A Docker Image for MySQL
Full Description

MySQL Dockerfile

A Dockerfile that produces a Docker Image for MySQL.

MySQL version

The master branch currently hosts MySQL 5.6.

Different versions of MySQL are located at the github repo branches.

Usage

Build the image

To create the image frodenas/mysql, execute the following command on the docker-mysql folder:

$ docker build -t frodenas/mysql .

Run the image

To run the image and bind to host port 3306:

$ docker run -d --name mysql -p 3306:3306 frodenas/mysql

The first time you run your container, a new user admin with all privileges will be created with a random password.
To get the password, check the logs of the container by running:

docker logs <CONTAINER_ID>

You will see an output like the following:

========================================================================
MySQL User: "admin"
MySQL Password: "mKHBsVb2i7OrY26K"
========================================================================

Credentials

If you want to preset credentials instead of a random generated ones, you can set the following environment
variables:

  • MYSQL_USERNAME to set a specific username
  • MYSQL_PASSWORD to set a specific password

On this example we will preset our custom username and password:

$ docker run -d \
    --name mysql \
    -p 3306:3306 \
    -e MYSQL_USERNAME=myusername \
    -e MYSQL_PASSWORD=mypassword \
    frodenas/mysql

Databases

If you want to create a database at container's boot time, you can set the following environment variables:

  • MYSQL_DBNAME to create a database

On this example we will preset our custom username and password and we will create a database:

$ docker run -d \
    --name mysql \
    -p 3306:3306 \
    -e MYSQL_USERNAME=myusername \
    -e MYSQL_PASSWORD=mypassword \
    -e MYSQL_DBNAME=mydb \
    frodenas/mysql

Persist database data

The MySQL server is configured to store data in the /data directory inside the container. You can map the
container's /data volume to a volume on the host so the data becomes independent of the running container:

$ mkdir -p /tmp/mysql
$ docker run -d \
    --name mysql \
    -p 3306:3306 \
    -v /tmp/mysql:/data \
    frodenas/mysql
