Note: This image is now deprecated. Please use the official mysql image instead.

MySQL on Docker.

Includes a bunch of cool features such as:

  • Exporting volumes so your data persists.
  • Not running as root.
  • Printing log output.
  • Setting a root password.
  • Creating a user and database.
  • Passing extra parameters to mysqld.

Here's how it works:

$ docker run -d -p 3306:3306 -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=xehVg1IpVhEmlwRMG orchardup/mysql
$ mysql -h -u root -p
Enter password:
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 1
Server version: 5.5.34-0ubuntu0.12.04.1-log (Ubuntu)

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.


(Example assumes MySQL client is installed on Docker host.)

Environment variables

  • MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD: The password for the root user, set every time the server starts. Defaults to a blank password, which is handy for development, but you should set this to something in production.
  • MYSQL_DATABASE: A database to automatically create if it doesn't exist. If not provided, does not create a database.
  • MYSQL_USER: A user to create that has access to the database specified by MYSQL_DATABASE.
  • MYSQL_PASSWORD: The password for MYSQL_USER. Defaults to a blank password.
  • MYSQLD_ARGS: extra parameters to pass to the mysqld process

I got error while starting container via 'fig up':

I also have issues with build bjahh8dma8jmcsicdja8tw8 while an container image built from the project repo is working fine.

Another thought, it might be worth having a "stable" build tag and a "latest" build tag. Just a thought :)

Something about the most recent build (build id bjahh8dma8jmcsicdja8tw8) is messed up for me. If I pull tip from your project repo and build it, then I have no problems. Was there an error building?

I have a question, I see that in your script run there is the possibility to add a user, but if the server is running how to add a user without stopping the server?
