Basic operation

The service can be run with minimal configuration. Only the database connection information is required. (The only situtation when this is not needed is when running with the --test option.)

The database connection information can be provided in an environment variable DATABASE_URL containing a Postgres connection string. It can also be provided in the configuration file DbConnection parameter.

Linux or OSX

export DATABASE_URL=postgresql://username:password@host/dbname


SET DATABASE_URL=postgresql://username:password@host/dbname
