Full Description


Base docker image to run a PostgreSQL database server


To create the image tutum/postgresql, execute the following command on the tutum-docker-postgresql folder:

docker build -t tutum/postgresql .

To run the image and bind to port 5432:

docker run -d -p 5432:5432 tutum/postgresql

The first time that you run your container, a new user postgres with all privileges
will be created in PostgreSQL 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 PostgreSQL Server using:

    psql -h <host> -p <port> --username=postgres
and enter the password 'HHrUZyI6ubWF' when prompted

Please remember to change the above password as soon as possible!

In this case, HHrUZyI6ubWF is the password assigned to the postgres user.


Setting a specific password for the admin account

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

docker run -d -p 5432:5432 -e POSTGRES_PASS="mypass" tutum/postgresql
