asked on

accessing mysql instance withing Windows Docker Container

I followed the steps here https://hub.docker.com/r/nanoserver/mysql/  to install mySQL and PHP, however, I need the ability to access the MySQL instance via port 3306 via MySQL WorkBench..  To do this I would imagine I need to allow remote access via the mysql command ...  But.. when I type 'mysql -u root -p' via the folder that mysql is running in (connected to session via Enter-PSSession <type-here-containerID> -RunAsAdministrator it just hangs and nothing happens.  Any ideas?

Mysql.exe doesn't give an error.. It just hangs there.. I'll check to see if any processes are running on port 3306
