Problem linking Discourse forum to WP Discourse

UPDATE: On a hunch I rolled back the updated Discourse back to 2.7.0.beta3 and both of my Wordpress sites are able to connect to Discourse so I’m guessing there’s something in the updated versions of Discourse after 2.7.0.beta3 that might be causing issues?

UPDATE 2: I believe the issue has to do with changing domain names - I was finally able to update Discourse to the latest version and Wordpress was able to hook into it. However, each time I change the domain over, it fails. I’ll have to dig into it some more - I bet it has to do with a stray domain setting somewhere despite following the directions here to the letter.

UPDATE 3: Dug into the logs, I see I exceeded the rate limit for Let’s Encrypt so I’ll have to try again next week : /

Let me know how I can help debug this.


P.S. I tried to change the domain and do a rebuild without updating Discourse per this but for some reason the rebuild updates to the latest version so I’m unable to debug this further.
