Hi@akhtar,

As we know mysql database requires user name and password, when we try to login. That is why in docker, mysql image requires some environment variable to login in that image. Use the below given command.

$ docker run -it -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=abc --name mysql mysql:latest

For more information, go through the below given link.
