Can you please create a collaborative doc noting down what you’ve done on the instance? Maybe as a new “Post” here on the channel for now?

Not sure if you can edit those at the same time. Otherwise maybe a Google Doc? Or is there any need to create a Github repo, e.g. for versioned config files? Don’t want to overcomplicate it, but I think we need a common scratchpad

So far I’ve set up mailgun, and run through the configuration task on the server. It failed (not sure why) so I manually edited the app.yml file with the correct SMPT details. I’ve also edited app.yml to add some basic plugins:

Rebuilt the app (./launcher rebuild app) it get the app.yml changes

I went through the setup wizard… not sure when that was added, but I suppose its a good idea. I’m currently looking at configuring the settings in admin

app.yml is the main configuration file for discourse. It might be worth versioning it, but I’m not entirely sure how that would work

If we have a backup of the app.yml, that is probably enough for now. If we start getting more advanced in our setup it may be worth version controlling it.

most of the settings are actually managed via the admin interface

adrexia

we can do full forum backups (it also makes them automatically when upgrades are done)

the backups are also the easiest way to get a local version set up
