You will need a running Postgres server.
A quick web search will show you how to install one. You basically need a dedicated server running where everybody has access to. It’s also possible to host the database in the Cloud or at you web host.
Create new database
When you create a new library the software will automatically create the new database for you.
All you have to provide is the login information (user & password), the database server (server name or IP address) and the database name - how you want to call the new database (Example: das_element). The software will setup all the tables for you. Nothing that you have to do.
Optional: You can use a SSL certificate.
Setup Postgres Server - docker compose
A easy way to create a new database server is to use Docker Compose
Please make sure to install Docker and Docker Compose first.
create a new folder: database_postgres
create a new text file inside the folder called: docker-compose.yml
add this code snipped into the file …
version: '3' services: postgres: image: postgres:13.1 healthcheck: test: [ "CMD", "pg_isready", "-q", "-d", "postgres", "-U", "root" ] timeout: 45s interval: 10s retries: 10 restart: always environment: - POSTGRES_USER=root - POSTGRES_PASSWORD=password - APP_DB_USER=docker - APP_DB_PASS=docker - APP_DB_NAME=docker volumes: - ./postgres-data:/var/lib/postgresql/data ports: - 5432:5432
4. run this command to start the database:
docker-compose up -d
