Discourse help on digitalocean

So When I am trying to setup discourse after the setup it says login to admin account and the domain refuses to connect I have the dns set up

Thanks If I can get any help


  • Did you created the DNS record pointing to the IP address of the droplet? (just confirming)
  • Are you able to solve the DNS record to the IP address?
  • Are you able to ping the Droplet?
  • Does the droplet has any kind of firewall?

yes
Are you able to solve the DNS record to the IP address?
yes
Yes I am able to ping the Droplet

not sure

Are you using the recommended install for Discourse or the One-click App?

If you didn’t setup any Firewall mostly sure you’re not using one.

Yes I did

Could you run docker ps and netstat -tlpn to see if Discourse is running and you have something in LISTEN in port 80?

You should see something like:

root@example:~# docker ps

Be sure to use the cloud install guide here: discourse/INSTALL.md at master · discourse/discourse · GitHub

The one-click install is not supported by our team.
