Posted by Vikash on Saturday, Apr 1, 2023 Reading time: 1 Min

Create the postgresql container

docker run -d --name postgres \
  -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=RunningFlying2 \
  -e PGDATA=/var/lib/postgresql/data/pgdata \
  -v postgres_data:/var/lib/postgresql/data \
  -p 5432:5432


The above command will create a container with latest version of Postgres.

Here are the container and postgres database details.

  • Container Name: postgres
  • Docker Volume: postgres_data
  • Host:
  • Port: 5432
  • User: postgres
  • Password: RunningFlying2

That’s all for now.
