I just updated Discourse and now it doesn't work. Please help


(eiklid) #1

I just updated to the latest beta and the update stopped halfway through and I got an error message. It won’t send out emails and I can’t post new topics. The docker tells me to upgrade to the latest version but when I click on it it says that everything is up to date.

When I try to post a new topic I get this:
Unknown error saving post, try again. Error: 500 Internal Server Error

I also get this message in my admin panel:
There are 8 email jobs that failed. Check your config/discourse.conf file and ensure that the mail server settings are correct. See the failed jobs in Sidekiq.


Can anyone help??

Just ssh in and do this

cd /var/discourse
./launcher rebuild app

And you should be good. You may want to upgrade Docker as well, see the 1.0 pinned upgrade topic for info on that.
