Setup containerized database

MySQL

We usually use the Percona fork of the MySQL database.

Use the following commands to set up the environment variables; make sure to replace the values if needed:
export DOCKER_NAME=percona;
export ROOT_PWD=root;
export MYSQL_PORT=3306;
To setup the database, perform the following steps:
  1. docker run --name $DOCKER_NAME -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=$ROOT_PWD -d -p $MYSQL_PORT:3306 percona:8.0;

  2. docker exec -it $DOCKER_NAME mysql -uroot -p$ROOT_PWD;

  3. CREATE DATABASE corteza;

  4. CREATE USER 'corteza'@'172.17.0.1' IDENTIFIED BY 'corteza';

  5. GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON corteza.* TO 'corteza'@'172.17.0.1';

  6. FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

Use the following template to construct the DB_DSN .env variable:
DB_DSN="corteza:corteza@tcp(localhost:$MYSQL_PORT)/corteza?collation=utf8mb4_general_ci"

PostgreSQL

We usually use the official PostgreSQL image.

Use the following commands to set up the environment variables; make sure to replace the values if needed:
export DOCKER_NAME=pgsql2;
export ROOT_PWD=root;
export PGSQL_PORT=5432;
To setup the database, perform the following steps:
  1. docker run --name $DOCKER_NAME -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=$ROOT_PWD -d -p $PGSQL_PORT:5432 postgres:13;

  2. docker exec -it $DOCKER_NAME psql -U postgres;

  3. CREATE DATABASE corteza;

  4. CREATE USER corteza WITH PASSWORD 'corteza';

  5. GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON DATABASE corteza TO corteza;

Use the following template to construct the DB_DSN .env variable:
DB_DSN="postgres://corteza:corteza@localhost:$PGSQL_PORT/corteza?sslmode=disable"
