Replace with taobao mirror to resolve network error in China hosts its resource in Amazon S3 which is disturbed by GFW. So gem and bundle complain from time to time.

This guide assumes you used docker installation. This guide also has a version in Chinese. 中文指南

Add a template

Open your congiruation file, say, app.yml.

Add a reference to the china template:

  - "templates/postgres.template.yml"
  - "templates/redis.template.yml"
  - "templates/sshd.template.yml"
  - "templates/web.template.yml"
  - "templates/web.china.yml"

Bootstrap docker container

Rebuild your app

./launcher rebuild app

Or bootstrap:

./launcher bootstrap app

You are done! Everything should work then.

Please update your discourse_docker by git pull origin master and try again.

I think the template file’s path should be “templates/web.china.template.yml”.

it looks like this suggestion has been implemented. could you update the original topic so that it reflects the appropriate fix?


Hi @fantasticfears Thanks share this tips. I’m going to self-host Discourse to avoid Discourse-host issue like blocked from access and performance.
Do you know if Discouse source code itself has any service request that blocked by GFW. if it’s does a self-host cannot guarantee the sevice in mainland China.

ps. is not available now.
