Yesterday a lot of things were not working correctly, thankfully the developers were lurking in IRC and advised us that many of our issues were being corrected and that the Git was being updated.
The fixes have worked brilliantly and as of this morning I seem to be able to send and receive requests without a problem 🙂
To update your Diaspora installation you need to do the following from a shell prompt
CTRL+C or Killall Ruby
Use CTRL+C if you’ve not demonized your process or Killall Ruby if you have.
service mongod stop
This stops your database. You now need to get into the root directory of Diaspora, so on my server I’d CD to the following
Now we can update our Git files.
With that done you can start your database.
service mongod start
Now in the same root directory we can re-bundle our install
After that we must Rake
If you want to start with a fresh database then issue the following command, you will loose all current users and data
bundle exec db:purge
With our code updated we can start Diaspora once again
bundle exec thin start
bundle exec thin start -d
