Hello everyone, I would appreciate your help. Some time back I sent a request and notice to Forem team as regard setting up the Forem script on Digital ocean (Production) for an African online community we are building and also to see how it (Forem) works but stuck now.

Installation worked fine but setting up Admin account is the issue, the page is asking for "New Forem Secret" and don't know anywhere to find it.

Please help and thank you.

Hi @gurulhc ! I believe you'll need to set your ENV variable FOREM_OWNER_SECRET to something. We recommend setting the key to a randomly generated string, for example through rails console:

SecureRandom.base64(64)
#=> "some_64_character_string"
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
Forem Open with the Forem app
