how to fix it ? im using digitalocean one click app
It’s probably because of Cloudflare incompatibility with the installer. Maybe try disable Cloudflare proxying (orange cloud) for your A records temporarily while installing or just manually edit the app.yml and rebuild (that’s what I do).
how to edit app.yml ?
cd /var/discourse nano containers/app.yml
Don’t forget to add this in the templates section at the top of your app.yml:
Add the necessary info, like hostname and smtp credentials.
Save and exit, then run:
./launcher rebuild app
Yeah that looks good, if you try the installer now with that disabled hopefully it will work. If it succeeds, you will still want to add the cloudflare template to the app.yml and rebuild.
You have to scroll further down the file to see those fields. Did the installer fail even with Cloudflare proxying disabled?
I recommend AWS SES, it’s the most cost effective top tier service I know of. It’s not free though, but it’s cheap and usage based with no minimums.
Not sure for using a free Gmail, I haven’t tried. You might want to search around the forums for that.
aws ses starting price free for 12 months
I think that is only for if you are hosting Discourse with them on an EC2 instance unless I’m mistaken.
okay i’ll try sendgrid
Mail gun is a great SMTP provider, you just need to verify with a credit/ debit card, but it won’t charge you anything.
