Well, I’m a bit lost (and reply precisely to your question at the end of the message)
I followed this #howto:
- The CNAME , which is the “friendly” name for your CDN that you’ll set up in your DNS, e.g.
- The CDN URL , which is the “unfriendly” name for where the cached CDN assets will be coming from via the CDN’s worldwide network of distributed servers. It will look like
Stackpath told me to add this in my DNS (the screenshot is from my stackpath configuration steps):
The CNAME entry being www, I assumed that the “friendly” name for my CDN would be www.unicyclist.com.
Then, still following the #howto where the “friendly” name is added to the app.yml:
Uncomment the CDN line in your
app.yml and update it with the CNAME you just set up in your DNS:
## the origin pull CDN address for this Discourse instance
I did the same and I set DISCOURSE_CDN_URL to www.uncyclist.com
So I don’t quite understand why I should set the “unfriendly” name in my app.yml when the #howto tell me the opposite.
As for the IP and domains:
My VPS IP is
The A entry that I added following stackpath’s configuration steps is their own IP (as I understand it).
My app.yml hostname is
Oh, I’ll have a look at this!
Yup: that was that. Thanks guys!
