MySQL Setup using Docker

I’m trying to create a setup where when I do a “docker run” off a Dockerfile that I’ve created, docker will install and setup mysql, and then create a database for me to use.

Below is my simple docker file that pulls from the existing dockerfile/mysql

    RUN bash -c "/usr/bin/mysqld_safe &" && \
      sleep 5 && \
      mysql -u root -e "CREATE DATABASE mydb"

    It seems to run, but when I connect to the DB (using the IP I received from the boot2docker ip command), the database doesnt’ exist.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Note: I had originally tried to run all three of those commands in separate RUN statements, but that didn’t work. Explanation of why here.

    You should take example on the dockerfile/mysql Dockerfile which has the following RUN statement:

    RUN echo "mysqld_safe &" > /tmp/config \
        && echo "mysqladmin --silent --wait=30 ping || exit 1" >> /tmp/config \
        && echo "mysql -e 'GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO \"root\"@\"%\" WITH GRANT OPTION;'" >> /tmp/config \
        && bash /tmp/config \
        && rm -f /tmp/config

    In your case you would put in your Dockerfile:

    RUN echo "mysqld_safe &" > /tmp/config \
        && echo "mysqladmin --silent --wait=30 ping || exit 1" >> /tmp/config \
        && echo "mysql -u root -e \"CREATE DATABASE mydb\"" >> /tmp/config \
        && bash /tmp/config \
        && rm -f /tmp/config

    I would advise either using the standard mysql container image or borrow from its dockerfile

    It uses environment variables to control the database name and admin credentials.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
