I just made a backup but can’t find it anywhere, logs show…
[2022-03-01 10:05:53] Making sure '/var/www/discourse/public/backups/default' exists...
But it doesn’t exist! Where could the backup be?
I thought the backup would be on the new storage drive, what am I missing here?
Should ./launcher rebuild app reset the forum everytime?
I cannot upload anything, images etc either, I hate that this always breaks my build when I follow what I feel should be decent guides on doing things, I just wanted to add some storage to my existing hosting, now I’m without a website, so frustrating
On top of all this, I am having to wait for letsencrypt, I believe this takes a week as I didn’t realise a rebuild would try to get a new certificate each and every time, so I have exhausted my trys, I can not access the site at all until I have the SSL certs, http works for a minute but then it is forced to https meaning I can not register
I haven’t moved anything to the new volume yet I want some clarity because I followed the steps exact and it didn’t work.
I don’t understand that post at all and I’m done messing with it for now, I’ll just wait because like you say, it’s frustrating, I just want my site back up and running and a snapshot of it before I do anything else
Then it can’t work, and you didn’t follow the directions; a safer way to do it would be to copy stuff to new volume, so you could more easily switch back and forth. Maybe the instructions would feel safer it if included copying the files and then deleting them (which is exactly what mv does since it’s moving across partitions.)
