i met this problem twice before. The latest one happened two days ago. This kind of problem does not happen often on my website.
But i uploaded my images on the hosting server, rather than s3.
I found out that my “bad” writing habits might cause problems.
my “bad” writting habit:
I will upload images first than cut the markdown links into the local editor. But i don’t close the discourse editor. Afterwards, i will paste them back.
Why do i say that?
“I found out that my “bad” writing habits might cause problems.”
Because the time i set for the following setting just equal the time them disappeared.
clean orphan uploads grace period hours
But I am not sure if it is caused by this reason.
When i totally use the discourse editor ,everything is fine.
What i have done for this:
I deleted the topics then I re-uploaded the content.
I rebaked posts.
I rebuilded the discourse docker instance.
The images are still there. Happy ending
