Configuring Ghost.

  • Posted November 11, 2013

I’m way in over my head with this, but I am trying to get a ghost install working.

I’ve followed the instructions to get the URL to point at it,, which worked for a while (at least to a sign in page). But while trying to sort out what the problem was there (never having had an admin form to fill in), it is now passing a 502 error.

Where should I be looking to solve this?

i try to set up the mail using gmail and i cannot make it work

It may be due to the way your DNS is set-up by DO. I had the same issue and the mailgun people had this to say: <br> <br>“Hey Christopher, <br> <br>Looking at the screenshot I believe the issue is that your DNS provider already appends your domain name to the hostname values you are entering. If you change the hostname for the SPF record to an @ symbol and change the hostname for the DKIM record to pic._domainkey they should validate.”

I just tried navigating to <code></code> and it worked for me.

The guys at mailgun have corrected an error in their configuration with DigitalOcean – but now my browser can’t find the server. <br> <br>Any suggestions?
