Why is every thread here closed? There are several relevant threads where I feel like it would make more sense to post my individual questions, but every old thread is closed (whether or not the problem was actually solved). Doesn’t this make it hard to identify when several people are having the same problem?
The install directions are no good. I had to cobble together answers from multiple sets of directions to get it working. ALSO, why in the world would I ever run a remote script without seeing its contents? This is the worst installation method ever.
I eventually got Docker & Discourse running. Everything was fine, except I couldn’t SSH into the docker container. I’ve seen multiple statements that this is supposed to be “automatic” now. It’s not. How do I fix it? I’ve seen comments about copying a key somewhere, but no one says where I get the key (or even what key it is).
The upgrade doesn’t work. It looks to me like it’s trying to do operations that require admin privileges without using sudo. Normally I would just SSH and run the commands with sudo myself, but I can’t (see 3).
Seriously regretting choosing this “modern” forum solution instead of an old standby.
P.S. I’m a professional linux admin and systems analyst. If I have this much trouble, what is the rest of the planet going to do?
