I did a backup of my site before I upgraded to the latest version of the discourse however I can’t even access my site any more even though the upgrade appears to be successful as no error is displayed. Is there anyway that I can restore my site from the backup that I created earlier from terminal app as I can’t access the site?
Is it possible?
If yes, where do discourse save or store the backups that I executed from the admin panel?
Is there any guide on how to restore the site from backup?
This seems like a handy thing to be able to do since if you screw up configuring SSO you can’t get back into your site. I spent a week one day trying to get SSO configured, and now that it is configured correctly it seems that my account on the SSO (which I don’t control) is gone, so I can’t get in.
So, script/discourse restore fails because thor isn’t installed.
gem install thor fixes that, but then I’m still denied because:
URGENT: FATAL: Peer authentication failed for user "discourse"
Solving my immediate problem, I suppose I could turn off SSO from the Rails console. . .
edit: to disable SSO from the rails console:
./launcher enter app
The goal was to automate it without any entering container with the launcher.
Imagine your instance got lost for any reason. The only files you stored in git was your containers/app.yml and luckily you have a daily tarball backup.
I wasn’t sure if that was the correct way to access a file “outside the app from within the app”, but it seemed to find the backup file and start the restore. The restore finished with the ambiguous messages:
Tried to access my forum again, but it’s still not working, so I guess the restore didn’t work?
