Hi discourse community,
I am new to discourse and just testing the setup of discourse on an AWS ec2 instance following discourse/INSTALL-cloud.md at master · discourse/discourse · GitHub. However, I wasn’t able to spin it up. Here is problem I am having:
Before purchasing all the resources, I wanted to try out the website without a domain name, so I used Public IPv4 DNS of that instance as the hostname of discourse and to access the site, e.g. https://ec2_ip_address.us-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com/.
I opened up the port 80, 443 on the instance via the security group, and verified these ports are accessible from public network (tested with python simple server).
But I get “This site can’t be reached” in browser after starting the discourse server with
./launcher rebuild app.
I tried the discourse doctor, and it returns
Discourse version at ec2-ip_address.us-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com: NOT FOUND Discourse version at localhost NOT FOUND
I am not 100% sure if email setup is working, but I assume site accessibility is a separate problem with email.
Can anyone point me what is missing or how can I debug this issue?
thanks a lot!
