Create admin user using this commands:

cd /var/discourse
./laucher enter app
rake admin:create

Debug smtp server under admin > mails.

Some problems have been found with your installation of Discourse:

  • There are 3 email jobs that failed. Check your app.yml and ensure that the mail server settings are correct
    How Do I check my app.yml?

Cause When I go through the file:

  • My SMTP Username: Is my Email
  • Port 2525
  • smtp.elasticemail.com
    -Password: Is the password for SMTP
    Tried also with mailgun, no one works.

Still I dont recieve my emails to inbox

Well when it ask for my discourse host name, could it be like example (theweirdperson.tk) or do it need to be forum.theweirdperson.tk?


(Bhanu Sharma) #7

it can be any valid FQDN as long as that FQDN resolves back to the server on which you’re hosting your forum.

FQDN? Sorry I am being a bit newbeginner.


(Bhanu Sharma) #9

FQDN = Fully Qualified Domain Name. :slight_smile:

Ok, so I have pointed my domain to the ip of the forum. (statekentucky.tk) so then I can put statekentucky.tk in hostname in the cmd?


(Bhanu Sharma) #11

Sorry I didn’t quite get you.
are you doing a fresh install or something else?
Your question was related to your VPS or elasticemail?

I am currently trying to reinstall the droplet and install discourse again, cause I have had some errors with few email servers.


(Bhanu Sharma) #13

Please follow the official install guide.

discourse/INSTALL-cloud.md at master · discourse/discourse · GitHub

and about the Hostname, if You want to host it on forum.example.com then enter forum.example.com when it asks for hostname and if you want it on example.com then enter example.com when it asks for hostname.

Dont this look right?


(Bhanu Sharma) #15

Looks good to me. You may try proceeding with installation and it should complete without error.


(Mitch) #16

(Bhanu Sharma) #17

Check the logs at elasticemail?


(Mitch) #18

(Mitch) #19

Oh, is it Email log and notification log?


(Bhanu Sharma) #20

Yes definitely that should do! … Do you see any submitted emails over there?
