Where do the local backups go? (when S3 backups aren't enabled)

We had daily backups turned on via this thing: Hot off the presses, automated backup support!

However, we had not yet setup the S3 settings.

Anyway, I accidentally rebuilt my Digital Ocean droplet, and a few days worth of content is gone. I’m wondering if there is a way to access those backups. /var/discourse/shared/standalone/backups/ is empty.

They are stored locally, but not sure the exact path, @zogstrip can probably answer.

@balupton Have you tried looking inside the container at /var/www/discourse/public/backups/default?

Or outside the container at /var/discourse/shared/standalone/backups/default.


/var/discourse/shared/standalone/backups/default that was the spot for me :slight_smile: thanks @riking
