Migration problems with upload of backups


(Nate Kobe) #1

We had a working version of Discourse and I tried to migrate today however I ran into some issues.

The backup went fine but when I want to upload on the new forum, I get errors.

https://hostname/admin/backups/upload?resumableChunkNumber=3&resumableChunkSize=1048576&resumableCurrentChunkSize=1048576&resumableTotalSize=15161015&resumableType=application%2Fgzip&resumableIdentifier=15161015-simulcation-2018-06-21-093404-v20171228122834targz&resumableFilename=backup.tar.gz    

returns a 404 Not Found. It then continues to a /upload but then it says
413 Request Entity Too Large

I tried to copy the file manually inside the container in /backup/default however it does not show up anywhere.

Any ideas how I can get this backup without importing manually ?

Outside the container (for a standard install) try copying the file to

/var/discourse/shared/standalone/backups/default

That’s where my files are but how do I actually restore them now ?

EDIT : Managed to upload my backup, I just misnamed the file.
