Hey people, I am extremely new to node.js, NodeBB & dokku but I've been trying to set up a nodeBB forum on my dokku droplet and although I have set up redis to work with the app when I run --setup it fails to connect to it, anyone else using a setup like this and any pointers for getting it working. The error I get is this; error: Redis connection to [IP ADDRESS] failed - connect ECONNREFUSED I have redis setup and dokku has linked the container to my forum container, I pass the correct IP & port during setup but the connection fails, I'm at a bit of a loss.

Check Redis' error logs and see if it logged why the authentication failed.
