Hello @coffeecraftcode and @benjaminb , I would like to give you some more info about, "what were nforem and oforem".

You will come across this if you are using the t2d script to install Forem in dokku.

The term nforem signifies the new/latest deployment => where as the oforem represents old/backuped(successfully previously installed Forem)

Why I even introduced such a thing.

It is just a backup solution, in case of failed stages during the new deployment. And to make sure that the Forem instance can also rollback one previous instance.

The oforem will not cost you extra RAM, but some space in your drive.

If you need more info, on how I intent to use this in the future deployments/ iterartions fo t2d script, ping me back! => This feature is very crutial for making the script more flexible.

@akhil you have probably linked this somewhere on forem.dev already but could you send me a link to your YouTube video? I'd love to learn more about your set up of Forem.

This post conatins all the neccessary information => Including the video and the Post Installation Steps.

This is my first ever video tutorial and it doesn't have any audio. I might come up with few audio included tutorials.

Hey Benjamin. Welcome to forem.dev and congrats on starting to set up your Forem.
I see you have a couple of questions regarding self-host. Can you confirm for me which self-host path you have taken so I can see if I can help you out here.
Did you use the Forem self-host repo and guide? Or are you setting up your Forem instances a different way?

If it isn't the Forem self-host repo and guide the team here at Forem are probably not going to be much help but we can try to help you get answers from others in the community who have taken a different path as well!

Thanks for the context @benjaminb !
There are some questions we might not be able to answer since Akhil's development is different from the official forem self-host guides. I think some of them have already been answered by our team which is great!

If you start finding you can't get answers to your questions while working on your Forem we can try to crowd source answers from the community here.

No but I can create one pretty soon. Right now I just have the written tutorials. It's been on my list of things to do anyway. I'll see about getting one up in the next week.
