When you run the migrations, make sure that all Miniflux processes are stopped.

Creating extensions requires SUPERUSER privileges. Several solutions are available:

  1. Give SUPERUSER privileges to miniflux user only during the schema migration:
ALTER USER miniflux WITH SUPERUSER;
-- Run the migrations (miniflux -migrate)
ALTER USER miniflux WITH NOSUPERUSER;
  1. You could create the hstore extension as a postgres user with SUPERUSER privileges before to run the migrations.
sudo -u postgres psql $MINIFLUX_DATABASE
> CREATE EXTENSION hstore;

Warning

Password that contains special characters like ^ might be rejected since Miniflux 2.0.3. Golang v1.10 is now validating the password and will return this error: net/url: invalid userinfo. To avoid this issue, do not use the URL format for DATABASE_URL or make sure the password is URL encoded.
