Discourse Backup from AWS

Hi All,

I had hosted the Discourse on AWS using the Bitnami instance but looks like there are lot of limitations in it and even the setup isn’t as per the recommendation from Discourse document. For example: I am not able to find /var/discourse directory.

So, just wanted to check if it is possible to backup all the discourse assets like theme, category and other settings that can be then restored to different instance on Digital Ocean or Vultr.

The standard Discourse backup will backup all that. Go to Settings > Backups and create one and download it.

After installing Discourse properly in a different server, go to Settings > Backups and upload your backup for restore.


Thanks Rafael, I updated the email and received the email with backup link.
