Discourse forum sometimes loads with "Index of /" sometimes correctly with its signup/ login page


(Vishal Vr) #1

Hi all,

Problem:
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:

  1. 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
  2. Created an A record in my CPanel in my hosting domain (provider – InterServer) for the forum sub domain.
  3. Created a SPF file with the help of the hosting domain provider.

Background:
A newbie in Linux but can manage to follow after some understanding.

You have another A record that points to another web server.
