Site Settings keep changing

Strange one this. Upon refreshing the settings page, I sometimes get different values for settings.

I’ve checked in the rails console that the values aren’t actually changing in the DB, but I get inconsistent results in the UI.

There’s obviously some kind of caching going on somewhere, but I thought I’d see if anyone’s come across this before.

As always, any help would be greatly appreciated :+1:


Try restarting the app container (./launcher restart app). Looks like one of your Unicorn workers is out of sync.


Ahh. The client I’m working for actually runs Discourse on AWS with an ELB. I’m suspecting that could be the cause of this issue.

I realise it’s not a supported setup here, but any insight into how the settings are being cached across processes would be great. If anyone has any ideas on how to fix, even better!
