I would recommend reading through the documentation surrounding the
specific MySQL image that you are trying to use. Since that MySQL
image would be completely useless without some means of creating and
initializing a database, there should be *something* documented in
that regard. That part of things is not Guacamole-specific.

Once you iron out deploying MySQL, you should be good to proceed with Guacamole.

You need, at minimum, two containers:

1) guacd
2) guacamole (which must be linked to guacd)

The configuration for Guacamole is provided at container creation
time. If you are using MySQL, then that configuration comes through
the environment variables supplied to the "docker" command and
(optionally) an additional link to a MySQL container. The
configuration information for MySQL is thus derived either 100% from
those environment variables, or from a combination of those variables
and the link.

If you read ahead through the Docker chapter of the Guacamole manual,
this is all covered pretty thoroughly:

Make sense?
