I need to install Discourse in Ubuntu by using Docker

I have installed Discourse in Ubuntu by using Docker . I am unable to get the activation email . Will you provide any guidance. And I’m getting logs like below:

Just came across this question, I could suggest a couple of things:

  • As you are using port 587 I believe that you should set the TLS to true
  • Make sure that you are running the latest Docker engine version
  • Make sure that the Discourse image that you are using is also the latest one.

Best, Bobby
