I am setting up a Mattermost server for a 30 day trial on my droplet and a SiteURL is required for clients to connect to it. They give an example of: “https://mattermost.example.com” but no details of exactly what’s required. I was hoping to use the IP address.
I’m a retired unix/linux programmer but I don’t have much sys admin experience except on my own computers.
Can I just set up hostname or set the dnsdomainname to something? Do I need to run a web server? Do I need to purchase a unique domain name? I’m trying to find the easiest, most simple way to try this out.
