1. Stop your Pleroma instance and edit your Pleroma config to enable database configuration:
```
config :pleroma, configurable_from_database: true
```
2. Run the mix task to migrate to the database. You'll receive some debugging output and a few messages informing you of what happened.

4. Now you can edit your config file and strip it down to the only settings which are not possible to control in the database. e.g., the Postgres and webserver (Endpoint) settings cannot be controlled in the database because the application needs the settings to start up and access the database.
⚠️ **THIS IS NOT REQUIRED**
Any settings in the database will override those in the config file, but you may find it less confusing if the setting is only declared in one place.

## Reverting back from database config
1. Stop your Pleroma instance.
2. Run the mix task to migrate back from the database. You'll receive some debugging output and a few messages informing you of what happened.
