MySQL Container Demo

Docker is by default non-persistent. Data stored in Docker are lost after container has been turned off or deleted.

Learn to attach storage to Docker container to persist / save the state of data even after removing or deleting container.

Persistent Storage

This topic focuses on Dockerfile configuration. The basic foundation to build a Dockerized application. In this lecture; students are prepared to build a GoLang REST API microservice by configuring a Dockerfile.

Note: All resources and sources can be downloaded via link


Build simple GoLang REST webservice that gets the current system time and hostname.  Learn to build the source into an image that runs in Docker container.

GoLang build command:

# sudo docker build -t webservice:latest . -f Dockerfile

Run Docker container in background

# sudo docker run -itd --name webservice -p 8000:8000 webservice:latest

OpenShift via Docker Installation


Minishift is a tool that helps you run OKD locally by launching a single-node OKD cluster inside a virtual machine. With Minishift you can try out OKD or develop with it, day-to-day, on your local machine.

You can run Minishift on the Windows, macOS, and GNU/Linux operating systems. Minishift uses libmachine for provisioning virtual machines, and OKD for running the cluster. Linux Installation Procedure(CentOS)

  1. Install Linux Pre-Requisites

    Run the following commands in Linux terminal as root.

    yum update


    yum install -y kernel-devel kernel-headers gcc make perl

    yum -y install wget

  2. Install VirtualBox


    rpm --import oracle_vbox.asc

    wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/virtualbox.repo

    yum install -y VirtualBox-5.2

    systemctl status vboxdrv

  3. Install Minishift


    tar -xvf minishift-1.23.0-linux-amd64.tgz

    mv minishift-1.23.0-linux-amd64.tgz minishift

    cd minishift

    ./minishift start --vm-driver=virtualbox

Secure your OpenShift Installation

This tutorial shows how to secure publicly accessible OpenShift installation such as those that are deployed in AWS. Note that this tutorial uses OpenShift version 3.9 as compared to 3.10 on previous lecture. That is because there were changes in the security installation procedures on version 3.10 above that significantly affect configurations causing complexity. I decided to stick with the simpler one when it comes to security.

Create AWS Instance (Red Hat Linux)

  • Please refer on the video.

Install and Configure Docker in AWS

  • sudo yum-config-manager --enable "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 7 Extra(RPMs)"

  • sudo yum install docker -y

  • sudo systemctl start docker

Download and Install OpenShift Version 3.9

  • sudo yum install wget

  • wget

  • tar -xvf openshift-origin-client-tools-v3.9.0-191fece-linux-64bit.tar.gz

  • Edit /etc/sysconfig/ and add --insecure-registry in OPTIONS

    • e.g. OPTIONS='--selinux-enabled --log-driver=journald --signature-verification=false --default-ulimit nofile=1024:4096 --insecure-registry'

  • sudo systemctl restart docker

Test OpenShift Installation (Unsecured)

  • Start OpenShift

    • ./oc cluster up --routing-suffix=[public ip] --public-hostname=[public dns]

  • Test OpenShift by logging in console https://your public dns:8443

  • Notice that it will accept any username and password

  • Turn off unsecured installation

    • ./oc cluster down

Secure OpenShift htpasswd Configuration

  • Install htpasswd

    • sudo yum install httpd-tools

  • Create allowed username in OpenShift, please supply a password when prompted

    • sudo htpasswd -c /var/lib/origin/openshift.local.config/master/users.htpasswd secureduser

  • Edit the master-config.yaml (see attached sample file This is likely to be located at /var/lib/origin/openshift.local.config/master/master-config.yaml.


      - name: my_allow_provider

        challenge: true

        login: true

Discuss how to create project in OpenShift. Project are like a namespace / folder where one can add Applications to run.


Application is the process of adding an image or a source to the project. The application are binary that runs in your containers / Pods. This lecture will use Apache HTTPD as sample application for demo.


Allows your application running in container / pods accessible in the outside world.


A virtual environment that runs group of containers. Pods can be scaled up or down. Pod is like a virtual compute processing that run containers. Note though that pod is not a virtual machine as it does not use hypervisor.

Configure MySQL in OpenShift

Redirect traffic going in to you local server into specific pods in OpenShift such that applications and running inside the container appear to be installed and configured locally. This is essential for development purposes.

Port Forwarding

This lecture discusses on how to create a disk storage in OpenShift and have it mounted to Pods. I attached a script that creates 10 persistent storage. You may use this this for your own.


  • We are using local volume mount for testing purposes only not for production.

  • Commercial grade volume mounting are out of scope of this lecture such as Container Native volumes, NFS, AWS EBS, etc.

Step 1: Run OpenShift with ETCD mounted locally

# sudo mkdir /opt/etcd

# sudo ./oc cluster up --routing-suffix=<your Public IP> --public-hostname=<your public hostname if exist> --use-existing-config=true --host-data-dir='/opt/etcd'

Step 2: Run the to generate script

# sudo ./

Watch the video for full demonstration of the persistent volume mounted locally.

Persistent Storage Volumes

Deploy the Spring Boot REST API into OpenShift. The following are the process:

  1. Build the Docker image

  2. Push the image to Docker Hub

  3. Create Application in OpenShift

  4. Point the image of the Application to Docker Hub

  5. Edit the the expose the service and create new route

  6. Test the REST API

Please refer to the video for detailed process and explanation. I also attached the source code for this. Make sure to edit some parameters in the code such as database url, username, and password on the

Deploy SpringBoot REST Microservice

This lecture shows how to create Application by pointing OpenShift to a source repository like git.

Step 1: Login to OpenShift console

# sudo ./oc login -u <username>

Step 2: Select a project

# sudo ./oc project testproject

Step 3: Create the Application

# sudo ./oc new-app

Step 4: Expose the Service

# sudo ./oc expose <name of the service> --port=<golang REST API port> --hostname=<service>

e.g. sudo ./oc expose svc/webservice --port=8000

Step 5: Test the Application by accessing URL endpoints in browser

This shows how to install OpenShift Origin 3.9 in a multi-clustered environment. We will be using Vagrant to simulate different machines.

Step 1: Install Dependencies

yum -y install gcc dkms make qt libgomp patch

yum -y install kernel-headers kernel-devel binutils glibc-headers glibc-devel font-forge

cd /etc/yum.repo.d/


Step 2: Install VirtualBox

yum install -y VirtualBox-5.1

/sbin/rcvboxdrv setup

Step 3: Install Vagrant

# Accept default values and do not put password


yum -y install

Step 4: Launch Bastion Host

# Install git if you do not have one

yum install git

# You must download our sample vagrant configuration file

# Note, you can also download it in the attachment of this article

git clone

cd openshift_ansible_vagrant/vagrant

# At this point, there will be three virtual machines that will be created. A bastion host, master node, and worker node. It will take sometime running this command, go get some coffee first.

vagrant up

Step 5: Run Ansible Automated Install

# Login to the created Bastion Host

username: vagrant

password: vagrant

# Run  Ansible script to prepare openshift in the master and node

ansible-playbook -i hosts openshift.yaml

#Run Ansible script to install and setup pre-requisites

ansible-playbook -i hosts openshift-ansible/playbooks/prerequisites.yml

# Run the actual cluster deployment

ansible-playbook -i hosts openshift-ansible/playbooks/deploy_cluster.yml

# Fix some configurations

ansible-playbook -i hosts fix.yml

Step 6: Add a admin role to a user

# Login to the master node

username: vagrant

password: vagrant

# Add the role

oc adm policy add-cluster-role-to-user cluster-admin admin

Step 7: Login to admin console
