How to run uploads:migrate_to_new_pattern rake task

(Tobias Eigen) #1

Can you explain step by step how to run this rake task? I am having problems with accessing attachments on my discourse and need to get this sorted out quickly. Any urgent assistance gratefully accepted! :heart_eyes:

Continuing the discussion from Attachment not found (Latest update):

.Gif files as profile pics?

Hmm, first you should update to latest. You should not have any problem accessing attachments.

Here’s how to run the rake task:

# ssh into server
cd /var/discourse
./launcher enter app
rake uploads:migrate_to_new_pattern

Best tools, materials & practices to onboard a hoarde of new users?

this worked - thanks so much! :slight_smile:

update: hmm… this worked well on one of my sites but on another when I run the ./launcher enter app command I get an error. What’s this about you think?

root@discourse:/var/discourse# ./launcher enter app
Error: Command not found: exec
Error: Command not found: -it

Use ./launcher ssh app instead until you upgrade docker. To do that:

  1. make sure a normal sudo apt-get upgrade completes
  2. Do it again, you should see “lxc-docker held back”
  3. sudo apt-get upgrade lxc-docker

hah - unintended consequence: today, a few days later the site logo stopped working… presumably because of this rake task that changed the URLs for accessing uploads, affecting the site assets topic.

(Régis Hanol) #6

It should have changed it in the site settings too… Cache issue? Does a restart of the application fix it?

(Tobias Eigen) #7

I didn’t restart - just changed the URLs in the site settings and the logos are back.

The missing images problem actually just showed up today suddenly - a day after I ran the rake task! So maybe I’m actually wrong about what caused it.
