How do I activate all inactive members at the click of a button?

currently the mail server is not running so new members do not receive activation wizard …
How do I activate them all with one click of a button or with a command line and how to remove activation of electronic mail?

Why isn’t the mail server running? How many new users do you need to activate?


its hard to sai bc i can see the number of inactive users but alot …

so i think its about 5k ore 10k activation emails …

I suggest you fix your mail server.

Activation is required because you don’t have the right to email users with unverified email addresses.

You need to fix your email.

You can manually activate users by visiting their admin page and pressing the “activate” button.

How do you have 10k new users signing up in a few days? Are you Taylor Swift?

You can search here for something like “rails update users” and get some examples. Something like

 User.all.update_all(active: true) 

You should not do that without a bit more research and taking a backup. It might kill your dog.


i changed forum from ipboard to discourse the forum got in ipboard more then 25k users so thei reregistered to discourse

481k jobs in the queue is not healthy :scream:

You need to ensure sidekiq is properly running, otherwise your Discourse won’t function properly.
