Docker installation on Synology Diskstation

Post by lukasspy » Fri Aug 16, 2019 4:07 pm

Hi there,

the Synology Diskstation has a Docker app. I pulled the official dockerfile. Starting it up works just fine, but with SQLlite.
So I added the variables for mysql. I created the database, user, password. mysql is provided by MariaDB10 on the Diskstation.
The port is 3307 and the socket is /run/mysqld/mysqld10.sock or /run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
So my envirenment variables are:

MAYAN_DATABASE_ENGINE = django.db.backends.mysql

When I start up the container with the message.
django.db.utils.OperationalError: (2002, 'Can\'t connect to local MySQL server through socket \'/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock\' (2 "No such file or directory")')

=> i suppose that this is because the socket is located at /run/mysqld/mysqld.sock and not /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock ?!?!?!

when I try to use instead of localhost I get the following message
django.db.utils.OperationalError: (2003, 'Can\'t connect to MySQL server on \'\' (111 "Connection refused")')

I hope anyone can help me here.
Is there a way to add the socket as a variable MAYAN_DATABASE_SOCKET or something like that?

Please help me :-)

Thanks in advance

(I read the other question about the synology diskstation. I think it is the same problem, but I hope that anyone can help me, since I added some more information about the errors .. )

A socket is just the term for ip + port

port 3307

What your error message is saying is that it's looking at the ip you listed and the port, and it's not there. What you can do is go to your database container and see what port it's listening on as you'll want to double check that it's actually 3307.
