I’ve purchased a VPS from digital ocean and used there one click install for discourse droplet.
After entering the domain name etc. and doing the standard set up. Every time I go to my vps ip address (discourse has been installed on the main domain which I’ve pointed to the vps ip). Every time I go to the vps ip. It keeps saying:
This site can’t be reached
(MY-VPS-IP) refused to connect.
Checking the connection
[Checking the proxy and the firewall]
I’ve opened the http and https ports as well and thats showing as open when I run the sudo ufw status command.
I’ve tried clearing my cache in case its a browser local issue; but still no luck.
Any suggestions/help? If anyone has any ideas or needs additional information; feel free to post below.
It sounds like you’ve hit the let’s encrypt rate limits. It’s hard to figure out how not to use let’s encrypt, so you’re probably still requesting the certificate (but now if the certificate is going to expire, you won’t get a warning via email). If I’m right, then you can
wait until next week (easy unless you’re impatient)
use a different domain name (easy, unless you really love your name or are bad at DNS)
