Start a Tryton instance and cron instance

Hello Forum,

when should i use “Start a Tryton instance” and when “Start a Tryton cron instance”?

How can i use a external database with Tryton Docker?
Which dababase should i prefren, PostgresSQL 12?

Thank you, have a nice day


You need at least the “Tryton instance”. But if you want to have scheduled actions performed automatically, you need to start a “Tryton cron instance”.

You can set the environment variable TRYTOND_DATABASE_URI using the syntax of [database] uri.

PostgreSQL is the preferred one and of course the latest available is always better.
