Connecting to MySQL in container

For my pipeline, I am pulling down the docker image tutum/lamp  to provide a full stack to test against. One of my pipeline steps is to create the various databases I need. However, the commands I am issuing fail with this message:

$ mysql --user=root --port=3306 --host=localhost < sql_scripts/create_app_dbs.sql

ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)

 

If I pull this docker image locally, run it, and ssh into it, I can execute mysql --user=root --port=3306 --host=localhost and connect without issue. Stumped as to why this is happening. From the documentation, it seems like the steps should be running inside the container, but this error makes me feel like it might be running outside of the container.

 

EDIT: Digging in deeper, it appears the docker run invocation is different than what I do locally. When I run it, a series of scripts initiated by the Dockerfile brings up MySQL, but the pipelines process does not run these.

You are right about Bitbucket Pipelines not running run.sh. You can run it inside of your build instead.

Try the following bitbucket-pipelines.yml:

image: tutum/lamp
pipelines:
    default:
        - step:
            script:
                - bash /run.sh & # Start the MySQL, run.sh is located in root directory
                - sleep 20 # So that MySQL has time to start up.
                - mysql --user=root --port=3306 --host=localhost < sql_scripts/create_app_dbs.sql

Had tried running run.sh in various ways, but the bash in front finally did the trick.

Much obliged.

 

I suppose you could execute those same series of scripts yourself in your pipelines yml?
