Here is how to configure MySQL so you can load data without getting the following error:
Loading local data is disabled; this must be enabled on both the client and server sides
In my example, I’m running MySQL 8 in a Docker Swarm and connecting using the command-line client.
On the server side, you need to set local-infile to ON.
Here is what the MySQL section of the compose file looks like. Note the setting has been added to the command: section.
mysql: image: mysql:8.0.22 command: --default-authentication-plugin=mysql_native_password --local-infile=ON hostname: mysql ports: - "3306:3306" volumes: - mysql_data:/var/lib/mysql environment: MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD_FILE: /run/secrets/mysql_password secrets: - mysql_password
On the client side, you have to set local-infile=1. This can be done directly in the call to the client
or you can set it in the configuration file
with the configuration file (ex: mysql.conf) set something like this:
host = <your hostname>
user = <your username>
password = <your password>
With these two settings, you should be good to go!
