How to move from standalone setup to separate containers?

Very much prefer if there is an easy to follow guide like the official one w standalone container.

@tuananh I’m working on the exact same thing, with the hope of creating a guide. Right now I haven’t found a very specific guide. Here’s a description of my discoveries thus far. Running a separate data container.

Is it just possible to save a backup and then import to a new discourse? Is everything copied over?


(Kane York) #4

Yes, this is correct - once you have the new setup working, you can just restore a backup (followed by a ./launcher restart web_a && ./launcher restart web_b) and it will work.

I managed to do this just recently. The most disconcerting thing about restoring from backup is that it appears to never finish. It works though :slight_smile: Also, it might look like the setting are not restored but a restart will fix that.
