Site loads on IP, but not on subdomain


I’ve setup bitnami discourse here, on GCP, and I have added an A record to point it to here,

Unfortunately the subdomain appears to just spin…but the IP address loads no problem. What am I doing wrong?



Here is my console log error…

You’ll need do a standard install or ask the Bitnami people for help. Discourse typically won’t work on an ip.


Okay, I understand. I was hoping given it was basically a standard looking install someone here might have a pointer on how to get this working. Looks like it’s the case of 99% done, but 100% have to start from scratch.

Thanks for the help.

If you somehow have data in the existing instance you should be able to make a backup and restore to the standard install.

No data, just a bare install.

As Jay has mentioned we can’t help with the bitnami install. That package exists to promote bitnami and has historically caused all kinds of headache.

Follow the standard install on a fresh VPS and see how you go.
