Occasionally my forum website loads correctly with a welcome screen and a login/ signup request, and sometimes it comes up with a blank screen with “Index of /” and a table (which only contains a cgi-bin column with the date modified).
Process on what i followed:
- Installed Discourse on Digital Ocean, made a few tweaks to receive my first email for admin registration by following this thread::
Troubleshooting email on a new Discourse install
- Created an A record in my CPanel in my hosting domain (provider – InterServer) for the forum sub domain.
- Created a SPF file with the help of the hosting domain provider.
A newbie in Linux but can manage to follow after some understanding.
