I got an error after updating my forked install

I typed the command as follows

cd / var / discourse
git pull
./launcher rebuild app

I got a caution statement like the following

You will less than 5 GB of free space on the disk where / var / lib / docker is located.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/ dev / vda 1 25 G 20 G 4.4 G 82% /

(Y / N) y (y / N) y Would you like to try to recover space by cleaning docker images and containers in the system?
WARNING! This will remove:
        - all stopped containers
        - all networks not used by at least one container
        - all dangling images
        - all build cache
Are you sure you want to continue? [Y / N] N
If the cleanup was successful, you may try try now now

Based on the following topics

I typed the following command

sudo ./launcher rebuild app --skip-prereqs

I am having trouble keeping the site down.
Please tell me how to deal with it!

I have backed up my site before doing sudo ./launcher rebuild app --skip-prereqs

Why did you answer N and cancel the cleanup? That should make space for you to rebuild without using --skip-prereqs


After doing “./launcher rebuild app --skip - prereqs”, the site did not open and I ran “./launcher rebuild app” and chose y …

Is there a way to restore the site?

Were you able to make space to complete the rebuild?

If the rebuild failed and it didn’t delete the old docker image then you can probably just

cd /var/discourse
./launcher start app

To get back to the old version, but you clearly have a storage issue you need to tackle.

cd / var / discourse
./ launcher start app

With the commands above the site is now to stand up, Thank you very much.

How can I update the site after all?
I’m sorry for the novice question.

After launching, I typed the following command again, but this time the warning message was not displayed and started rebuilt, and the site did not open again.

cd / var / discourse
git pull
./launcher rebuild app

Currently the site is standing up with the following command again.

cd / var / discourse
./ launcher start app

Still don’t know how to fix this :sob:

How much space does your server have in total?

Where are you using it?

We can’t even begin to advise you on this without some information to go on. It may well be outside the scope of the support we provide here, but without some data it’s impossible to even say that definitively.

My DigitalOcean’s droplet is “1 GB Memory / 25 GB Disk / SGP1 - Ubuntu 16.04.4 x64“ :slight_smile:

Does anyone know the way to fix a storage issue which what happend to me :sob:

This is a server maintenance issue as opposed to a Discourse issue.

Use df whilst connected via SSH to look at free vs available space - what else do you have on this server? How big are your backups?

The size of backup of my site is 57.1MB

According to that you’ve got 16GB free, which is plenty. You should be able to upgrade fine without problem now.

cd /var/discourse
./launcher rebuild app

Once you’ve done the above there’s no need to do another upgrade on the web interface, this will do it all.

hmmm… it does not also work…

** FAILED TO BOOTSTRAP ** please scroll up and look for earlier error messages, there may be more than one

When I did “git pull”, it showed “Already up-to-date”. Is it relevant to this problem?

What version is specified in /var/discourse/containers/app.yml

Is it tests-passed? or something else?

How did you install Discourse? Did you follow the official installation guide?

Version which is written in /var/discourse/containers/app.yml is “tests-passed”.
But this is commented out by default.
#version: tests-passed

Yes I installed Discourse followed official installation guide.

I have already managed site for 3 months without any such update error.

Is this error perhaps what I should fix in ./launcher rebuild app?

Hmmm still confusing

That’s an odd error. Have you rebuilt more than once?
