Environment Variables

Coolify needs to have the following environment variables to be set in advance.

This is done automatically with the automated installation script.

COOLIFY_APP_IDA random UUID. Used to differentiate between installed instances. Also used to enable/disable telemetry (empty = disabled).
COOLIFY_SECRET_KEYUsed to encrypt all kinds of private data. Must be 32 characters long.
COOLIFY_DATABASE_URLSQLite database URL. Must be under ../db .
COOLIFY_IS_ONWhere Coolify is deployed to. Currently, only docker is supported.
COOLIFY_WHITE_LABELEDIt removes the “branding” of your Coolify instance. Please get in touch with me before using this.
COOLIFY_WHITE_LABELED_ICONA remote icon to be replaced on the login/registration page.
COOLIFY_AUTO_UPDATEIt updates your Coolify instance automatically behind the scenes.


Usage: [options...]
    -h, --help                  Show this help menu.
    -v, --version               Show script version.

    -d, --debug                 Show debug logs during installation.
    -f, --force                 Force installation.

    -r, --restart               Only restarts Coolify.

    -n, --do-not-track          Opt-out of telemetry.
    # You can set export DO_NOT_TRACK=1 in advance.

    -a, --auto-update           Enable auto update feature of Coolify.

    -w, --white-labeled         Install white-labeled version.
    # Contact me before using it:

    -i, --white-labeled-logo    Custom logo for white-labeled.
    # Should be a http/https URL.

Change Configuration

You can always execute the installation script with different options to reconfigure Coolify.

For example:

  • If you want to opt-out of tracking, execute the install script with --do-not-track.
  • If you want to use the white-labeled version, execute the install script with --white-labeled.

Some configurations are not preserved if you would like to change them on an already configured instance.

These options are the following: --white-labeled, --do-no-track, --white-labeled-icon.

So if you installed Coolify with --do-no-track before, and you want to also use --white-labeled option, you need execute the install script with --do-not-track and --white-labeled!


If for some reason, your instance crashes, you can restart it with the following command:

wget -q \
-O; sudo bash ./ -r


You can easily uninstall Coolify by stopping the following containers, coolify, coolify-proxy and coolify-fluentbit, or execute the following script:

docker stop -t 0 coolify coolify-proxy coolify-fluentbit; docker rm coolify coolify-proxy coolify-fluentbit

You also need to cleanup all the docker volumes as well.

docker volume rm coolify-db coolify-letsencrypt coolify-local-backup coolify-logs coolify-ssl-certs coolify-traefik-letsencrypt

And delete all configurations in ~/coolify:

rm -f ~/coolify
