How to connect to mysql using ipv6 from wordpress
I’m trying to connect to a MySQL host that only expose an IPv6 address from WordPress running in Docker. I try to add the IP to the host like this:
$ docker run --name some-wordpress -e WORDPRESS_DB_HOST=<my_ipv6_addr> \ -e WORDPRESS_DB_USER=... -e WORDPRESS_DB_PASSWORD=... -d wordpress
<my_ipv6_addr is the IPv6 address to the MySQL host. But wordpress fails to connect with the following error message:
Warning: mysqli::mysqli(): (HY000/2002): Invalid argument in - on line 10
Is there a way to connect WordPress to MySQL in Docker using IPv6?
