tl;dr I just broke our Discourse install over an hour ago and need urgent server/docker/container/SSH help to get our paid community site running again. Please DM me if you can help tomorrow (Sunday in North America) so we can discuss me paying you for your help (assuming you don’t help for free).
Here’s the context: I got an admin notification in Discourse that 6505 email jobs had failed and, according to my apparently misunderstanding of this meta thread, I believed restarting my Vultr VPS server could be the solution.
So I logged into our Vultr VPS back-end admin panel, pressed the server restart link, confirmed I wanted to do a hard restart, the server started back up in seconds, and then every forum page I or anyone else has tried to load since has given me a generic “Problem loading page/Unable to connect” message. I have a feeling this has something to do with dockers and containers not reconfiguring/restarting properly after the hard server restart, but I’m in over my head on identifying the root cause and solution.
I can help you SSH for access if you need it. I’m feeling like a giant freakin’ idiot right now and you could help me save face with the community if we could resolve this quickly. Thanks in advance.
(Tagging @pfaffman because it seems like you’ve been helpful for these kinds of things in the past).
