Atlas Requests uses a Postgres database. The database can be shared and on another server. Here’s a short install guide if you would like to set everything on the same server.
After setting up the database you should revisit the postgres config and tune it to work best on your server.
If you are demoing in docker you will need run different commands to get it started as docker doesn’t include
# create a web user
su - postgres -c "psql --command \"CREATE USER web_user WITH PASSWORD '1234_with_single_quotes';\""
# give user access to a db
su - postgres -c "createdb -O web_user atlas-requests"
