3. Finish the setup

Navigate to your chatwoot domain and complete the onboarding setup.

4. Configure environment variables

Cloudron will take care of Postgres and Redis installation, along with the app and worker processes. We would advise you to replace the Database/Redis services with managed/standalone servers once you start scaling.

Also, ensure to set the appropriate environment variables for email, Object Store service etc. using our Environment variables guide.

Custom environment variables can be set in /app/data/env using the Cloudron File manager. Be sure to reboot the app after making any changes.

Upgrading Chatwoot installation

Chatwoot follows a monthly release pattern with a new release every 15th of the month. Use the built in Cloudron app updates to stay on the latest version. Read about the changelog here.
