Hi friends. Continuing the discussion from Keeping this Forum Updated:
Morning @bfb @the @fnord if you all have a little time this weekend let’s jump into tmux and do #unicorn maintenance! It was both fun and fruitful on our last database migration. We could meet on https://jitsi.noisebridge.io/unicorn
What are we addressing?
Upgrade to PostgreSQL 13 from 12. We did this migration last time together, too!!
- v12 database backup will need to be stored externally since we are at 92% disk capacity.
- Perhaps we can reclaim some disk space on the server.
Discourse rebuild will fix Follow plugin, which is causing errors. Those bugs were fixed upstream.
Rebuild will remove Babble chat plugin as it is broken, causing errors, and unmaintained. Too bad, it was cool.
As a bonus, we could setup some simple gallery tool for photos as Tyler requested over on Good photo album software for Noisebridge?
This data migration should address the majority of our paper cut forum errors impacting performance.
