Docker and MariaDB/MySQL — Permanently Editing my.cnf to enable remote access

I am running Docker on a Macintosh, and have installed the MariaDB image. I would like to access it from another machine on the LAN.

I understand that the solution is to enable bind-address= (or something similar) in /etc/mysql/my.cnf. I executed docker exec -it mariadb bash, installed Joe text editor (because I am much more familiar with it than Vi or Nano), and edited the file.

The problem is that when I restart the Docker image,it has forgotten all the changes, and it doesn’t work.

Am I missing a step, or is this not the way to go about it?
