MySQL Question

Using Docker I get the error: "SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] No such file or directory"

I'm using Docker to create a container to test my web app built on PHP and MySQL on my Mac. My PHP app is built using Fat-Free Framework for MVC and routing. I have two Dockerfiles, one for MySQL and one for PHP. I've used test Docker applications successfully, so I believe my images are installed correctly.

The main part of the error:

Internal Server Error

SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] No such file or directory

[fatfree/lib/DB/SQL.php:466] PDO->__construct('mysql:host=;port=3306;dbname=robohome','root','password',array(1002=>'SET NAMES utf8;'))
[fatfree/app/Controllers/Controller.php:24] DB\SQL->__construct('mysql:host=;port=3306;dbname=robohome','root','password')

Note, if I connect using
instead of
I get a slightly different error that says:
SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] Connection refused

My PHP Dockerfile:

FROM php:5.6-apache

RUN docker-php-ext-install mysqli pdo pdo_mysql
RUN a2enmod rewrite

My MySQL Dockerfile:

FROM mysql:5.7


COPY ./schema.sql /docker-entrypoint-initdb.d/

file where the error mentions line 24:


namespace Controllers;

class Controller
protected $f3;
protected $db;

public function __construct()
$f3 = \Base::instance();
$this->f3 = $f3;

$mysqlServerName = $f3->get("MYSQL_SERVERNAME");
$mysqlDatabseName = $f3->get("MYSQL_DBNAME");

//$container = \DI\ContainerBuilder::buildDevContainer(); <-Not used currently

//Below is line 24 referred to in the error
$db = new \DB\SQL(

$this->db = $db;

values are pulled from an

MYSQL_SERVERNAME = "localhost" <-This is what I've tried changing to
MYSQL_PASSWORD = "password"
MYSQL_DBNAME = "robohome"

My Docker compose file:

version: '2'

build: ./docker/php
- 80:80
- .:/var/www/html/
- db
build: ./docker/mysql
- 3306

I run this by doing
docker-compose up --build -d
. The output I can then get from
docker ps

f35066a16586 robohomeweb_mysql "" 3 minutes ago Up 2 seconds>3306/tcp robohomeweb_mysql_1
86d34eb34583 robohomeweb_php "apache2-foreground" 3 minutes ago Up 2 seconds>80/tcp robohomeweb_php_1

If I run in the foreground instead, I get the following output:

From my research, I've tried connecting using both
since they're technically treated differently. It could also be something related to trying to talk via sockets instead of TCP. Ideally I would like a solution that I can bake into my Dockerfiles so I don't have to worry about remembering commands or how I did something.


As someone pointed out in the comments, the docker-compose file you provided is very relevant to your question.

The documentation for links in docker-compose files says

Containers for the linked service will be reachable at a hostname identical to the alias, or the service name if no alias was specified.

In your case, the database container is named db, so resolving db host from the PHP container should point you at the MySQL container. Replacing localhost with db in your config file should allow the PHP container to connect to MySQL.
