Resource friendlier MySQL and MariaDB containers

I had trouble installing a WordPress container. I was getting errors with InnoDB. The reason was that I was too low on ram.

After some pondering I figured out that by tweaking the my.cnf file everything would be fine. So I made an image with a minimal config.

For light weight applications this is a good way of setting up Wordpress sites and similar contraptions that demand MySQL on machines that don't have gigabytes of RAM to throw around.

So many projects to make! I Enjoy building electronics, especially radios. I also like web development, playing with hardware like the Raspberry Pi and spending time outdoors. Love combining it all!
