  • I had a question about the article.

    How would you connect from the application running in a docker linux container to local SQL server that is running outside the container? I am assuming that would be a very common scenario for someone trying things out on a local machine before deploying the application in the cloud.

  • Hi Ajit, I did this in Part 2 of the series which is the May issue. . (there is also a part 3 where I then had the app in one container and the database in another...that's the June issue)

    Hope it helps!
