Hi there -
I’ve been running Discourse on DigitalOcean for the past two years. Just this week I tried to upgrade and every time I tried to do it from the control panel it would fail.
I tried SSH’ing in and doing it manually, but for some reason DO’s setup of Discourse–at least at the time I originally set it up–didn’t have the
var/discourse directory. Regardless, now I’m getting 502 and I can’t get my application to start back up again. Running the logs app from the
/docker directory I get
Could not find activesupport-4.2.8 in any of the sources
What I would love to do is to start completely over - perhaps by installing with whatever new paradigm DO/Discourse has for 2017 BUT I want to be able to keep my old database - my years of posts, comments, etc.
Is there any resource or suggestion anyone would have about how to go about doing this? I would super appreciate it as I have a pretty big active community that is wondering what happened!
