After initial setup of DigitalOcean droplet, get Refused to Connect error


#1

I have followed the tutorial found below to set up discourse on a DigitalOcean Droplet.
discourse/INSTALL-cloud.md at master · discourse/discourse · GitHub

But when I go the the corresponding IP address, I get
""“This site can’t be reached
192.241.***.*** refused to connect.”""

I have tried all of the steps suggested in the forum here:

What are the possible reasons for a refused to connect error? Could this be related to SSL certificates?

Thanks!

Those instructions don’t include SSL setup so unless you have done something extra - probably not an SSL issue.

The most common setup to complete is for a “domain name” not an IP address…
… I would suggest starting again following the instructions and using a domain name from a domain you control / own.
