[Forgejo] SSH access lost after upgrade to 1.21.8-0~ynh1

A bug has been introduced in Forgejo package 1.21.8-0~ynh1. After upgrading to this version, you won’t be able to access your git repositories using SSH.

Upgrading from 1.21.8-0~ynh1 to 1.21.8-0~ynh2 (and further versions) won’t resolve the problem.

If you never installed the buggy version (i.e. upgrade from 1.21.7-0~ynh1 to 1.21.8-0~ynh2), you’re fine, don’t take care of this post.

In order to correct this issue, please type the following commands as root on your YunoHost server :

cd /var/www/forgejo
sudo -u forgejo ./forgejo admin regenerate keys

It will recreate the missing file /var/www/forgejo/.ssh/authorized_keys.

I’m sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello, and thank you for the warning!

If you want to make sure users see this information, you can also use the notifications system with a doc/POST_UPGRADE.md file: Adding documentation to your app | Yunohost Documentation

However, I may be wrong but it does not look like it would hurt to apply this command upon every upgrade, sparing users from needing to run it.
