Latest Update - Official Ad Plugin Broke Site


I did the one-push upgrade this morning and once the upgrade was complete, I was greeted with a white page with a warning on it indicating that the plugin had failed. I should have taken a screenshot but was in a rush. I just went in, deleted the plugin, and rebuilt. No issues after that.

I’ll try to recreate the issue soon - I just prefer not having a whole lot of down time. Wanted to share this with the group for awareness.

Unlikely as we ship this plugin on our hosting, and have for some time.


It’s probably the issue that @neil fixed here:


Looks like this issue is still around. This upgrade from the Admin:

from_version: 3388cc0, e101e6a, 297aefc
repository: /var/www/discourse, /var/www/discourse/plugins/discourse-adplugin, /var/www/discourse/plugins/discourse-data-explorer

broke the site:

Rebuilding the app brought the site back up.


That is the exact error I received. Thanks for posting / and re-creating. :star_struck:

Hmm I don’t understand the problem then. We deploy this to our hosting, and it has no auto_generated directory and doesn’t show an error. We don’t use admin to upgrade though, so it might have something to do with that.
