Upgrading the Discourse image


Until now I’ve simply clicked on the “click here to upgrade” link in the Dashboard, and that’s worked find. Now however I’m told…

You are running an old version of the Discourse image.
Upgrades via the web UI are disabled until you run the latest image.
To do so log in to your server using SSH and run:
cd /var/discourse
git pull
./launcher rebuild app

Can anyone provide advice on how to do this? How do I “log into my server using SSH” etc
We’re hosting at digitalocean.

Whoever set your server up to begin with did so via SSH. You’re going to need the credentials they used to follow the steps outlined in that message.


Thanks Steve - I contacted digital ocean and think I’m on the right track.
