Where is my discourse in FTP filezilla?


(flexihack) #1

I used the Filezilla software on my computer to have access to folders and files. I have a Discourse installed on Digitalocean. Not sure where my discourse are located.

No one? @codinghorror can you help me?

The data files should be in the /var/discourse/shared/standalone/ folder.

But are you looking to modify the HTML Handlebars templates? You’ll need to write a plugin to do that.

Yes, replacing modified files via FTP is possible.

But doing so this way is a maintenance nightmare, you’ll need to do so every upgrade.
Not impossibble, but a real PITA

Much better to invest the time and effort into putting together a plugin that will deal with your modifications

But you’ll also need to recompile assets if you change any JS files, in order for the changes to be, you know, actually picked up…
