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.
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.
