FIST basics

The system runs on two docker containers. One that contains the web server and another that contains the mongo database. The hosting server is currently but this might change in the near future. Currently the docker containers are launched by docker-compose, but eventually this will be moved into ansible.


A mongo backup container takes periodic data dumps and puts them into a system accessible folder. In order to restore a backup, you need to enter the backup container and run:

mongorestore --gzip --host mongo --port 27017 --archive=/backup/<whatever-backup-file>.archive.gz
