Clean up

In this document you’ll learn how to:

  • Exit the MySQL command client shell and the Docker container

  • Remove the Docker container and the Docker image

  • Remove the Docker volume.

The steps are as follows:

  1. To exit the MySQL command client shell in psmysql2 container, we use exit. You can also use the \q or quit commands. The execution of the statement also closes the connection.

    mysql> exit
    Expected output
  2. Remove docker containers and images, if you no longer need docker containers / images or want to free up disk space. To remove a docker container, use the command docker rm followed by the container name or the container ID. To remove a docker image, use the command docker rmi followed by the image ID or name and the tag. The example uses the -f option to force the removal.

    • Remove psmysql2, psmysql and pxb Docker containers:

      $ docker container rm psmysql2 -f
      Expected output
      $ docker container rm psmysql -f
      Expected output
      $ docker container rm pxb -f
      Expected output
    • Remove percona/percona-server:8.0.34 and percona/percona-xtrabackup:8.0.34 Docker images

      $ docker image rmi percona/percona-server:8.0.34
      Expected output
      Untagged: percona/percona-server:8.0.34
      $ docker image rmi percona/percona-xtrabackup:8.0.34
      Expected output
      Untagged: percona/percona-server:8.0.34
      Untagged: percona/percona-server@sha256:4944f9b365e0dc88f41b3b704ff2a02d1459fd07763d7d1a444b263db8498e1f

  3. Remove docker volume if a container does not use the volume, and you no longer need it

    Remove backupvol and myvol2 Docker volumes:

    $ docker volume rm backupvol
    Expected output
    $ docker volume rm myvol2
    Expected output
