Hi Team, I use docker compose for self hosted growth book. I just did docker-compose down (NO -v) and docker-compose up -d and everything for wiped. It even asked me to create a user the first time

Hi Keshav. I'm sorry to hear that. Docker-compose down when there is not a volume attached will unfortunately mean that the data can not be resurrected. At least to the best of my knowledge.

I have used default docker compose fine which has volume

I do not believe the default mongo service - where the data is stored - does have a volume specified.

correct
Was there a specific reason you did docker-compose down?
I can bring it up with the engineering team about adding a volume to the mongo container in the default docker image, but they might not want it for data security or performance reasons.

Perhaps we can make it clearer in the docs too, that doing docker-compose down is dangerous.
I hope you didn't lose too much data.

@white-fireman-22476 but how would the data persist if team is worried about performance issues. Is there an alternate way
no no, we had just started

oh good phew
The data persists as long as the docker container is not stopped or deleted. We also have export functionality.

isnt it danegrous. Suppose for things beyond control a server stops and restarts then data is gone
adding volume worked so thats good

Yes personally I always set a volume. It does seem to me personally a bit dangerous to not have a volume specified.
And sorry to hear that you will have to recreate your work so far. It looks like you might have been experiencing some permission or other issue in connecting with your datasource. If you run into that problem again let us know and we can try to help.
