Suggestion for a database / data storage to stock records in N8N

Hi!

Is there a way to have a data storage in N8N? Somewhere fast and easy to write and read data from?
In make.com there are data storages, and that kind of function is the one I am searching for (or something that can do the same).

I was thinking on local databases. If this way could be doable and you would suggest it, which db is user friendly enough for me (not db expert at all) to implement it?

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 1.39.1
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): docker
  • Operating system: Ubuntu 22

I like to use baserow. You can selfhost it on the same vps and gives a nice UI

That sounds nice, I will try it soon!

I am searching for documentation and I found a lot for install it on docker container, but I have a problem:

The docker compose yml will set the container to use ports 80/443 which are the one I am using for N8N
I should use Baserow in another port, but I am not sure how to do it.

For reference, I am running the following docker container on the vps:
Caddy, N8N (on port 80), Portainer (on port 9443, without ssl :sweat_smile: )

there is a lot of examples including this in the docs :slight_smile:

I suppose you forgot to insert a link?

nope, you can find that yourself. :slight_smile:

Ok, thanks
