#help

So, I want to host an instance of Forem and so far it's being a bit more complex than expected...
I've created a DigitalOcean and am following the forem/selfhost instructions

I'm a bit stuck here

Once DNS is pointed at your Forem VM, you will need to restart the Forem Traefik service (sudo systemctl restart forem-traefik.service) via SSH on your Forem server (github.com/forem/selfhost#ssh-exam...) to generate a TLS cert.

I don't get it: what password can I use to enter inside here:
ssh core@<SERVER IP ADDRESS>

Hey Yaroslav,

I'm really sorry for leaving you hanging here!

And, I should've been more clear. You can post this as an article under the #help tag and someone from the team will be happy to assist. Here's an article that explains how to post.

But in this instance, I'm going to loop in @coffeecraftcode to help out with your question here!

Hey @yshmarov I can help. Can you let me know what the last step you did was? I think you might be in the wrong part of the self-host docs but I want to make sure before giving advice.

Are you following the instructions here github.com/forem/selfhost#digitalo... ?

You can also check out the more in depth guide I put together on forem.dev here
