I’ve got a Discourse server running at home for testing purposes (it looks awesome, btw) but I’m confused about how to configure the FQDN and email settings. I had to gain access to an administrative account through the command line, so that’s done, but I still need to get email working.
Here’s the situation:
Discourse server is on my home LAN.
The hostname = myhomeserver
I have a email account configured with my webhost for the server to access in order to send out confirmation emails. This email account is tested and working, so I know the problem is not with the account or my webhosting company. Let’s call this account "email@example.com"
I have a FQDN via Dynamic DNS that I can use to make the Discourse server reachable from the WAN. Let’s call it “myFQDN.com”
It seems like the FQDN and email address would cause problems because they’re not on the same domain.
I apologize if this is super easy, but I’m not getting it. Thanks.
