I’ve recently installed multisite on a 2GB RAM DO droplet with 6 sites. I think I should probably use a higher RAM option and yet since all forums will be really small for the start, was hoping I could start cheap.
Regardless, when I go to upgrade from the admin page of any of the forums, including the main/default forum, when I click on the blue upgrade button, the button turns to gray and says “Upgrading…” but then I don’t see anything appear in the black terminal box below, as I would normally see on my single-site installations.
It has been at least 10-15 minutes now and I still don’t see anything and am unsure if it’s making any progress.
Any idea why this might be happening?
Am I able to upgrade from any of the forums’ UIs?
If not, do I have to upgrade the multisite from the command line?
Edit: I reset the upgrade, waited a bit, refreshed the page, and tried to upgrade the Discourse Assign plugin and then info showed in the box that I didn’t have enough unicorn workers, I think from the previous upgrade. I clicked upgrade for that plugin and it worked, so I’m assuming the problem was that I just don’t have enough RAM, as per this How to avoid upstream timeouts? - #2 by mpalmer
Yeah that’s what I was planning to do. I noticed just upgrading the ram/CPU will give me the same price as upgrading with the larger disk as well, but would prefer the reversible ram/CPU option for now and if I find that it works or a higher level that works, then I may upgrade with the added disk space (if possible at the same price) or start a new droplet and recreate them there.
@pfaffman, I’m really grateful for your help, your words, and so much that you’ve done on Meta to make it easier for someone like me to install and manage—thank you.
