Docker Compose Files for MySQL and mongoDb

A docker compose file to setup both a MySQL and MongoDB docker container.

Simple Usage

  1. Go to any project directory

  2. Insert the docker-compose.yml file

  3. Run docker-compose up -d in the directory with the file

  4. Run docker-compose logs -f to see what's happening in the DB

  5. Run docker-compose down to cleanup the containers when no longer needed

all docker-compose commands must be run in the directory with the docker-compose file

Below are specific to which compose you are using.


You can edit the environment variables in the docker-compose.yml file to your liking. They become the root and non-root user credentials. To connect to the MySQL instance client:

$ docker-compose exec mysqlDb mysql -u devuser -p

for the regular user


$ docker-compose exec mysqlDb mysql -p

for the root user.

You'll be prompted for the passwords which are also defined in the docker-compose.yml environment variables section.


Remove the command: mongod --auth if you do not want to deal with authentication and separate users.

To get this up and running with an admin user:

  1. Connect to the one time login to create our admin user:
$ docker-compose exec mongoDb mongo
  1. Switch to the Admin DB and Create a Root user:
use admin

and then

    user: "devadmin",
    pwd: "devadmin",
    roles: [ { role: "root", db: "admin" } ]
  1. Exit the Mongo console.

Now in order to do anything to the MongoDB instance's collections, databases, etc. you must authenticate when logging in:

$ docker-compose exec mongoDb mongo -u devadmin -p devadmin --authenticationDatabase "admin"
