You need to SSH into your server, and edit your app.yml file (it’s just a text file)

It is located in /var/discourse/containers/.

I’m a little layman on this, if I pass SSH access, would you do it for me? Haha

(David Taylor) #8

I can’t, but if you post in #marketplace someone might be able to help

(Wiliam Joaquim) #9

Use this eating to access?

cd /var/discourse


This is not working :confused:

(cpradio) #10

You are missing a command there.

cd /var/discourse
sudo nano containers/app.yml

(Wiliam Joaquim) #11

What do I do next?

(cpradio) #12

Scroll to the bottom (using Page Dn), till you see the last - git clone ... command

Then add a new line, use spaces to ensure your - lines up (must be spaces, do not use tab) and paste the new git clone command
git clone

Then press CTRL + X, answer Y to save, press enter again (I think), then once at the console run
sudo ./launcher rebuild app

I did what you taught me, the site went offline, is it normal?

(cpradio) #15

Yes, it will go offline during a rebuild. It will be back up once the rebuild completes.

(Wiliam Joaquim) #16

Did you appreciate it, installed correctly?

(cpradio) #17

Would seem not, it seems your app.yml has an invalid character in it. On line 98. You can use nano to edit it again, and press CTRL + C to see what line your cursor is on. Find line 98 and take a screenshot of that area. If there is any sensitive info, such as passwords or email addresses, be sure to use an editing tool to blur them out.

(Wiliam Joaquim) #18

I did what you mentioned, that’s what happened!


I think what @cpradio meant was to go back into your app.yml file as per above

(Wiliam Joaquim) #20

The site is still offline, will I miss it?:disappointed_relieved:

I understand that you want to get your site up and running as fast as possible. But if you are a newbee in this kind of stuff (like myself), you need to take your time and carefully read and follow instructions.

And although instructions are often written in a very step by step manner (thank you to all tutorial writers :+1:) I suggest you also try to understand (at a basic level) what you are actually doing in each step. That takes a bit longer but will safe you time and hassle in the long run, because you gradually get knowledgeable in what you’re doing.

Thanks for the suggestion, I will take more care when running something, but you need the solution plugin.

(cpradio) #23

Can you please run

sudo nano /var/discourse/containers/app.yml

Find Line 98 and post a screenshot here. Be sure to blur out any sensitive info in the screenshot.

(Wiliam Joaquim) #24

I was able to install, thanks for the help!

The plugins are active, but the solution icon still does not appear

(David Taylor) #25

You need to enable it in each category’s settings. Have another read through the plugin’s thread I linked earlier
