Database management

Tailchat uses mongodb as the main database to store user information

In docker, common operation and maintenance commands are as follows:

# backup
docker exec -i <IMAGE_NAME> mongodump -d tailchat --archive > ./backup.archive

# restore
docker exec -i <IMAGE_NAME> mongorestore -d tailchat --archive < ./backup.archive

Among them <IMAGE_NAME> represents the name of the mongodb image, and -d tailchat represents the name of the database used, the default database name is tailchat, you can modify it through the environment variable MONGO_URL


For user data security, it is recommended to create a scheduled task to regularly back up the database file
