Where is the .env file?

Hi all,
I’m trying to install self hosted Taiga on Ubuntu 20.04 and ran
git clone GitHub - kaleidos-ventures/taiga-docker
I’ve looked at this tutorial (Taiga setup in 30 min.) and there it says:

We’ve exposed the Basic configuration settings in Taiga to an .env file. We strongly recommend you to change it, or at least review its content, to avoid using the default values.

I’ve looked for this .env file, but I can’t find it. I can only see a penpot .env file, but I guess that not the right one. Where could it be?


it’s a hidden file I can only see with
ls -als

It would be nice if the manual/ tutorial could solve this puzzle for me in the first place and mention this, even if it obvious for most people (apparently). It has cost me quite some time to figure this out.

Hi @hermann-san and thanks for your suggestion. It is known that files starting with . are hidden files; however, I’ve just updated the tutorial to specifically mention this.
Thanks for your suggestion!
