Operations

forum.netzwissen.de läuft mit separaten Containern für Datenbank und Web. Siehe https://meta.discourse.org/t/how-to-move-from-standalone-container-to-separate-web-and-data-containers/29413 Entsprechend gibt es separate *.yml Konfigurationen für den Daten-Container und den Web-Container.

Plugins

Maintenance

- One CPU and 1GB of memory, with swap, is the minimum for a basic Discourse community. As your community grows you may need more memory or CPU resources.

- [Our Docker container install](https://github.com/discourse/discourse/blob/master/docs/INSTALL.md) is the only one we officially support. It guarantees easy updates, and all recommended optimizations from the Discourse team.

- You should get an email notification when new versions of Discourse are released. To update your instance via our easy one click upgrade process, visit [/admin/upgrade](/admin/upgrade).

- Some other things you might eventually want to set up:

  1. [Multiple Discourse instances on the same server](https://meta.discourse.org/t/multisite-configuration-with-docker/14084)
  2. [Import old content from vBulletin, PHPbb, Vanilla, Drupal, BBPress, etc](https://github.com/discourse/discourse/tree/master/script/import_scripts)
  3. A firewall on your server? [Configure firewall](https://meta.discourse.org/t/configure-a-firewall-for-discourse/20584).
  4. A user friendly [offline page when rebuilding or upgrading?](https://meta.discourse.org/t/adding-an-offline-page-when-rebuilding/45238)
cd /var/discourse git pull ./launcher rebuild app

User Operations

Mass invite

  1. One user per line.
  2. Email is required in the first column, and the email must be valid.
  3. Any permissions groups you want this user to be a member of should be in second column. For multiple groups, separate group names with a semicolon group_1;group_2;group_3
  4. Normally invited users arrive at the homepage. If you would rather invited users end up on a specific topic, enter that Topic ID in the third column.

name@example.com,group_1;group_2,topic_id

Backup & Restore

root@docker2:/var/discourse# ./launcher enter web_only

discourse backup
<code>

Beim Backup übers UI wird ein Link an die Admin Adresse geschickt. Der Link enthält einen passenden token, der zeitlich begrenzt und nur im gleichen Auth Kontext funktioniert.

Die Restore Datei muss nach /var/discourse/shared/web-only/backups/default

Um "aus Versehen" überschreiben zu vermeinden, muss enable_restore explizit aktiviert sein.

root@docker2:/var/discourse# ./launcher enter web_only
