Protect your DigitalOcean Discourse Droplet from data loss with bullet proof
There are many reasons why you will be thankful you backed up your Discourse
community. Even for small issues, it's a
relief when you
can just restore a snapshot and get back to business.
Discourse has a backup feature
but unless you go though the trouble of configuring S3 storage your backups are just stored on
local disk. This is not ideal or reliable if your entire server is compromised! DigitalOcean
can save the day by having a backup created
outside of the droplet (but still within DigitalOcean)
Snapshots are a fast and easy way to recover a droplet to a previous state.
They remove the requirement for disaster recovery planning, where you would typically need
to ensure your server recovery processes reliably restore data and functionality.
Install Discourse on DigitalOcean.
The process can be be simplified by using Digital
install and deploy system.
After your Discourse droplet is setup is a perfect time to login to SnapShooter and
activate backups on your Droplet.
