Problem with phpmyadmin and tutum/mysql container

(Hellb0y77) #1

Hi, i installed with success the tutum/mysql container but with phpmyadmin i have this error:

2003 Cannot log in to the MySQL server

From console i enter with:

mysql -u admin -p -h (work perfectly)

someone uses tutum / mysql with phphmyadmin?

Which image are you using for phpmyadmin?

Ok, I’ve reproduced a setup that works for me:

bash-3.2$ docker run -d -p 3306:3306 tutum/mysql


bash-3.2$ docker logs 2ea6d94467899643c017ef814b44e5ac9baef4584f06f447b6482fd1e11a3e18

You can now connect to this MySQL Server using:

    mysql -uadmin -pTR6bHQMNnxTs -h<host> -P<port>

Please remember to change the above password as soon as possible!

MySQL user 'root' has no password but only allows local connections

The phpmyadmin container is not using the localhost port mapped to your host, its using a private docker --link.

Does that help?
