Has anybody got Discourse, Mail in a box and SSL all working on one Ubuntu 16.04.3 Installation?

Security Email Applications Ubuntu 16.04

I have installed Ubuntu 16.04
I manaully installed Discourse.
I have it live, so can access the site via my domain name

I installed Mail in a Box, it completed the install but when i try access https://mydomain/admin as per the instructions it gives me an error connection refused

I also cannot get SSL installed correctly.

If anyone can point me in the right direction this would be greatly appreciated

Mail-in-a-Box requires a fresh machine – do not install Mail-in-a-Box on a server that already has other software such as Discourse installed on it:


I’d recommend using separate droplets for Discourse and Mail-in-a-Box.
