The docker image will execute files with extensions.sh,.sql and.sql.gz that are found in /docker-entrypoint-initdb.d in alphabetical order. In a lot of docker image, the sql scripts found in the /docker-entrypoint-initdb.d/ folder. You can populate mysql services by mounting a SQL dump into that directory.

What are we trying to do ?

  • Run MySQL as a docker container in Local
  • Connecting to it from command line.
  • Connecting to it from DBeaver.

What should we have already ?

  • DBeaver (Or any other Application that you use to connect to MySQL)

How can I start ?


Run the following command (only after reading the explanation below and substituting it with your own values)

Lets breakdown this command into parts

  • docker :- The command to invoke docker
  • run :- To create a docker container uses the mysql at the end to determine which docker image it should run. if mysql image is not available in local the latest will be downloaded from docker hub.
  • -p :- Tells to map the port 3306 of localhost to 3306 port of the container
  • –name :- Sets the name of the container
  • -e :- Sets the environment variable. In this case sets the MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD
  • -d :- Tells to run docker as detcached (not attached to the current terminal but in background)

You can see a list of running containers using the following command


1. Open the command line inside the container using the following command.
docker exec -it <containername> /bin/sh

2. Type the following commands to login to the instance

3. Enter the password to login

4. If every thing went well we will see that the cursor is mysql>

5. Type some commands to test it.


1. Open Dbeaver

2. Add a new Connection

3. Select MySQL from the list

4. Click Next and fill in the password, you can test if everything works fine using the Test Connection option.

5. If everything went well the test connection will succeed and you can click finish. On doing that you will be able to see the connection in the Database Navigator pane.

6. Sometimes you get an error public key retrieval is not allowed, in this case go Driver properties tab and in that tab you will be able to see a allowPublicKeyRetrieval property, set that to true. ( Note that AllowPublicKeyRetrieval=True could allow a malicious proxy to perform a MITM attack to get the plaintext password, so it is False by default and must be explicitly enabled.)


Start a docker container using docker start <containername>

Stop a docker container using docker stop <containername>

Restart a docker container using docker restart <containername>

Remove a stopped docker container using docker container rm <containername>

Step-by-step tutorial on connecting to SQL Server with DBeaver.

Once you've installed DBeaver, you'll probably want to connect to a database. below are instructions for connecting to SQL Server using DBeaver on a Mac.

Note that, although this tutorial uses SQL Server, DBeaver supports many different database management systems.

  1. Launch DBeaver

    Click on the DBeaver icon (either in your Launchpad or the Applications folder) to launch the DBeaver application.

  2. Launch the New Connection Wizard

    If this is the first time you've launched DBeaver, you'll probably be prompted with the Create new connection dialog.

    Expand the SQL Server node, select jTDS driver, and click Next >.

    For this tutorial I selected jTDS driver, but by all means select another driver if you prefer.

    If the Create new connection wizard doesn't automatically appear when you open DBeaver, go to Database > New Connection to initiate this wizard.

  3. Enter Connection Settings

    Enter the connection settings for the SQL Server instance that you'd like to connect to.

    If the SQL Server instance is running on your local machine, use localhost.

    Also click Test Connection to see if there are going to be any problems with the connection or not.

  4. Download Driver Files (if required)

    The connection wizard will tell you if you need to download any driver files. If you do, select the file/s and click Download.

  5. Success Dialog Box

    Once the driver has downloaded, a Success dialog is displayed. Click OK.

    This dialog box would have appeared at the previous step if you didn't need to download a driver.

  6. Continue with the Connection

    Now that the driver has been downloaded, click Next > to continue with the connection.

  7. Network Settings

    This step gives you the option of entering any network settings that are required to access the SQL Server.

    In this case, the SQL Server is running locally, so leave the default settings and click Next >.

  8. Finish

    Change any settings as required. For this tutorial, I left them all at the default settings.

    Click Finish to create the connection.

That's it. We just made a new connection to SQL Server with DBeaver.

The DBeaver interface is now displayed:
