Discourse has stopped opening


(Tarlan Isaev) #10

Unfortunately, it gives nothing.

root@discourse:~# ./launcher logs app
-su: ./launcher: No such file or directory

root@discourse:/# cd /shared/log/var-log/nginx
-su: cd: /shared/log/var-log/nginx: No such file or directory

Yeah, this is the problem. (“Emerg” = Emergency)

I went through this tutorial How To Install Discourse Behind Nginx on Ubuntu 14.04 | DigitalOcean to recreate SSL Certificate on Nginx for Ubuntu 14.04 and got a message.

root@discourse:/opt/letsencrypt# ./letsencrypt-auto certonly --standalone --email tamerlanium@gmail.com --agree-tos -d specknz.me

The program exe (process ID 1304) is already listening on TCP port   │
   │ 443. This will prevent us from binding to that port. Please stop the │
   │ exe program temporarily and then try again.

At least one of the (possibly) required ports is already taken.

And didn’t get a response similar to this:

Let’s Encrypt Output
IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • If you lose your account credentials, you can recover through
    e-mails sent to sammy@example.com.
  • Congratulations! Your certificate and chain have been saved at
    /etc/letsencrypt/live/discourse.example.com/fullchain.pem. Your
    cert will expire on 2016-04-26. To obtain a new version of the
    certificate in the future, simply run Let’s Encrypt again.
  • Your account credentials have been saved in your Let’s Encrypt
    configuration directory at /etc/letsencrypt. You should make a
    secure backup of this folder now. This configuration directory will
    also contain certificates and private keys obtained by Let’s
    Encrypt so making regular backups of this folder is ideal.

(Alan Tan) #13

Hmm how was your Discourse instance setup? Are you on the docker based install?


(Tarlan Isaev) #14

Yeah, it have been installed through the Docker instance.


(Alan Tan) #15

Try following

to install a Let’s Encrypt cert instead


(Tarlan Isaev) #16

Sorry Guo, should I rebuild the Discourse container?

4. Rebuild your container

./launcher rebuild <container name>


(Sam Saffron) #17

Yes

Can you please try rebuilding?

Please SSH into your server and run:

cd /var/discourse
git pull
./launcher rebuild app

(Sam Saffron) #21

See:

run ./launcher rebuild app


(Tarlan Isaev) #22

Ups I missed it :slight_smile:
I’ve resized the Droplet to 1Gb by the using SWAP and tried to rebuild it, but it didn’t help me. However, yesterday I rebuild it successfully.

LETSENCRYPT_ACCOUNT_EMAIL ENV variable is required and has not been set.

hmmm… is that set?


(Tarlan Isaev) #24

Yep, I’ve put some дштуы to the app.yml file then rebuilded the application.

You still have it commented out. You need to remove the # in front of LETSENCRYPT_ACCOUNT_EMAIL

You’ll have to paste more of your app.yml, be sure to remove any sensitive information, such as, passwords and email addresses (that you don’t what publicized).

Seems the rebuild was successful though…

(cpradio) #29

Wait… now you have LETSENCRPYT_ACCOUNT_EMAIL in there twice. You only need it once (your prior subset didn’t indicate that it was there twice).

I’m not seeing anything obvious however. Do you have apache/nginx sitting in front of Discourse and hosting other sites on the same box, or does this box only run Discourse via Docker?


(Tarlan Isaev) #30

Yep, I initialised Nginx to handle two websites, then decided to don’t use this approach for the $5 Droplet.


(cpradio) #31

Any chance you still have parts of nginx configured and it is intefering with serving Discourse?


(Tarlan Isaev) #32

The settings should be sitting there. How could I switch it off or maybe uninstalling can help in this case, but I’m not sure that it could be help to clean the settings.
