Well, lets 1st create a docker container running my sql (assumes you installed docker).
Here’s how to install a mysql database named example – uses an existing docker container fromt the public registry named atlas-db. Better change your password
docker run --name atlas-db -p 3306:3306 -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=pass -e MYSQL_DATABASE=example mysql
this may hang on you as it is running the container interactive – so you will have to open a new terminal and do this:
docker ps ... lists containers pick your container running "mysql" docker exec -it [containerID] /bin/bash mysql -u root -p -- in mysql databases and schemas are synonymous - yikes! show databases;
