Force reinstall of Discourse through Admin


(Rick Leckrone) #1

Is there a way to force re-update Discourse from the Admin app? I see that Sam has fixed code for the Safari / hamburger menu issue that came up earlier today. Can I somehow trigger a new pull from Github directly from Admin without going to Digital Ocean through SSH and manually updating the css files that were updated on GitHub?

Sorry for lame question. New to this.

If you get stuck use the command line.

cd /var/discourse
./launcher rebuild app

The quickest way to upgrade is to go to yoursite.com/admin/upgrade, if that’s what you’re looking for?

(apologies if this isn’t what you’re looking for, unsure from the combination of topic title & question)

Thanks. I got Discourse with the Digital Ocean assist set up. So when something goes wrong, I get a little out of my comfort zone. Add in Ruby and Docker and it I’m over my head. Really appreciate the good will.

Yes. That’s it. Exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!
