re: Installing Forem on Ubuntu 18.04 (Part 1 - Ruby on Rails) VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Thank you for writing this guide. Were you able to deploy this software on a domain of yours individually? If yes, please share the URL. I have been trying to deploy the software but I always hit a snag despite following all the steps.

 

What seems to be the problem? I was able to host the software on a seperate server with no issue. I will be migrating from Ghost to Forem on my original website (hackhex.com) within few days. When it is ready, I will let you know.

In the meantime follow the exact steps in this guide and let me know if there's any problem. :)

 

Thank you :) Previously, I followed the docker instructions. I gave the official documentation a try again today and it worked like a charm. I didn't face any issues installing the development environment on an Ubuntu VM from AWS. Now looking to deploy it using NGINX. I feel I'll hit snags and I'll visit your tutorials to see how you deal with the live deployment of the web app.

 

I feel I'm near. I'm trying Passenger + NGINX for the production deployment. I've spent a couple of hours and here are my latest errors in NGINX logs:

The client either needs a valid 'client_id'/'client_secret' pair or an 'access_token'! (ArgumentError)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And I feel this error is caused by missing env values. I'll get all the needed API keys tomorrow and I'll try once more. I feel I'll be able to deploy it.

 

I spent a couple of hours and I feel I'm close. I am trying Passenger + NGINX and here is the latest error. I've fixed other errors related to the database and so on and now I feel I just need to provide all the needed credentials in env file:

The client either needs a valid 'client_id'/'client_secret' pair or an 'access_token'! (ArgumentError)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

I'll get all the needed API keys tomorrow and I'll give it a try. I feel I'll be able to deploy it in production mode tomorrow :) I'll keep you posted.

That's wonderful news! Keep me updated with your progress. :)
