia/mysql-5.6

# Access MySQL from your host computer
$ mysql --user=root --password=my-secret-pw --host=127.0.0.1 -e 'show databases;'

3. Mount MySQL socket to the host

Use MySQL socket for localhost connections through the socket. No need to expose the MySQL port to the host in this case.

$ docker run -i \
    -v ~tmp/mysql-sock:/var/sock/mysqld \
    -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=my-secret-pw \
    -t cytopia/mysql-5.6

# Access MySQL from your host computer via socket
$ mysql --user=root --password=my-secret-pw --socket=/var/sock/mysqld/mysqld.sock -e 'show databases;'

4. Overwrite configuration

You can also add any configuration settings prior startup to MySQL.

# Create local config with buffer overwrite
$ printf "[mysqld]\n%s\n" "key_buffer = 500M" > ~/tmp/mysqld_config/buffer.cnf

$ docker run -i \
    -p 127.0.0.1:3306:3306 \
    -v ~/tmp/mysqld_config:/etc/mysql/conf.d \
    -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=my-secret-pw \
    -t cytopia/mysql-5.6
