Okay, so I’m trying to get an idea of how discourse operates, so I cloned the repo and started vagrant. Apart from NFS not being installed locally, I got everything running on the first try.
However, now we are at my limit of knowledge. I go into the Admin area and I’m greeted with a lot of potential problems It looks like I can ignore most of them, but these strike me as important (not in any particular order).
- Your server is running in development mode.
- You are running a version of Ruby 2.0.0 that is known to have problems. Upgrade to patch level 247 or later.
- Your config/database.yml file is using the default localhost hostname. Update it to use your site’s hostname.
- Sidekiq is not running. Many tasks, like sending emails, are executed asynchronously by sidekiq. Please ensure at least one sidekiq process is running. Learn about Sidekiq here.
Can someone help me get these resolved? I’m proficient with running commands, but I’ll likely ask a lot more questions, if it doesn’t immediately make sense to me.
Last but not least, I noticed when I ran bundle exec rails s, it seems to control discourse being available. Is there a way to make discourse available and exit out of the ssh console? (Sorry, I’m terribly new when it comes to rails, vagrant, and everything in between)
