I get an error rebuilding app after installing the ad plugin

(Scot) #1

I added GitHub - discourse/discourse-adplugin: Official Discourse Advertising Plugin. Install & Start Serving Ads on Your Discourse Forum to the plugin list in app.yml and then did the overwrite and save and exit then ran ./launcher rebuild app and I got this error:

I am not sue what I did wrong and now I get this when I try to pull up my discourse on the web:


I am hoping someone can help me fix this.

Thank you,


Can you show us the app.yml file (the last part)

It seems that the ad plugin is installed twice, after patron plugin, and after askimet

I think I have seen this double entry of plugins before, is there any easy way to check for this and ignore it @sam?

Not really, if you are cloning into the wrong spot this is something we want to error out on. We could do better with the error message though.
