Listmonk

Last updated Jul 2, 2024

Self-hosted newsletter and mailing list manager. Performance and features packed into a single binary. Free and open source.

My new Newsletter is published with Listmonk on list.ssp.sh. So far I used Mailchimp. I also liked Buttondown, unfortunately, it costs 9$ for above 100 subscribers.

By using open source Listmonk, I have the sending emails and collecting and unsubscribing from a newsletter, which I needed. But I had to deploy it myself. I used Railway.app.

# Upgrade on Railapp

# Backup Postgres DB

Restoring data from the backup

Our data should is now being automatically backed up to our S3 bucket. If we ever want to restore this data to a database, we can do so very easily using pg_restore.

First, unzip the backup which is stored as a tar.gz file and then run:

1
pg_restore -d 'DATABASE_URL' BACKUP_FOLDER

In the above snippet, replace the DATABASE_URL with the connection URL of the database you’d like to restore the data to and the BACKUP_FOLDER with the name of the folder to which you extracted your backup zip file and voila, your backup has been restored!

# Sending Emails of Newsletter

Sending it with Amazon SES.
