Using CoreOS 1068.10.0 (stable) and a 2GB DigitalOcean droplet, I’m having trouble upgrading Discourse via the GUI, in that the site stops responding throughout. I am able to log into the machine via SSH however, so at least it hasn’t frozen, which used to be the case when I was still using a 1GB droplet.
I’ve only used this 2GB droplet for a couple of weeks, but while I was still on the 1GB droplet it would freeze every now and then prompting a restart and it would also freeze during upgrade via the GUI (so that I couldn’t even ssh into it). I figured it was simply a matter of running out of memory, so I decided to upgrade to 2GB. However, since the upgrade process still causes the server to become unresponsive, I guess it hasn’t to do with the amount of memory. That said, I did see excessive memory usage on the 1GB droplet one time during upgrade, before it froze.
Could anyone provide me with some advice as to what’s going wrong here? Might it be an incompatibility between CoreOS and Discourse?
