Hello, I thought this installation would be very easy to do but is giving me a really hard day.
I have a domain in GoDaddy. Let’s say is this: www.example.com which is holding a WordPress page.
I’ve called to GoDaddy in order to create a subdomain (forum.example.com) where I wanted to install a Discourse forum.
They told me that I had to create inside my domain>DNS a new A record with the following fields:
Host: forum, Pointing to: My droplet ip (got it after installing Discourse through one-click apps), TTL: 1 hour.
After that, I connected to ssh console and run the setup.
I’ve filled all the fields with my information.
Now when I open the page it says my welcome page, and I put the admin email and says that a mail has been sent and that mail never arrives.
I repeated the installation 5 times with using different ports: 80, 3535, 25, 465, 2525 and anyone is working.
If I open Thunderbird or Outlook, and I put this same information using 465 port, the mail is working. I tried sending mail to my personal mail and worked, and from my personal to this email and I see the emails but not from the installation.
Additional question: If I’m using a GoDaddy subdomain which doesn’t have any nameserver configuration, I’m using the default GoDaddy nameserver. Is that okay?
PS: Why Digital Ocean is selling one-click 5 minutes installation when it’s a false information?
