Hello friends, good day.
First I want to clarify that I do not speak or write English. I speak and write Spanish. That’s why I’m using the google translator. Know apologize.
My experience is with shared hosting, use of emails with Gmail, that is, I have no experience in the use of this type of systems.
My problem is that I can not install the system. It is impossible to send the activation email.
I detail the steps and actions that I have carried out:
1 - I contracted the Digital Ocean service with the Discourse application installed.
2 - Active domain.
3 - Mailgun configuration. Creating subdomains to handle email.
Now I will try to explain step by step what I did:
1 - I get a Doplet in digitalocean with Ubuntu and discourse pre installed.
2 - The domain is configured with their respective dns provided by digitalocean.
3 - In mailgun I made the creation of the domain and two subdomains. In the Discourse installation I only use a single subdomain.
4 - Mailgun configuration was done with the dns in digitalocean.
5 - Each subdomain and domain is correctly active, according to mailgun.
6 - According to the guide on github and the discourse installation:
* Hostname for your Discourse? [discourse.example.com]: * ---- At this point can you place the root domain? * Email address for admin account (s)? [me @ example.com, you @ example.com]: * ----- In this section I put my email address, in this case gmail.
SMTP server address? [smtp.example.com]:
SMTP port? :
SMTP user name? [firstname.lastname@example.org]:
SMTP password? [pa $$ word]:
Let’s Encrypt account email? (ENTER to skip) [email@example.com]:
------ In these steps go the data provided by mailgun.
This is the true one:
DISCOURSE_SMTP_ADDRESS: smtp.mailgun.org # required
DISCOURSE_SMTP_PORT: 587 # (optional, default 587)
DISCOURSE_SMTP_USER_NAME: firstname.lastname@example.org # required
DISCOURSE_SMTP_PASSWORD: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx # required, WARNING the char ‘#’ in pw can cause problems!
#DISCOURSE_SMTP_ENABLE_START_TLS: true # (optional, default true)
Below is a subdomain log, keep in mind that the attempts are from Outlook.
7 - Following this guide:
If I write this command
telnet smtp.mailgun.org 587
I get this result:
There’s something I’m doing wrong. Can you help me? Thank you so much!!!
