MariaDB 10 - ~60Mb Alpine UTF-8
Full Description

MariaDB 10 Docker Image (Alpine ~100Mb)

Felling like supporting me in my projects use donate button. Thank You!

This is a MariaDB 10 in a Docker million12/mariadb.

IMPORTANT: Migarted to Alpine Linux which shrinked the image from 1024M to ~120Mb

Note: be aware that, by default in this container, MariaDB is configured to use ~1GB memory (innodb_buffer_pool_size in tuning.cnf). If you try to run it on node with less memory, it will fail.

Please use tags on Docker Hub for different versions.


Run the image as daemon and bind it to port 3306:

docker run -d \
  -p 3306:3306 \

Run the image as daemon and specify MariaDB version 10.2:

docker run -d \

The first time that you run your container, a new user admin with all privileges will be created in MariaDB 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:

    You can now connect to this MariaDB Server using:

        mysql -uadmin -pCoFlnc3ZBS58 -h<host>

    Please remember to change the above password as soon as possible!       
    MariaDB user 'root' has no password but only allows local connections

In this case, CoFlnc3ZBS58 is the password assigned to the admin user.

Custom Password for user admin

If you want to use a preset password instead of a random generated one, you can set the environment variable MARIADB_PASS to your specific password when running the container:

docker run -d \
  -p 3306:3306 \
  -e MARIADB_PASS="mypass" \

Data volumes

MariaDB stores data in /var/lib/mysql location. Mount a volume
to that location - below is an example with docker-compose how to do that:

version: '2'


    image: million12/mariadb:latest
      - dbdata:/var/lib/mysql
