This article refers to the on-premises installation of COYO.
In Docker, important or a lot of data is not stored in containers themselves, so that the are quickly available and remain replaceable. Instead, a volume is created on the host.
In COYO, the data path for this data is defined in the .env (environment).
Note: Since the file has a dot (.env) in front of its name, it is invisible.
The file contains an entry for the data path :
When COYO is initialized, the following folders are created in it:
backend backup db es es-logs mongo rabbitmq redis
These contain all the important data that you have created in your COYO so far.
The following is a short explanation of what can be found in the directory:
|`-- logs||backend logfile (essential for troubleshooting)|
||-- database||PostgreSQL database backup (full backups, older can be deleted)|
||-- filestore||MongoDB database backup (incremental, do not delete!)|
|`-- [...]||current PostgreSQL database|
||-- diagnostic.data||Metrics on the status of the database|
||-- config||Configuration files|
|`-- schema||Configuration schema|
|redis||singe-file backup for Redis|
