I wanted to do some testing with Discourse so I took a backup of my instance, wiped the DB (
rm -fr /var/discourse/shared) and rebuilt the container.
I then created an admin user again and instead of following the setup wizard I went straight to admin, enabled restores, uploaded the backup and restored.
For whatever reason the outgoing email is disabled by an administrator message appeared.
I can confirm that the outgoing email was never disabled on the instance where the backup was made.
I did tick the option to enable readonly mode when performing backup operations.
Is this a bug or did I mess up somewhere?
