Xwiki support for arm64/8

Hi all,

Forgive me if I’ve missed something here. I’m running the alpha Rasbian (Raspberry OS) Buster arm64 build on a raspberry Pi 4.

Id like to run xwiki on it and move it off my server in an effort to reduce noise - it sounds like an aircraft taking off with its cooling fans!).

I’m running docker and mysql/mysql-server:8.0.25-1.2.3-server arm64/v8 in a container. It works fine (https://hub.docker.com/r/mysql/mysql-server/tags?page=1&ordering=last_updated).

I know that there are lots of postgres images for xwiki available (https://hub.docker.com/r/arm64v8/xwiki/tags?page=1&ordering=last_updated) but as has been pointed out, no images for mysql.

Id like to be able to use mysql for consistency and because Im hosting other databases in that container so it seems sensible.

I may have missed the point but given there is a build of mysql that seems to work fine on Rasbian arm64.v8, is there any difficulty in producing that image?

Would it be a matter of using one of the postgres images and simply point it at a mysql database?
Any help or guidance would be most appreciated.



We tried in the past and it was failing. This is what we have in the official dockerhub image file:

support arm64 architecture · Issue #318 · docker-library/mysql · GitHub is still open.

PS: I’m really not an expert on this so if you can tell us what to do and what will work, I’d be happy.
PS2: you could also open a PR on the official image file mentioned above if you know what will make it work.
