Migration Snap to Docker


we would like to migrate Rocketchat server from Snap to Docker. But unfortunately it does not work.

Server Setup Information

  • Version of Rocket.Chat Server:
  • Operating System: Debian 11
  • Deployment Method: snap
  • Number of Running Instances: 1
  • DB Replicaset Oplog: -
  • NodeJS Version: v14.21.2
  • MongoDB Version: 5.0.15
  • Proxy: apache
  • Firewalls involved:-

Any additional Information

I tried to import the mongodb dump file into the docker mongodb container. It always comes up with the initial setup.

It doesn’t matter if the rocketchat server is running during the migration or not, it won’t work in both cases.

How can I proceed here?
