SMTP Settings on Azure VM


(Chris Stephens) #1

Hi,

I’m very new to both Discourse and to Azure VMs. I have a VM set up and I have Discourse running on it fine. I am currently the only user on the system and I am having trouble finding out where to add any SMTP settings so that Discourse can send emails (thus enabling me to invite a couple of other test users to the board).

The only similar topics I can find seem to suggest editing a particular file and then issuing a command line command to restart the server. I can’t get either at the file or at any sort of command line interface in my Azure VM, so I can’t follow the recommended solution.

I am fully prepared to believe that this is all totally possible on an Azure VM and that I am jusat missing something as to how it is done.

Any help would be very gratefully received.

Thanks,

Chris

How did you install Discourse? Did you follow the official guide? That one needs using a terminal and accessing your server with SSO, the same way you change SMTP settings.

I just clicked a link at thge Azure portal and it did it for me.

Ah, I’ve found out how to get command line access. Should be straight forward now.

Which link was that? Could you take a screenshot of it? If it was this link:

https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/marketplace/partners/bitnami/discourse/

…then you’re running on a Bitnami install, which we don’t officially support because they’re (currently) forking Discourse in order to install it.
