Disable plugin without downtime?


(Chris Beach) #1

I’m having some trouble with a plugin and I’d like to disable it. Unfortunately there’s no plugin setting to do so, so I’ll need to remove it via my app.yml

Question is - can I do this in a way that minimises downtime? I’m running a standalone Docker container, and I’m worried that doing a ./launcher rebuild app will result in very noticeable downtime for my forum instance.

The admin/upgrade process seems to elegantly mitigate downtime.

Is there a way of disabling this plugin with only a few seconds of downtime?

A safe mode will come soon. But for now, it’s not possible if the plugin doesn’t have the setting to activate/deactivate it
