Due to disk space constraints, I had to do a backup and restore without thumbnails. The process went very smoothly. I was nervous, but everything worked perfectly and the whole procedure was very painless. The Discourse team did a great job at making that task easy.
Now, as expected, I have lots of missing images, and also unexpectedly, missing avatars. Searching has led me to a lot of conflicting information. Some posts say I need to rebake everything, with many different ways to go about it. Others say Sidekiq will do this automatically. There doesn’t seem to be a current definitive answer to this I can find. Triggering Sidekiq tasks doesn’t seem to do much, and the Rails console doesn’t even recognize ‘rebake’.
Not sure what to do. Something? Nothing? I’m lost.
