So… i’ve been at this for around 6 hours and thought to finally reach out for a bit of help.
I’ve setup discourse on a server, launched the container and attempted to sign up my 1st admin account.
The issue: I’m not getting the signup email.
What I have done:
- Made sure SMTP is configured correctly in the settings, and used an online test tool SMTP Test Tool to confirm those settings work, and it does. (using that website)
DISCOURSE_SMTP_ADDRESS: MY_SMTP_HOST DISCOURSE_SMTP_PORT: 587 DISCOURSE_SMTP_USER_NAME: MY_SMTP_USERNAME DISCOURSE_SMTP_PASSWORD: MY_SMTP_PASSWORD DISCOURSE_SMTP_ENABLE_START_TLS: true # (optional, default true)
Ensured that only one email is setup for initial configuration of admin accounts
checked that SSL is infact working (it is!)
tried a fresh reinstall twice of ubuntu and to follow the guide posted online for setup.
checked that there are no network firewalls that are blocking anything outgoing / incoming.
I was able to successfully telnet to my smtp server from the server hosting discourse.
have the aditional
- exec: rails r "SiteSetting.notification_email='noreply@MY_WEB_SITE'"
setup correctly at the end of the app.yml
I don’t know what else to try at this point, Thank you.
