Setup with PostgreSQL

By default, LinkAce requires using MySQL for the regular setup. To use PostgreSQL, please follow the specific instructions below depending on whether you use Docker or not.

Setup with Docker

Follow the steps 1 to 4 of the basic Docker installation guide, but do not start the built-in setup now.

Stop the Docker container now.

docker-compose stop

Replace DB_CONNECTION=mysql with DB_CONNECTION=pgsql and set the correct port of the database in DB_PORT=5432 in your .env file. After that run the following command to prepare the database:

docker-compose up -d
docker exec -it linkace_app_1 php artisan migrate

After that, generate a new admin account by running the following account. You will be asked for a username, email address and a password.

docker exec -it linkace_app_1 php artisan registeruser

You can now open LinkAce in your browser and should be able to use the application.

Please make sure to follow the post-installation steps to fully enable all features.
