Discourse Setup on DigitalOcean

Okay so I am trying to setup my own Discourse forum on DigitalOcean using the one click system but when I get to which domain I should set it up on, I just keep getting the error of Port 443 of computer does not appear to be accessible.

I am using CloudFlare for my DNS and I have searched and tried everything and have kept getting the same error over and over again. Would someone please assist me?

It’s not blocking anything. So it should be allowing the traffic to DO.

The domain points to cloudflare ips. Which is signs that the ns servers are well configured.

But on cloudflare, you need to add an A record on the subdomain : forum(.rankerprobot.com), with the ip of the digitalocean droplet as a target.

I did do that and I am receiving the same error that I was getting before.

Proxy Status should be set to DNS only.
