Problem setup on AWS: EC2, RDS, ElastiCache

unsupported-install

(cean) #1

Hi,

I have been following this guide to install Discourse on whole AWS services.

EC2 for Instance, RDS for Database, ElastiCache for Redis, Cloudfront for CDN and finally SES for Emails.

No problem for Cloudfront and SES.

However, I am having issues at build. Here’s logs when I do ./launcher rebuild app or ./launcher bootstrap app

AWS is all set. Neither I think it’s AWS side. Please help :slight_smile:


(cean) #2

Fixed on my own.

I thought I had no mistakes from AWS side however my Redis was not configured correctly and I had also used configure endpoint in app.yml. Damn, how did I miss that, it should’ve been primary endpoint :smiley:

I have also added two more lines to app.yml and maybe they were also part of this trick.
