Deploy Umami analytics with Launcher

I have recently moved my deployment solution to Launcher and I wanted to use it to deploy Umami in my server too. It involves a few steps.

Create a new site and set the Git repository to [email protected]:mikecao/umami.git, and branch master, and copy the new database credentials.

Edit the App .env file.

DATABASE_URL=mysql://USERNAME:[email protected]:3306/statsyourdomaincom

Replacing USERNAME and PASSWORD with your generated database credentials, and RANDOMSTRING with a random string.

On macOS, you can use the following code to generate a random string of 32 characters.

cat /dev/urandom | tr -dc 'a-zA-Z0-9' | head -c 32

Edit the Deploy script (entrypoint).


set -eux -o pipefail
export NODE_OPTIONS=--max-old-space-size=8192

echo "Git pull"
git remote set-url origin $LAUNCHER_SITE_GIT_REPOSITORY

if [ -f yarn.lock ]; then
    echo "Install yarn dependencies and build production assets"
    yarn install
    yarn run build

exec "[email protected]"

Edit the Dockerfile PHP-FPM to expose the port 3000 used for Umami.

# https://hub.docker.com/u/uselauncher/php-fpm-80
# https://github.com/uselauncher/php-fpm-80

FROM uselauncher/php-fpm-80

# Uncomment the two lines below to install additional PHP extensions
# See: https://github.com/mlocati/docker-php-extension-installer

# USER root
# RUN install-php-extensions ldap

USER launcher


Deploy your stats.yourdomain.com site.

Create a daemon with the following command.

yarn --cwd /app start

SSH into container to get the daemon container name.

ssh [email protected] -t 'sudo docker ps'

SSH into container to get the daemon container IP address.

ssh [email protected] -t 'sudo docker inspect stats.yourdomain.com-daemon-1ee049e0-9ec6-40ba-ac0a-c81da43098e1'

Edit your Nginx site config to proxy the traffic and add this location block as shown below, and redeploy the site.

location / {
     proxy_set_header Host $host;
     proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
     proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

Now Umami is accesible at https://stats.yourdomain.com, and you can log in using admin/umami and change your password.
