I am trying to set up Discourse docker on my existing server. I am not running any other docker containers.
My server runs Apache (WordPress websites) and some other web services.
I can’t figure out how to route my subdomain ‘forum.rebelscience.club’ to my docker container.
When I am asked this:
Hostname for your Discourse? [discourse.example.com]: forum.rebelscience.club
This is what I see:
Checking your domain name . . . WARNING: Port 443 of computer does not appear to be accessible using hostname: forum.rebelscience.club. WARNING: Connection to http://forum.rebelscience.club (port 80) also fails. This suggests that forum.rebelscience.club resolves to some IP address that does not reach this machine where you are installing discourse. The first thing to do is confirm that forum.rebelscience.club resolves to the IP address of this server. You usually do this at the same place you purchased the domain. If you are sure that the IP address resolves correctly, it could be a firewall issue. A web search for "open ports YOUR CLOUD SERVICE" might help. This tool is designed only for the most standard installations. If you cannot resolve the issue above, you will need to edit containers/app.yml yourself and then type ./launcher rebuild app
I am not sure how to set this up. Ports 80/443 are available, but they are pointed to my main domain, not my subdomain.
Any tips are highly appreciated.
