Publish metabase dashboard into web URL

Hi All,

Apologies if this question has been already been answered.

After publishing dashboard I get the following links but they are all for localhost.

My question is how do I go about publishing this dashboard on a server?

Do I need to install metabase on the server hosting the dashboard?

Please explain like I’m a 5-year old. Thanks!

You need to set the base url in settings/general:

Andrew it seems that’s the tutorial to link the URL where you want to publish the reports but it doesn’t publish the reports there.

I need to publish my reports from localhost to a server.

It’s not possible to migrate reports from one server to another (yet). Easiest approach is to copy the database, then just change the database connection.

Andrew is it possible to host the dashboard on my web hosting (i.e. GoDaddy) ?

I don’t know what services GoDaddy provide. you need something that will run the jar.

Thanks for prompt reply.

FYI, we are currently working on a way to migrate the contents of one MB instance to another in this PR: https://github.com/metabase/metabase/pull/8845

The first version of it will be a wholesale dump+load, but in the future we may enhance it with selective dumping/loading.

That will be a great help!
