Soledad Server is a document store and a blobs server that can synchronize data with a Soledad Client.

Soledad Server is written as a Twisted application and intended to be run using
twistd command. To start the server, run:
twistd -n --python /path/to/leap/soledad/server/server.tac
Some updates of Soledad need manual intervention for database migration because of changes to the storage backend. In all such cases, we will document the steps needed for migration in this page.
Soledad Server 0.8 to 0.9 - Couch Database schema migration needed¶
Starting with Soledad Server 0.9.0, the CouchDB database schema was changed to improve speed of the server side storage backend. Because of that, this script has to be run for all Leap providers that used to provide email using Soledad Server < 0.9.0.
The migration script can be found:
- In the Soledad repository.
soledad-serverdebian package is installed.
Instructions for migration can be found in the
README.md file. Make sure to read it carefully and backup your data before starting the migration process.
