Automatic activation for users


(Bayo) #1

Hello everyone. I installed discourse on Azure using Bitnami.
I know this is not the supported way but I would be glad for some help.
I integrated the email and the test email works fine. But when a user signs up, activation email is not sent.
Other emails works just fine.
I have tried every method but to no avail.
Now I want my users to get activated on signup without the activation email.

Is there a way I can do that?

To troubleshoot the email problems you can try following steps here:

These steps are obviously targeted at the standard install, but they might help.

What mail provider are you using?

The fact that is unsupported, means that we can’t really help you, because the install can be broken in many ways that we no control whatsoever.

To do a supported install you can follow the official guide.

Thanks for the reply @Falco . I would just like to know how to stop activation emails from being sent. I figured that wont be difficult, but I have been searching through the settings to find out how but cant seem to figure it out.

Discourse won’t work without confirming emails. A way around activation emails, though is to use social logins like Google, facebook and so on. Search

Dear, You should stop bitnami stack as soon as possible. I tried my level best with bitnami stack for discourse. It kept on crashing, it took me infinite hours to debug a little bug on the pure discourse code.

As @Falco said. You should try to install the supported install as mentioned in the dicourse github profile. It takes only a few minutes to get it up and running.

Btw, make sure you get KVM VPS(Digitial Ocran, Linode etc), if you are planning to move to the supported install.
