  • ~/Library/Application Support/Mattermost on OS X
  • ~/.config/Mattermost on Linux

A custom data directory location can be specified with:

  • Mattermost.exe -- --data-dir C:\my-mattermost-data on Windows
  • open /Applications/Mattermost.app/ --args --data-dir ~/my-mattermost-data/ on macOS

  • --proxy-server=<SERVER>:<PORT>
  • --proxy-pac-url=<URL>

On Windows, please make sure to add -- before options. For example, Mattermost.exe -- --proxy-server=....
