I made a backup of my forem's /opt/forem directory on
Digital Ocean and downloaded it to my desktop sometime in February. Fast-forward to yesterday, I created a new forem instance on
AWS and tried to restore the backup but it didn’t work.
Steps I Followed
I followed this tutorial when creating the backup and then download the tar.gz file from
Digital Oceanto my computer using
I also used the same
scpto upload the backup file to
After that, I override the /opt/forem folder with the backup files.
The /opt/forem folder now contains all the backup files but the changes didn’t reflect on the frontend.
Please is there anything I can do to restore my old site?
Note: The forem version on
AWSis the same as
Digital Ocean. I have not updated it to the latest Forem.

Have you restarted your Forem containers after all the processes have been done? If you move all the files including the PostgreSQL data and envs, you need to restart your Forem to activate new .env files.
You can use this command to restart all stacks of Forem:
sudo foremctl restart
Alright, tnx alot.
