Hi there @mapal,

What you need to do after deploying the Discourse Droplet is to SSH to the Droplet and add the following details:

  • Email Address for the Discourse Admin Account
  • The hostname (domain or subdomain) you will use for Discourse
  • Details for the SMTP server your Discourse install will use to send email
  • Email Address to use if you wish to set up a LetsEncrypt SSL certificate

Once you’ve done that then you will be able to visit your domain name and see your Discourse installation.

If you have already done this, I would recommend checking if the Apache Docker container is running, you can do that by connecting to your server via SSH, and running this command:

  1. sudo docker ps -a

If it is not running, I would recommend trying to start it and checking the logs.

To try and start the container run:

  1. sudo docker start container_id_here

And then to check the logs run:

  1. sudo docker logs container_id_here

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
