Can't connect - new installation on DO

If ./discourse-setup went well, then it means that it have been able to resolve your domain, so there’s nothing to do about that. The propagation has already been done for your server at this point.

Note that the 1-click Digital Ocean Discourse install is an unsupported-install, which mean you’re less likely to find support here. :slight_smile:

I’d suggest starting from scratch and use the standard install.

  1. Create a droplet

  2. Log in via SSH

  3. Run ping and see if it resolves to your server’s IP (./discourse-setup will show a warning if it doesn’t anyway).

    • If it doesn’t, wait until it does.
  4. When it does, install Discourse using the official guide discourse/ at main · discourse/discourse · GitHub

Please report back :slight_smile:

Of course, I’m not an expert, and maybe someone will be able to pinpoint your current issue.
