We highly recommend running Docker with the AUFS storage driver. You can verify Docker is using
the AUFS storage driver with the following command
sudo docker info | grep Driver:
If you are upgrading from
0.2 I would recommend waiting a few weeks for the master
branch to stabilize. There was a huge amount of refactoring that destabilized the codebase
and I'd hate for that to impact any real world installations.
If you still want to upgrade to
0.2 please know that the databases are not compatible and
there is no automated migration due to some fundamental structural changes. You will need
to start with a fresh instance.
This is project is alpha stage. Consider yourself warned
We have optimized the installation process for Ubuntu since that is what we test with internally.
You can run the following commands to quickly download an install Drone on an Ubuntu machine.
# Ubuntu, Debian wget downloads.drone.io/master/drone.deb sudo dpkg -i drone.deb # CentOS, RedHat wget downloads.drone.io/master/drone.rpm sudo yum localinstall drone.rpm
By default, Drone will create a SQLite database. Drone also supports Postgres and MySQL
databases. You can customize the database settings using the configuration options
described in the Setup section.
Below are some example configurations that you can use as reference:
# to use postgres [database] driver="postgres" datasource="host=127.0.0.1 user=postgres dbname=drone sslmode=disable" # to use mysql [database] driver="mysql" datasource="root@tcp(127.0.0.1:3306)/drone"
We are in the process of moving configuration out of the UI and into configuration
files and/or environment variables (your choice which). If you prefer configuration files
you can provide Drone with the path to your configuration file:
The configuration file is in TOML format. If installed using the
will be located in
You can find the current config of the master branch here.

Or you can use environment variables
# custom http server settings export DRONE_SERVER_PORT="" export DRONE_SERVER_SSL_KEY="" export DRONE_SERVER_SSL_CERT="" # session settings export DRONE_SESSION_SECRET="" export DRONE_SESSION_EXPIRES="" # custom database settings export DRONE_DATABASE_DRIVER="" export DRONE_DATABASE_DATASOURCE="" # github configuration export DRONE_GITHUB_CLIENT="" export DRONE_GITHUB_SECRET="" export DRONE_GITHUB_OPEN=false # github enterprise configuration export DRONE_GITHUB_ENTERPRISE_CLIENT="" export DRONE_GITHUB_ENTERPRISE_SECRET="" export DRONE_GITHUB_ENTERPRISE_API="" export DRONE_GITHUB_ENTERPRISE_URL="" export DRONE_GITHUB_ENTERPRISE_PRIVATE_MODE=false export DRONE_GITHUB_ENTERPRISE_OPEN=false # bitbucket configuration export DRONE_BITBUCKET_CLIENT="" export DRONE_BITBUCKET_SECRET="" export DRONE_BITBUCKET_OPEN=false # gitlab configuration export DRONE_GITLAB_URL="" export DRONE_GITLAB_CLIENT="" export DRONE_GITLAB_SECRET="" export DRONE_GITLAB_SKIP_VERIFY=false export DRONE_GITLAB_OPEN=false # email configuration export DRONE_SMTP_HOST="" export DRONE_SMTP_PORT="" export DRONE_SMTP_FROM="" export DRONE_SMTP_USER="" export DRONE_SMTP_PASS="" # worker nodes # these are optional.

Or a combination of the two:
DRONE_GITLAB_URL="https://gitlab.com" droned --config=/path/to/drone.conf
In order to setup with GitHub you'll need to register your local Drone installation
with GitHub (or GitHub Enterprise). You can read more about registering an application here:
Below are example values when running Drone locally. If you are running Drone on a server
you should replace
localhost with your server hostname or address.
Authorization callback URL for github.com:
Authorization callback URL for GitHub Enterprise:
You will need to include a
.drone.yml file in the root of your repository in order to
configure a build. I'm still working on updated documentation, so in the meantime please refer
