Where to find official MySQL container images ?

If you are deploying MySQL on containers, one of the first tasks is to find the right image.

There’s a certain amount of confusion, especially when we’re trying to help someone who’s having problems with their deployment.

For example, when people say I’m using the official docker image… what does that really mean?

Docker Hub, provides their official image (https://hub.docker.com/_/mysql), but this is not the official MySQL image that we, the MySQL Team at Oracle, support.

Before the mess with Docker Hub ([1], [2], [3]), the real official images for MySQL were also available here: https://hub.docker.com/r/mysql/mysql-server/.

Has you can see, there is no update and the last available one is 8.0.32 from January 2023.

So if you are looking for the latest official, supported, versions of MySQL, including Innovation Releases, you can find them in the Oracle Container Registry:

And the registry contains all the recent versions including images for ARM:

The Oracle Container Registry includes container images for all Oracle products like Java, Oracle Linux and MySQL.

If you are looking for a MySQL container image, you know where to find it.

Enjoy deploying MySQL in containers !
