Thank you for reaching out via the Mattermost Forums. I understand that you are facing issues with the Mattermost extension on Plesk and are considering using Docker for installation. I’ll be glad to assist you with your queries.
Regarding the Mattermost extension on Plesk, it seems that you are using version 7.1.0, which might not be the latest release. Mattermost is currently at version 7.8.0, as you mentioned. However, please note that the Plesk extension might not always be immediately updated to the latest Mattermost version. The Plesk extension team typically works on ensuring stability and compatibility before releasing updates.
Now, let’s address your questions regarding installing Mattermost with Docker. Deploying Mattermost with Docker containers provides a flexible and convenient way to set up a self-hosted Mattermost server. While the official Mattermost Docker installation page primarily provides command line instructions, I can guide you through the process using Docker images.
To install a self-hosted Mattermost setup with Docker, you would typically need to run multiple containers to set up the necessary components. The main container required is the Mattermost Team Edition (or Enterprise Edition if you have a license), which contains the Mattermost server itself. Additionally, you will need a database container to store the server data.
To get started, you can refer to the official Mattermost Docker installation guide (Redirect) for detailed instructions. This guide will provide you with a step-by-step walkthrough, including the Docker commands required to set up the Mattermost server and the database.
When it comes to choosing the Mattermost Docker images, you can use the official Mattermost Docker images available on Docker Hub (Docker). These images are maintained by the Mattermost team and provide a reliable and secure way to run Mattermost in Docker containers. You can choose the appropriate image based on the edition (Team or Enterprise) and version you wish to use.
If you prefer a more graphical interface for managing Docker, you might consider using tools like Portainer or Docker Compose. These tools provide a web-based interface that simplifies Docker container management and configuration. They can be particularly helpful if you are not comfortable with command line instructions.
I hope this information helps you in setting up your self-hosted Mattermost installation using Docker. If you have any further questions or encounter any issues during the process, please don’t hesitate to ask for assistance. We are here to help you.
