Hey @lyhuutri , this is a great way to ask your question! Thanks for sharing the screenshot and giving us plenty of info to work with.

Your error appears to be related to Step 4 of the Self-host step-by-step guide, where you need to

Edit inventory/forem/setup.yml Ansible Inventory with your Forem settings

  • Edit the following Ansible inventory variables:
    • default_email (Admin Email for system to use)
    • forem_domain_name (A domain name that you own and set A records on at your DNS provider)
    • forem_subdomain_name (defaults to www)
    • forem_server_hostname (defaults to host)

If you don't specify these fields before running ansible-playbook -i inventory/forem/setup.yml playbooks/providers/digitalocean.yml, the playbook won't have the information it needs to create your Forem instance.

We recommend returning to the Self-host step-by-step guide and reviewing the steps. Please let us know if you have any further questions, and we will continue to try to help!
