Trying to change the default email for Discourse per instructions at https://docs.cloudron.io/apps/discourse/#changing-root-account-email. But when I enter the suggested command on the CLI:
sudo -E -u cloudron bundle exec script/rails console
sudo: unknown user: cloudron
sudo: unable to initialize policy plugin
sudo rails console
sudo: rails: command not found
It should go without saying that I don't really know what I'm doing. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
@scooke Ahh! Thanks.
Progress, but not success.
root@211e24ef-c9b0-45cb-891e-2edddc692bde:/app/code# sudo -E -u cloudron bundle exec script/rails console
/rootis not writable.
Bundler will use `/tmp/bundler20210702-197-1buhzyh197' as your home directory temporarily.
Loading production environment (Rails 126.96.36.199)
bundler: failed to load command: script/rails (script/rails)
Then a lot of traceback, ending in:
/usr/local/lib/ruby/2.7.0/irb/ext/save-history.rb:98:in `stat': Permission denied @ rb_file_s_stat - /root/.irb_history (Errno::EACCES)
What next? Thanks very much.
@qimmiq Did you run through the entire Discourse setup BEFORE trying to change the admin email stuff? I just installed Discourse, and before even logging in to the actual site I tried the same commands, and they failed too. So I went to the site, logged in, and discovered there is still more Setup steps. I'm doing those right now. One of them, https://discourse.example.com/wizard/steps/privacy, asked for an admin email address and whether users could sign up, and whether the app was public or private. I've chosen the most open options. I wonder if the failure we've seen happens because these Setup steps weren't done?
Well, having installed it, and then running through the Setup steps, and then trying
sudo -E -u cloudron bundle exec script/rails console, it failed too. But it seemed like a permission error, so I reran it with
sudo -E -u root bundle exec script/rails console- I changed
root, and now it ran.
sudo -E -u root bundle exec script/rails consolestarted, and I copied and pasted, line by line, the following, changing the
YOUR_NEW_EMAIL_ADDRESSto my new email address. Each of those lines below I copied into the prompt. That is, the space after the >. IN the gray box, each line that starts with
irb(main):001:0>is a prompt, and I pasted each portion of those lines into that prompt space. I hope that makes sense.
For me, the Help at https://docs.cloudron.io/apps/discourse/#changing-root-account-email didn't make it clear enough that you don't copy and paste the entire block, but it looks like that since they've made the entire gray block copy-able:
u = User.find_by_username("root") (This I pasted after the line
u.email = "email@example.com" (This was pasted after the line
irb(main):002:0>, you can see how the counter goes up 1 each time, and etc.)
exitat the final prompt. And it closed.
I refreshed the Discourse site and voila, the new email address is present and visible!
