Unable to find /plugins dir


(Tom Ruh) #1

I have installed my first copy of Discourse. I am following the instructions for installing my first plugin using Install a Plugin However when I try to change dir using cd $home/plugins there is no directory for plugins in /home

I can see that docker_manager is already installed so I have searched for that plugin find / -name "docker_manager" that gives me

Should I just create the dir /home/plugins ? Or is there something that I am missing in my steps?

I have found the problem. I missunderstood the process of eddting the app.yml file. There are some replys to the original article that are helpful.

I use overlay on my blog, but still strongly recommend you use aufs over overlay2 if possible. I tend to run really really high on disk space due to overlay2.
