When running ./discourse-setup it continues to fail with the error:
cd /pups && git pull && /pups/bin/pups --stdin
fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/discourse/pups.git/': Could not resolve host: github.com
** FAILED TO BOOTSTRAP **
I have tried like at least 3 different solutions to this problem that I could find from this forum and around GitHub, including some Docker stack overflow answers for “lack of internet” and “DNS problems” within docker.
I have tried following like at least 2 different tutorials I could find for setting the Discourse forum software up, the official one and some other one.
Things like setting up a daemon.json file with DNS’ configured. Setting the docker0 interface into promiscuous mode.
After all that I still get the same problem.
I am using an Ubuntu 20.04 server hosted by OVH.
I am able to ping github.com and get a response on the host, just not within the Docker setup.
Anyone able to help?
Edit: after hacking together a manual entry in the/etc/hosts file of the container environment for github’s IP address, it now says “connection timed out” instead of “unable to resolve github.com”.
I think the first time I ran /discourse-setup it installed Docker for me.
And after hacking together a manual entry in the/etc/hosts file of the container environment for github’s IP address, it now says “connection timed out” instead of “unable to resolve github.com”.
So it seems like it might be an internet connection problem in general and not just a DNS thing. I even tried running it with the --network host option and it still didn’t work even though it does work on my host.
If I run a simple test Docker container, I am able to reach the internet from it. It just seems like the Discourse container is not connecting out.
