Installed on a remote Linux server - runs fine, but on reboot acts like fresh install


I have installed the Metabase.jar file in “etc/metabase” then I have added the following line into “etc/rc.local” - “java -jar /etc/metabase/metabase.jar &”.

On reboot I can access the page and go through the setup process. I have even set up questions and dashboards.It all appears to run fine!

But when I reboot and go back to the page it starts the whole process over again like a fresh install. Everything has been forgotten, my account details, all the questions, dashboards everything. I can find nothing in the log files with regards to metabase.jar.

Has anyone else had a similar issue?
