Hi @masrinfo,

Firstly, I would recommend following this tutorial to Install Discourse -

The tutorial is for Ubuntu 16.04 however it can be applied on 18.04 as well.

If you can’t SSH to your Droplet, I’ll recommend using your droplet console from your control area and allowing your IP on the firewall.

If you are using just iptables, you can do the following:


where XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX is your IP address.

Discourse is an open-source discussion platform. It can be used as a mailing list, a discussion forum, or a long-form chat room. In this tutorial, we'll install Discourse in an isolated environment using Docker, a containerization application.
