Updating Environment Variables

Environment variables are a crucial part of configuring your UI Bakery On-Premise installation. They can control various settings, including your license key, database connections, and application behavior. Here's how you can modify them.
After the installation of UI Bakery On-Premise, a directory named ui-bakery-on-premise is created. Within this directory, you will find a file named .env. This file contains the environment variables for your instance.
To modify any variable, such as your license key or other settings:
  1. 1.
    Open the .env file using a text editor. You can do this through the command line or by navigating through the file explorer to ui-bakery-on-premise and opening the .env file.
  2. 2.
    Find and modify or add a new variable:
  3. 3.
    Make sure to save the file after making your changes.
  4. 4.
    To apply the changes, a system restart is necessary. Accomplish this by running the following commands in your terminal:
    docker-compose down
    docker-compose up -d
Restarting your UI Bakery On-Premise instance with docker-compose down and docker-compose up -d does not erase your data. Persistent data is stored in Docker volumes, ensuring it remains safe across container restarts.
