No information requested on install

I’ve looked for this issue but not been able to find it. On install it doesn’t ask any questions at all, it just tries to install to all the default information.

When I type in the sudo ./discourse-setup

I get this:

This suggests that resolves to some IP address that does not reach this 
machine where you are installing discourse.

The first thing to do is confirm that resolves to the IP address of this server.
You usually do this at the same place you purchased the domain.

If you are sure that the IP address resolves correctly, it could be a firewall issue.
A web search for "open ports YOUR CLOUD SERVICE" might help.

This tool is designed only for the most standard installations. If you cannot resolve
the issue above, you will need to edit containers/app.yml yourself and then type

./launcher rebuild app

It never asks me to enter my domain name or any other information.

Try this:

sudo su
rm containers/app.yml

I can’t quite see how that could happen, especially if you deleted an existing app.yml. Maybe you’re hitting return before it asks for the hostname?

Is there anything else in containers/? Maybe a web_only.yml?

There’s a file called .gitkeep but when you open it, it’s blank.

I can’t make sense of how this could happen, especially if you’re the only person it’s happening to.

You’re following Discourse official Standard Installation, right?

And there are no yml files in /var/discourse/containers and your still get

I’ll try to do a clean install today, but I’ll pretty slammed.

No, but it did the same thing - just ran on trying to do the install without asking me any questions at all.

I just ran it on my desktop. I can’t replicate. Here’s what I see:
