Does the prefect server persist it's data on shutdown by default? This is running prefect with a server as the backend

Hi @Will Milner! Not by default, as the CLI command removes the containers when the process is killed, but you can specify a volume mount for the postgres container with the
(and optionally
) flags of
prefect server start
to persist the data between containers.

Ah this was just recently released in a newer version of prefect. Thanks for the heads up
