Hands on

To create a container:

docker run -d --name maria-alpine santec/mariadb-alpine:10.1

I build it in this way:

docker build --no-cache -t santec/mariadb-alpine:latest -t santec/mariadb-alpine:10.1 .


If you find a bug, you can report it on GitHub. I will fix it when I have the time, if it requires a reasonable effort.

You can also buy support. I will provide you with all the necessary help on this image, MariaDB and Docker. I will also fix the bugs that cause a damage to your activities or will find a good workaround for them.
