#1

I’m starting my own Discourse instance on Digital Ocean to migrate my friends over from Facebook in the hopes that I can then delete Facebook. I’m using the instructions here: https://github.com/discourse/discourse/blob/master/docs/INSTALL-cloud.md

My only concerns are that it’s a long term maintenance issue, and I’ll have to support and update it somehow. Does this just look like a git pull and rerunning the initial setup script, ./discourse-setup?

If there are resources on this, I’d appreciate it :slight_smile:

It looks like this section is the one should read: https://github.com/discourse/discourse/blob/master/docs/INSTALL-cloud.md#post-install-maintenance

It has stuff like this in it: “to upgrade Discourse to the latest version…”
