After creating the mysql docker container i wanted to load a new database dump to it.
In case you are wondering how to create dockers on you windows machine you can refer my post here .
If you are just testing it you can download a sample mysql database from here .
Once you have downloaded the sample DB unzip it in a folder.
$ docker cp mydump.sql c598nvcvc190:/root # Here c598nvcvc190 is name of database container
