Cannot Locate Images Folder for Logo


(Dustin) #1

Hello, I’m not exactly a server administrator but never had this problem before. I installed Discourse using a DigitalOcean droplet. If I go to the Discourse admin panel, it tells me where the images folder is located: /var/www/discourse/images. Clearly, I can get to this location in SSH, but the www folder does not show up in Transmit. Hidden files are automatically set to show in Transmit.

I’m sure it’s something simple, but I just can’t figure out why this is happening. Thanks!

Enter the docker container.

(Also I am pretty sure uploads are mapped to local storage, not ultimately saved in the container which is viewed as “disposable”)

To upload images, locate the Assets for the site design topic, post a reply with the images, and copy their URL. Saving them in /var/www/discourse/images in the container will cause data loss when rebuilding.

That is where the files are stored in the container.
On the host, they are in /var/discourse/shared/uploads/

Not sure what I was thinking. Completely forgot about this section, thanks!

Good to know, thank you!
