Schema Migrations

When using Docker Compose, you can prepend commands like docker-compose exec [service] [command] to run them in a service container. Should this fail with no container found, make sure the service has been started, you have specified an existing service (usually photoprism) and you are in the folder where the docker-compose.yml file is located.

Show Migration Status

Run the photoprism migrations ls command in a terminal to see a list of all migrations and their current status:

$ photoprism migrations ls
