I just tried a new install of discourse on digital ocean. I’m trying to use a subdomain and I believe lestencrypt is putting errors out.
[emerg] 5618#5618: PEM_read_bio_X509_AUX("/shared/ssl/ask.sysadminonlinux.org.cer") failed (SSL: error:0906D06C:PEM routines:PEM_read_bio:no start line:Expecting: TRUSTED CERTIFICATE)
$ dig +short ask.sysadminonlinux.org
Is your droplet 22.214.171.124?
If not, that’s the problem. If it is, then, well, maybe it’s something else.
yes, that is the correct IP.
/var/discourse/shared/standalone/ssl/ask.sysadminonlinux.org.cer file looks good?
