Default redash helm deployment failing with postgres pod stuck in crash loop

Issue Summary

After some period of successful deployment, the Redash postgres server is failing and get’s stuck in a crashBackoffLoop with this log message:

FATAL:  data directory "/bitnami/postgresql/data" has group or world access
DETAIL:  Permissions should be u=rwx (0700).

From what I’ve read, it appears that when the postgres pod get is restarted, there is some change in the permissions which prevents the postgres pod from properly coming back online.

I’m making almost zero changes to the vanilla values.yaml file so I’m very confused why the default installation would be so fragile.

I could be making a very foolish mistake so I would appreciate any help that could push me in the right direction.


Technical details:

  • Redash Version:v8.0.0
  • How did you install Redash:
    kubernetes, via helm on GCP using chart:

You might have better luck raising an issue on the helm repo. I don’t see many people using helm on this user forum.

Alrighty, thanks for the advice.
