DigitalOcean: Port 443 of computer does not appear to be accessible

Hi,

I saw there are many posts on the same issue, but they were not helpful.

I have installed Discourse using DigitalOcean’s Marketplace.
I’m having this error

Checking your domain name . . .
WARNING: Port 443 of computer does not appear to be accessible using hostname

Within from droplet I was able to confirm

# ufw status
Status: active

I have a record in DNS settings and able to ping the domain name.
I added the record in DNS almost at the same timing I was creating a droplet.
I understand it usually may take up to 24 hours, but it seems the domain is being resolved.

Likely a dns lag. Try again now.

Thanks!
Indeed, it took time for DNS to propagate.
I worked now.
