Does ./launcher rebuild keep all settings & posts?

(Dylan Damsma) #1

Hi there,

I’ve just upgraded the DO server on which the Discourse forum at is hosted from a 1GB instance to a 2GB instance.

Then I changed the the app.yml file to use 3 unicorn_workers instead of 2. (Anything else I should increase to speed up the forum?).

Now, I want to run: ./launcher rebuild app - However, I’m afraid it would change admin settings and or reset the entire discourse install? Would it?

It might be a dumb question, but I never worked with Docker.

Since the database and all images/attachments are stored outside of the container, it’s 100% safe to do a ./launcher rebuild app :wink:

Hi @zogstrip, thanks for the quick reply. Running it now and praying none of the styling, settings or category changes get overwritten.

Confirmed this worked. Thanks @zogstrip
