Connect To Custom MySQL Instance


I am using a custom MySQL image on the pipeline:

name: <dockerusername>/mysql-unit-test-db:latest  

I am not having issues getting the image from DockerHub, that works fine, but when I try to access MySql from my steps it will not allow me to connect.  (When I run the image locally I can connect just fine).  I have tried to connect a couple of different ways:


 ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (111)

mysql -h -u root -ppass -e "SHOW DATABASES;"

 ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (111)

I have also tried to run a script that waits for MySql to start up but that has not worked either.  Is what I'm trying to do even possible?


The reason for using a custom MySql image is that I need to adjust "lower_case_table_names" and that is not possible using services.
