Self hosting configuration file
There are several settings that are passed to the docker container which runs the recorder app. Create a local config file using the configuration template.
mkdir ~/.sessionrecord && cd ~/.sessionrecord curl -o config https://uxlens.com/self-host/config-template chmod +x config
Some of these settings are mandatory and indicated by an asterisk(*) next to it.
Storage Location *
This variable should contain the absolute path of a folder where you want to store the recorded data. Make sure you have enough disk space on that drive too.
Recorder app uses smtp to send emails for user activation, password reset and to send scheduled reports.
