I am having an issue signing into our forum ( after signing out.

After authenticating through Discord, I’m being sent to the following URL:

Thanks in advance!

Not that I can help, but it may help others looking to help you.


Please update to latest, we recently changed the code around that.

SSH into the server

cd /var/discourse
./launcher rebuild app

I have attempted that twice and am still receiving the error.

Apparently, the issue was stemming from using for Discord authentication instead of the built-in method.

Not sure when it was added, but using it now and everything is working smoothly!

Thank you all for your assistance!


Oh, that’d do it. My branch was the original repo for the plugin, and hasn’t been updated to allow for core’s plugin, like the repo under discourse was.

I’ll update that to mirror discourse’s repo as well. Sorry for the trouble, and well sleuthed!


No problem!

It was serving me well!

Thank you for leading the charge!


Hi, maybe this isn’t the right topic (don’t know if I should open a different one) but I’m experiencing this issue with the LDAP Auth plugin. Can it be related?
