MySQL setup

important

This is needed only if you are running the SuperTokens core yourself.

blog

We also have a blog post writeup highlighting all the steps in more detail for different scenarios.

1) Create a database ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ#

CREATE DATABASE supertokens;

You can skip this step if you want SuperTokens to write to your own database. In this case, you will need to provide your database's name as shown in the step below.

2) Connect SuperTokens to your database ๐Ÿ”Œ#

caution

Host being localhost / 127.0.0.1 will not work in a docker image. Instead, please provide the database's local / public hostname or IP address.

You also need to make the database listen on all the IP's of the local machine. This can be done by editing the mysqld.cnf config file and setting the value of bind-address to 0.0.0.0.


docker run \    -p 3567:3567 \    -e MYSQL_CONNECTION_URI="mysql://username:[email protected]/dbName" \    -d registry.supertokens.io/supertokens/supertokens-mysql
# OR
docker run \    -p 3567:3567 \    -e MYSQL_USER="username" \    -e MYSQL_PASSWORD="password" \    -e MYSQL_HOST="host" \    -e MYSQL_PORT="3306" \    -e MYSQL_DATABASE_NAME="supertokens" \    -d registry.supertokens.io/supertokens/supertokens-mysql

3) Create tables ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป#

note

This happens automatically, unless you provide a MySQL user that doesn't have table creation permission.

tip

You also have the option to rename these tables.

4) Test the connection ๐Ÿคž#

To test, start SuperTokens and run the following query in your database

SELECT * FROM key_value;

If you see at least one row, it means that the connection has been successfully completed! ๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŽ‰
