Directions for Updating Discourse Server


Probably only for me, but you never know – this could help someone else, too.

Step 1

Open Terminal. It’s that scary looking blank black screen.

Step 2

Type ssh

Step 3

It will ask for a password. Give it Droplet password.

Step 4

Now you’re in the server. Now type
cd /var/discourse
git pull
./launcher rebuild app

Step 5

Hit enter to get it running.

Step 6

Wait. It will take some time. Then it will start to excitedly update. This is the best part.

Step 7

It’s all done when you see var/discourse in a different color.

Step 8

Hit exit. You are done!
