    The
    docker-compose.yml
    (in prefect/cli) that is ran upon
    prefect server start
    brings up a postgres instance. If I already had a postgres instance running, is it possible through the CLI to omit bringing up the postgres instance that is in the
    docker-compose.yml
    ? Similar to
    docker-compose up
    .
    I ended up having to take out the
    postgres
    service in that
    docker-compose.yml
    but wondering if there was a better way.
    or even a flag to point to a custom
    docker-compose.yml

    Is the postgres instance you already have running the one that Prefect Core’s server is going to use? If not you can adjust the port for the postgres container so they don’t interfere with
    --postgres-port

    yeah that was kind of another question I had. Is it best practice for Prefect to have its own dedicated database instance?

    As that process currently stands I would say yes (due to migrations against the db)
