Site splash screen shows on localhost, not on URL

I’m using Cloudflare and XAMPP to configure Discourse.

After setup I realized that my site,, does not show the Discourse congratulations screen. I checked localhost and there it was, not to be seen on the URL. Any way to fix this?

Hi @Nycrite
Discourse doesn’t need XAMPP to function. If you plan to use your server exclusively for discourse, it comes bundled with nginx inside it’s docker container. It should technically be all that you need to set up discourse.

Please refer this install guide: discourse/ at main · discourse/discourse · GitHub
