System logs - what we're up to


#1

Generic topic here that’ll attempt to keep people informed on what is being ran/fixed/broke at any point.

Disclaimer - might not remember to post every time a setting is changed that will affect the display or availability, but will try.

Currently Active
Running a task to rebake the posts, should have an effect on loading the original smiley icons back into old posts and may refresh a number of the user avatars that appear next to a thread for all users who have posted.

#2

altered the Docker instance timezone - Google 2 factor authentication active and working


#3

Some old posts may appear in the “latest” feeds.

This is because we are spotting some links that have been injected into old posts and they are being removed.


#4

A bit of a known issue caused some post creation errors.

Server setup is Plesk with a Docker instance running Discourse. There is a Docker control plugin and it does put into the standard Plesk nginx config some default rules. But it doesn’t handle the pass-through of ssl from nginx (plesk) to nginc docker.

By editing the file in the plesk configs, /etc/nginx/plesk.conf.d/vhosts adding the directive proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https; forces all content to be ssl.

Otherwise the scripts for posting attempt to load over http, and browsers will block that due to mixed content.
