After installing Discourse (
2.7.0.beta1) and importing old Google Groups posts, I added S3 bucket/key configuration (but no CDN URL) and ran
which seemed to be working great. All the images were uploaded to S3 and Discourse was trying to access them via an automatically generated S3 URL-- something like
Then I renamed the bucket (to
ortus-discourse-uploads) and setup a Cloudfront distribution in front of it with a Cloudflare-configured CNAME called
The cname, cloudfront, and S3 are all working great. URLs like this correctly serve up one of the images in the bucket:
However, the issue is that Discourse is completely stuck on the old
ortus-discourse.s3.dualstack.us-west-2.amazonaws.com domain (which doesn’t work due to the bucket being renamed) and no matter how many times I’ve rebuilt the container or rebaked the old posts, I cannot for the life of me get Discourse to use the new CDN URL. I’ve Googled for a day on this and rebaked probably a dozen times (inside the
app container) with various settings. Every forum thread just gives the same advice-- rebuild and rebake, but it isn’t working.
It’s not just the images in posts that are broken, even the
<link rel="icon" type="image/png" href=""> and the site logo are stuck on the old domain and won’t use the S3 CDN URL.
Here are my current S3 settings.
DISCOURSE_S3_ACCESS_KEY_ID: '********' DISCOURSE_S3_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY: '******' DISCOURSE_BACKUP_LOCATION: 's3' DISCOURSE_ENABLE_S3_UPLOADS: true DISCOURSE_S3_BUCKET: 'ortus-discourse-uploads' DISCOURSE_S3_UPLOAD_BUCKET: 'ortus-discourse-uploads' DISCOURSE_S3_BACKUP_BUCKET: 'ortus-discourse-backups' DISCOURSE_S3_REGION: 'us-west-2' DISCOURSE_S3_CDN_URL: https://communitycdn.ortussolutions.com DISCOURSE_CDN_URL: https://community.ortussolutions.com
I’ve even tried remapping the old URL to the new URL in posts like so
but the command said 0 posts affected.
Nowhere in any of my env vars or DB settings do I have anything referencing the old bucket name of
ortus-discourse so I can’t figure out where Discourse keeps getting that from. I’m new to Discourse and not a Ruby dev so I haven’t looked any deeper than what I can see in my app.yml, the admin UI, and the output of the rake commands I’ve found on the forums.
