These are the instructions for updating the Discourse Forums used by the Lubbock LUG.
First and foremost BACKUP the Forum before updating.
A backup can be done through the Forum administration panel. If you don’t have administrative access, and would like it, please let me know.
- SSH into the discourse back end. (If you are an administrator in the LUG you’ll have credentials for this.)
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade -y
- CD into the Discourse folder
- Run the following
./launcher stop app
./launcher rebuild app
./launcher start app
Once complete the site should be back up and running.
