I’m having a bizarre issue setting up a new install. We’re moving from hosted to self-hosting our installation, and are using the domain www.pidforum.org. I have spun up an Ubuntu server, and am using the standard install. Domain is currently pointing at the IP of the server with @, *, and www. all set as A names.
installation appears to go without a hitch…everything looks like it’s working. Initial domain check says it’s ok, installation proceeds and completes. But it doesn’t work. Server isn’t listening on 443 or 80, and when i discourse doctor it says:
Discourse version at www.pidforum.org: NOT FOUND
Discourse version at localhost: NOT FOUND
Now here’s the weird thing…if i redo discourse-setup, and change ONLY the domain name to another domain i control (discourse.xxxxxxx.yyy) it works fine. Everything else is the same…same server, same everything, ONLY changing the domain name.
What could cause this? Help, I’m going insane trying to sort this out.
