    If it is not for the production environment and is for local testing only then the simplest way to make it run is

    sudo chmod -R 777 /data/mysql

    This command is basically giving read and write permissions to all users for mysql folder.

    Please let us know if this worked for you.

    The permissions are wrong on the /data/mysql folder, so the mysql user in the container is unable to write to the directory. To fix this, you can either find the uid of the mysql user in the container and give it permissions to access the directory, or use a data container.

    To find the uid, run:

    docker run dockerfile/mysql id -u mysql

    Then you can do something like sudo chown ID /data/mysql (where id is the UID) to give access to the mysql user.

    To set up a data container see the official docs.

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