Docker + Traefik

July 3, 2019

This summer I’ve taken the time to learn and redo my entire environment in Docker.

The other day I was having an issue where I needed exactly MySQL 5.7 to mimic a production environment and my Homebrew version of MySQL had accidentally been upgraded to 8.0. I fiddled around with downgrading for longer than I’d like to admit before realizing I could just spin up a quick Docker container with the exact version – 5 minutes later I was up and running with container running MySQL and my application’s environment mirroring production.
