I am getting an error while trying to complete the Digitalocean Discourse 1-click install.
Checking your domain name . . .
WARNING: Port 443 of computer does not appear to be accessible using hostname: discourse.openfarming.net.
WARNING: Connection to http://discourse.openfarming.net (port 80) also fails.
The droplet’s IP address is 22.214.171.124. The nameserver for openfarming.net is TMDhosting, and using the cpanel there I have the following zone records for the domain:
NAME TTL CLASS TYPE RECORD
discourse.openfarming.net 600 IN A 126.96.36.199
www.discourse.openfarming.net 600 IN A 188.8.131.52
I have posted similarly to the Digitalocean community support forum. If it gets solved there, I will post the answer here for the potential benefit of others who may find themselves in the same situation in the future. Otherwise, I will kill the droplet and have another go with the method you outline here. Thank you again for that.
Thanks again @fzngagan. With no responders to my plea for help over on the Digitalocean support community, I killed my first droplet and started again following the instructions you shared with me here. Worked first time. Cheers!
