[Solved]Bootstrap fails, Postgres already running


(Sybren Gjaltema) #1

Hi,

I’m attempting to install Discourse, but am failing so far. It appears that bootstrapping doesn’t want to… bootstrap?
Anyhow, I read a couple of other threads about it and tried “./launcher rebuild app”, which gave the following output:

Where are you installing, what OS? You are following our official guide?

Hi.
I have the same issue. Tried to run “./launcher start app” command from discourse/INSTALL-digital-ocean.md at master · discourse/discourse · GitHub instructions on Amazon EC2 linux ami last version. Everything was fine but during running the command the connection was lost and after reconnecting I getting the same error when trying to run that command again.

What I should to do now?


(Sam Saffron) #6

Reboot. It should fix it.


Error while Bootstrapping Launcher
(Sybren Gjaltema) #7

Installation is at /var/discourse, as per the official installation notes.
Using Debian


(Vitaliy) #8

Thank you! It works! )


(Sybren Gjaltema) #9

Rebooting the whole system seems to have worked. It now passes the initial breaking point, and I’m awaiting full rebuild now. Thanks :slight_smile:


(Ova Light) #10

reboot as in type “reboot” in the cli? cause that didn’t work for me. Im on docker


(Sybren Gjaltema) #11

I meant the whole server. Not just docker, not just cli, everything. All of it.


(Ova Light) #12

Done. Same results. I was doing the same thing before anyways.

reboot your droplet in the digital ocean dashboard, if its a physical server, pull the power cord out.

Or try

sudo reboot

Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong? I already tried rebooting my server from both the digitalocean website and using sudo reboot.

what does docker ps return?

(Sam Saffron) #18

well, if you app is running you can not bootstrap it.

Instead do:

./launcher rebuild app

(Zachary ) #19

@sam okay, and then I try launching? I’m still failing to bootstrap.

"postgres already running " on
(Sam Saffron) #20

launcher rebuild will bootstrap your app and restart it. There is not need to bootstrap AGAIN while the recreated container is already running.

Golden rule if this is confusing you.

never run ./launcher bootstrap ever, just use ./launcher rebuild and you should be good


(Jeff Atwood) #21

If this is the case bootstrap should complain if stuff is running and you’re bootstrapping again. Any rudimentary protection we can add here to reduce support requests?
