I’m currently migrating a discussion board to Discourse. I’m still learning about how Discourse is distributed and set up, but I’ve got the data imported and everything configured.
After importing all the topics, I now have a long list of mappings from the old topic id to the new Discourse topic id.
I’d like to put all of these into rewrite rules and add them to the Nginx server.
My question: what is the best way to do this?
I don’t think it’s a good idea to just put them in the /etc/nginx/conf.d/discourse.conf as that may cause issues when upgrading Discourse in the future. Or won’t it?
Can I put them in a separate conf? Will that file survive when the server restarts and/or updates are made to the Docker container? (or is that not even an issue and should I stop worrying )
