Discourse isn't starting


I recently run out of disk space and following this

my discourse isn’t even starting now… I have no idea what to do now and I need help ASAP

It’s a +2000 users community and I would like to fix it now.

This is the error I get when I try to start:

Unable to find image ‘local_discourse/app:latest’ locally
Pulling repository docker.io/local_discourse/app
Error: image local_discourse/app:latest not found

Did you do a rebuild after you cleared up the disk space problem?


Yes I did. The error I posted was shown at the end of the rebuild. I tried rebuilding again, with the same result

Please post the complete output of the command you ran.


Do you mean the whole output of rebuild command? That’s huge

(Matt Palmer) #6

Yes, the whole output. Something is going badly wrong, and the problem could be anywhere in there.


This is what I can get from console after the rebuild is finished:

Looks like you’re still low on disk space:

Error response from daemon: ... no space left on device

What does your disk space look like:

administrator@proddiscourse:~$ df -h
administrator@proddiscourse:~# cd /var/discourse/
administrator@proddiscourse:/var/discourse# sudo du -h -d 1 |sort -h -r

Free up disk space…


How? I don’t know what to delete. Almost all disk space is consumed by discourse and docker
