I’m testing the backup/restore process, and I found something annoying but non-blocking :
I have configure my discourse instance with the automatic daily backup on S3.
I made a fresh discourse install, created a new admin user, then go to Admin > Settings > Backups > “Allow Restore”, so ready for Restore process.
Then I went to aws.amazon.com, downloaded the latest backup, and tried to upload it on my new instance.
Here is the blocking message :
There has been an error while uploading ‘mydiscourseinstance-2015-04-02-030000.gz’: The backup file should be a .tar.gz archive.
Indeed, the backup is a “.gz” archive.
So I downloaded Z-zip for Windows 7, and created a .tar then a .tar.gz archive, uploaded it on my new instance. Here the welcome message :
mydiscourseinstance-2015-04-02-030000.tar.gz’ has successfully been uploaded.
then … nothing
“No backup available.” on the backup listing
How can I restore my instance ?
Thanks for your help !
