I finished installing the discource on digital ocean.
And it It’s installed
But how do I login?
You should have received an email.
My real email?
or my SMTP email.
You should have got a prompt to set an email for the account while installing right?
No, I did not.
I did not get the email, and I check it again.
Then its a problem with your smtp config.
Ok, but how do I get the file then?
should start the setup again
I started the setup, so what should I put in SMTP server address?
The website that I am using?
Also, can you give me an example for what should I put?
No you need to specify SMTP account you have created for which ever mail provider you have selected.
Email is CRITICAL for account creation and notifications in Discourse. If you do not properly configure email before bootstrapping YOU WILL HAVE A BROKEN SITE!

Does your inbound mail have SPAM filters? Be sure to check the junk mail box.
(Have to include the basics.)
How do I get lets encrypt?
If you have a valid DNS entry and your server is accessible across the internet without any proxy server it should be configured automatically.
I can’t even find my email from the discourse that was sent to me.
I am using SendGrid by the way.
