i wanted to update to latest version but it failed
when i do
./launcher rebuild app
the system is asking me to clean space, and retry, then it keeps doing that looping to clean space, and cannot launch
i have vps of 20 gb is this enough ?
/var/lib/docker/overlay2 is 14 GB !!
can i delete some stuff inside ?
i tried docker system prune, it did nothing
when i ls /overlay 2 i got this
do i need all this how do i know which one i could delete ?
discourse is offline responding error 500
i just did a launcher cleanup
Total reclaimed space: 3.318GB
but when i do ./launcher start app
it redownloads the image.
it downloads 2 images, discourse
but it keeps repeating
Would you like to attempt to recover space by cleaning docker images and containers in the system? (y/N)y
and redownloading images
maybe i’ll try to delete backups, not all
I’m not a fan of OVH, though I rent them my main VPS.
I mostly use Hetzner for my other forums or temporary stuff, it’s billed per hour (OVH is per month).
If you struggle, I would recommend upgrading (maybe resetting it to start fresh) your server or creating a new one, then installing Discourse and restoring your backup. It’s often faster than spending time trying to fix some issue.
I also often heard that OVH has a bad reputation. I’ve been using them for a long time.
Their dashboard is wonky and slow, and their price might be a bit higher than other companies, but I didn’t encounter any particular issue with them, except one time when I was unable to renew my Plesk license (they’re a reseller). It took many messages back and forth to finally have them recognize that the issue was on their end.
I like Hetzner because their interface is intuitive, they’re not expensive even though they increased their price by about 10% recently and they bill per hour.
Depending on your vps host you maybe able to increase your server size package.
Also if you have a lot of backuos in discourse consider deleting older ones that are no longer needed. You can also download your backups off site to local storage as well… However likely best to keep most recent backup on the server.
