Using the official docker-compose.yml from RocketChat and I'm getting the following error:

Error: $MONGO_OPLOG_URL must be set to the 'local' database of a Mongo replica set

Has anybody got any ideas how to fix this or where to start looking?

I have been wandering all day on the chat, but nobody answered. I've offered my help for the French translation but no answers from the team too...

Please join us at and a core team or community member can help you with it. Basically, if you have your mongoDB instance running from a previous version - this image should just work.

I love what you did an are doing with I used it for a few months but, for this update you didn't provide any advices or instructions to deploy your container. I have a running mongoDB from the previous setup, which is currently running.
How can I upgrade while keeping my accounts and channels ? I even tried to test the new container but it didn't ran properly. Can you provide these info please ?

Thank you by advance
