Installing Discourse problems Digital Ocean


I’m installing Discourse with the minimum on Digital Ocean, this is mean 1G Ram / 25G space / One Click install.

Everything was fine until the moment I use SSH to enter my email, SMTP information,… each time I enter all the information, the steps repeat from the beginning, ask me to enter the information again, I did and repeat again, why ???

Knowing that I want to use Elasticemail as STMP provider.

Thanks for your help

I’ve had issues with the one-click installs in the past. Running the typical install instructions are a lot easier to me.

But if you don’t want to start over with your droplet, you can check out this help document on DO:


Just press crl+c and your off to go.


Thank you Joe, I will try as you say and get back to you to let you know if everything is fine

I did @artfors but without any success. I felt like Discourse didn’t accept the information
