Update problem : Broken Forum

Hi,

I have a problem with last update. My forum is broken
I have this message on SSH.

Do you have idea where is the problem and how fixed ?

Thanks you very much

Hi,

here is a pastebin of the whole process. There are obviously some errors with postgresql even if I am not sure that the problem comes from there

https://pastebin.com/nqLWDRAC

How did you install? What postgres are you using?

I logged with root.
I can’t have better privileges :slight_smile:

I don’t know for postgres
“The program ‘pg_config’ can be found in the following packages:”

The forum is online.
I restart the server.

The first problem is fixed but i have a second.

I have this error “500 Internal Server Error” when i create or respond post

Do you have idea how fixed ?

Do you have idea what is the problem ?

Is this a standard install?

yes,

i use the forum since 6 years.

The last version installed is 2.9.0.beta3

Do you have any plugins installed? Maybe post your app.yml?

What is your postgres version? Just do launcher enter app and then type psql -V

Hi,

I test but the original problem is back

I think there was a problem when updating it because there was not enough space on the hard disk. I freed up some space and now I have 67% elibre. However, there is an existing problem, but which one?

The program ‘psql’ is currently not installed.
do i have to install it?

Did you do

  launcher enter app

Before the psql command?

It’s same,
I try install but i have this message

E: The package libperl5.22 needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.

I have taken another look at your pastebin logfile. It says Postgres 10.
Are you sure this is a standard setup which has been installed according to discourse/INSTALL-cloud.md at main · discourse/discourse · GitHub ?

I’ve said it before, the forum has been around for many years and I’ve never had any major problems. Generally, a rebuild or update was enough to get everything going again.
Yes, it’s normal installation

My last attempt.

Can you please do

cd /var/discourse
./launcher enter app
psql -V

and copy this entirely into a reply, including the commands and output?

psql (PostgreSQL) 10.19 (Debian 10.19-1.pgdg110+1)

Ok, great. That’s a different result than last time.
So now please do the following

cd /var/discourse
git pull
./launcher rebuild app

and if you get errors please post the ENTIRE output, including your commands, in a reply (or on Pastebin)

Interestingly I’ve experienced either the same or similar error. Running on Discourse 2.9.0.beta2 and tried to update to ß3. I’ve disabled all plugins except docker_manager for ./launcher rebuild app. Running on an external PGSQL db at version:

$ psql --version
psql (PostgreSQL) 14.1 (Ubuntu 14.1-1.pgdg18.04+1)

I can restart the container via ./launcher restart app following the failure, but when replies return a 500 error.

The end error during rebuild/upgrade is:

The actual meaningful errors above may be found here: https://p153.p0.n0.cdn.getcloudapp.com/items/jkuvPekN/feb38236-3b84-410e-8fac-d1864d02ba69.txt?v=eb1d15e029cb07a73300d8ec07318876

I’m having a hard time believing that this is an actual permission issue and I’m hesitant to give the Discourse DB use super user/root permission to pgsql.

Any further thoughts on what could be going on here with such a recent breakage?
