MySQL on Docker.
Includes a bunch of cool features such as:
- Exporting volumes so your data persists.
- Not running as root.
- Printing log output.
- Setting a root password.
- Creating a user and database.
- Passing extra parameters to mysqld.
Here's how it works:
$ docker run -d -p 3306:3306 -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=xehVg1IpVhEmlwRMG orchardup/mysql da809981545f $ mysql -h 127.0.0.1 -u root -p Enter password: Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g. Your MySQL connection id is 1 Server version: 5.5.34-0ubuntu0.12.04.1-log (Ubuntu) Copyright (c) 2000, 2013, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.

Type '\c' to clear the current input statement. mysql>
(Example assumes MySQL client is installed on Docker host.)
