I have a feeling you are just not waiting long enough… I don’t see anything described as a problem there.


Nothing has been going on for an hour

Where are you installing? Is this a production machine?

It’s probably unrelated, but it’s generally better to stick to the LTS versions for a server.

Deployed with the installation, but after it localhost:

# Welcome to nginx!

If you see this page, the nginx web server is successfully installed and working. Further configuration is required.

*Thank you for using nginx.*

Probably you installed external Nginx, that uses port 80 and blocks Discourse internal Nginx during deployment. What guide do you use to install?


DigitalOcean tutorial

You will need to either stop the host version of nginx or uninstall nginx from the host server. That way docker establishes the connection.

If you need a proxy (host to use nginx), there is a tutorial for that too in #howto
