I’m a Windows guy with little Linux knowledge
I installed Ubuntu server 14.04 on VMware and installed the Discourse docker as per instructions, including the email setup. I created an admin account and I can login to my Discourse install.
I have a separate (Windows) server with a copy of a phpBB database (only the database, no phpBB install) on MySQL. I don’t need the existing attachment or avatar pictures for now.
I was able to go ‘into’ the Docker and find the pre-installed phpbb3.rb script but I don’t know how to edit it or overwrite it with an edited script from my Windows machine into the Docker (with Putty/SSH). Nano (as per the install instructions) is not available in the Docker.
I tried to run the pbpbb3.rb script with the default values (just to see if I could run it) but it says the required “mysql2” GEM cannot be found. I found a command (gem install mysql2) to install the mysql2 GEM but that also failed:
ERROR: Error installing mysql2: ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.
I have no idea what I am doing really and would really appreciate some beginner instructions for the problems above.
