How to update Discourse

Discourse (the software that runs these forums) should be updated regularly. if you’re an admin and have noticed that Discourse is out of date, you should schedule a maintenance window to update it. Updating can be done like so:

Step 1: SSH into the server

Discourse currently runs on fs-docker. SSH into fs-docker now.

Step 2: Update Discourse

To update Discourse, the container must be rebuilt. Do that like so:

git pull
./launcher rebuild app
