You did a standard install? Did you look at Troubleshooting email on a new Discourse install?


I did standard install. I am not sure about email setup cause sendinblue give my personal email adress as smtp username. Now i trying with MailGun.


Now ot refusing connecting after clicked “Register”. No problem in email setup.

I got this error message end of rebuild:
Also i am using ARM64.

Pups::ExecError: /bin/bash -c "if [[ ! \"$LETSENCRYPT_ACCOUNT_EMAIL\" =~ ([^@]+)@([^\.]+) ]]; then echo \"LETSENCRYPT_ACCOUNT_EMAIL is not a valid email address\"; exit 1; fi" failed with return #<Process::Status: pid 1036 exit 1>

Not sure what it might be. It might actually have to do with LETSENCRYPT_ACCOUNT_EMAIL, but it might not.


I running ./discourse-doctor now.

Ok, i solved problem now.

Can you share what the problem and solution was for others to see?
I noticed in your OP that your password was too short. A minimum of 15 characters is required for an Admin account.


Probably i didnt saw “password too short” text. That must be in a red box but i used Discourse doctor and changed my SMTP provider to the mailgun.
