I’ve just tried to upgrade discourse to the latest version. I’ve done this on a clone of our live box because we have had a multitude of problems and I don’t want to risk breaking the live instance. I used the upgrade process of running these commands:
./launcher bootstrap web_only
./launcher destroy web_only
./launcher start web_only
This didn’t work on our live instance by the way - it broke discourse completely and I had to create a new machine from backups to get it working again.
However on the clone instance it appears the upgrade has worked - but when I try to access the URL the page is completely blank. The browser seems to connect because I can even view the certificate for the site, but the page is blank.
Incidentally the reason we are trying this is because our emails recently stopped sending for no apparent reason, and we have not been able to upload images to our forum for about a month now. This used to work, nothing was changed, and suddenly image uploads hang at 100% and nothing happens.
So basically, a lot of problems, but if I could solve the blank page issues then I can at least see if image uploads and emails work on the new version.
Can anyone help? Discourse hasn’t worked the way we need it to (and had it working before) for over a month now and it’s starting to impact really heavily on us.
