We have a Discourse installation built from sources in 2016 and we need to move it to a different machine. Is an upgrade to modern Discourse running in docker possible? If it isn’t I am going to try get that version working but am running into assorted problems.
Hey David, welcome to Meta
What version is the old installation running on?
If it’s a very old version, then I would recommend taking a backup, creating a new staging server following the official guide, and then restoring the backup there. If everything works as expected, then you’re all set and you can create a new production server following the same guide and then restore the backup there.
If not, please feel free to post any issues you encounter and we’ll try to help
Thanks. It’s whatever was on master when it was installed. I will try your suggestion.
