I try to add some plugins after restoring a site from a backup and delete the app.yml by mistake, will my site get wiped out if I do ./discourse-setup again?
I’m still new here, but I believe that if you don’t delete your /shared directory, all your data will be safe. What the ./discourse-setup will change are the plugins, smtp settings and then run rebuild. I would wait for further confirmation, as I’m a new user, but I’m almost sure of that.
You can always do a backup and restore later as well. Check this article for more information on that.
Nice work, @italo!
Yes, it should be safe to run discourse-setup again and your data should be intact.
You might do
cd /var/discourse ./launcher start app
That will restart your old container.
./launcher enter app discourse backup
That will make a backup.
exit to get out of the container.
