Hi all, good day.
You may have been aware that I created my first Discourse community well over 2 weeks ago on AWS, but used their Bitnami AMI image, which of course is not the supported install. And well, as expected, I ran into problems and tried my best to resolve them but it kept piling up. The last problem I had was an error top (server error) which couldn’t show up my community. I had to reboot my server, and like flash, I lost everything I built within the earlier 2 weeks. That’s a lot of content, believe me!
Whilst I’m not crying about spilt milk here (obviously, this community has enough warning about using the recommended installation details which is what my repented person would be doing now ), but I would not want to start from scratch again about database and content. In a nutshell, I’d be glad if anyone can help out with tangible information on how I can get the database details and all necessary info that would be integrated in my New install so I can still have all registered users logs/details and their activities. And then, nothing would really have been lost in the whole process. It’d be a learning curve for me.
And one important point to note: I’ll still be hosting on AWS. At least, there’s a recommended installation process that involves docker, and besides, my $1k credit can not be left to waste away. So I’d be glad if all the information would be tailored for use on their platform with any of their service that’d make this wonderful journey worthwhile.
And don’t loud this: My growing community is now offline for 3 days. So I’ve got a reputation to save. So let’s do this, peeps!
