Adminer is an open-source database management tool through a web browser. It supports MySQL, MariaDB, SQLite, PostgreSQL, and various other database servers.
This tutorial explains how to install Adminer inside a Docker container in the Linux. Commands have been tested on Ubuntu.
Make sure you have installed Docker in your system. If you are using Ubuntu, installation instructions can be found in the post.
You also need to have a running MySQL container. Instructions can be found in the post.
- Host network
Run the following command to create a container for Adminer that uses host network:
docker run -d --name=adminer --restart=always --network=host \
-e ADMINER_DEFAULT_SERVER=127.0.0.1 \
MySQL container should run on host network as well.
- User-defined bridge network
User-defined bridge network can be used for listening on different port. By default, Adminer service is listening on port 8080. It can be changed with
docker network create app-net
docker run -d --name=adminer --restart=always --network=app-net \
-p 8081:8080 \
-e ADMINER_DEFAULT_SERVER=mysql \
MySQL container should run on the same user-defined bridge network as well.
Note: When user-defined bridge network is used, don't forget to change
ADMINER_DEFAULT_SERVER. It specifies MySQL container name.
Open a web browser and go to
<IP_ADDRESS> is the IP address of the system. Provide username and password to log in to database server.
To completely remove Adminer, remove its container:
docker rm --force adminer
Remove Adminer image:
docker rmi adminer
If a user-defined bridge network was created, you can delete it as follows:
docker network rm app-net
