Blank page after upgrade due to broken plugin

I run my community at Yesterday, I upgraded the platform using ./launcher rebuild app. After the upgraded completed, users who try to access the platform without logging in are getting a blank page.

The app.yml is set to test-passed by default. When I change it to the stable channel, this is the error I get:

Pups::ExecError: cd /var/www/discourse && su discourse -c 'bundle exec rake db:migrate' failed with return #<Process::Status: pid 11533 exit 1>
Location of failure: /pups/lib/pups/exec_command.rb:108:in `spawn'
exec failed with the params {"cd"=>"$home", "hook"=>"bundle_exec", "cmd"=>["su discourse -c 'bundle install --deployment --verbose --without test --without development'", "su discourse -c 'bundle exec rake db:migrate'", "su discourse -c 'bundle exec rake assets:precompile'"]}
** FAILED TO BOOTSTRAP ** please scroll up and look for earlier error messages, there may be more than one

Can someone please help me with this?

You can’t downgrade from tests-passed to stable; it doesn’t work because your DB has changed.

Disable all third party plugins and rebuild.


Thanks for the info Jeff. Let me try that right away.

If you are using the guest gate plugin then disable it, it’s broken and give you a blank page.


That was exactly the issue. Disabled it and it works now. :slight_smile:
