@phenomlab This is really disappointing. I think I’m jumping off the train of self-hosting with cloudron. Not having control over this is really askng for trouble.
Because self-hosting is done by people who don’t have a sysadmin on call, and they don’t want to deal with these things (hence cloudron!), dropping a broken version on an app on the user’s lap is a guaranteed pain in the neck for the self-hoster. Imagine this was a live, active forum. Going back to previous version would lose some posts. And the users would be pissed if they lost a big post.
Yes you can be very systematic with backups. Yes you may be on top of things and act fast. Yes you can read the forums for the apps you self-host. But then you have an extra job, one you don’t want to have. If you just want to run a community, dicking around with versions and configs is not a good use of your time. This is how we got to the situation we are in: everyone is hostage of apps, bigTech, and ‘convenience’. Because the alternative is just freaking terrible. And I thought cloudron would solve this… they are not made of magic I guess. You still have to babysit your sites, read updates on forums for your apps, etc. Not worth it, sorry.
