I’m facing a problem that has been tangentially treated in a previous thread, but to which I can’t seem to find a solution.
I was running a legacy Discourse install (coming back from version 0.5-0.6 or so, but updated up to 0.9.8.5 if i remember well), installed using the then-fancy Ubuntu install guide. My server died mercilessly yesterday. I have backups… but not the kind of modern backups that Discourse sports today (no dashboard dump file), instead I have a postgresql dump and a lot of files.
As I intend to start from scratch using Docker now that destiny has given me the chance ( ), my problems are centered in getting back the
public/uploads into a container. At the same time, I can restore my database into Postgresql, but I don’t know how to make my containers use it.
In the previously linked thread we can find some solution that is in part what I need (as it delves into the problem of reconverting old installs into docker installs) and in part exactly what I dont need, as my server is dead and I don’t have a running instance to which I can do this git/rake work.
I managed to get a docker install alive and running in 0.0.0.0:80, it is completely blank, any ideas on how may i get my database and uploaded files loaded and rake:migrated to the latest numbered version so I can do a proper dashboard export and reimport in the now recommended-easy way?
Thank you all in advance,
