Metabase goes back to setup randomly


We are using Metabase in Azure and connecting it to our Azure SQL Server database, everything is working fine but the issue that it is randomly goes back to /setup "Welcome to Metabase" and everything disappears.

Tried to back and restore the PostgreSql but with no luck.

Are we doing something wrong and is there way to get our dashboards and questions back.


Hi @metaUser
Sounds like you have not configured it to use the application database or have configured environment variables in the console, which goes away on reboot.

Thanks, is there a tutorial on how to set it up in Azure?

@metaUser Azure is a hosting provider, so just setup a Debian-based server:

We are using docker

@metaUser Then follow the documentation for how to run Docker:
