getting email working & Using Mailjet for Email Questions.

Technical Support
  • #1

    I have managed to get a Nodebb up and running on my Ubuntu VPS with

    From an admin point it is working with changes been saved to the db etc.

    I can log in and out.

    What I can't seem to get going is Email. I have installed the Mailjet plugin and have this populated with the api and key. Still it seems I cannot send or am not receiving any emails.

    What are the steps to sorting? Where do I begin to look for the evidence?

    This is incredibly frustrating for a non-techy.... Does any normal internet user actually use this programme...?

    I managed to get email working, then after logging out could not LOG BACK IN...

    Now I have managed to finally get the forum back up and running, pointing at the correct dns address, but no email again...

    Email working now. Uninstalled the mailjet plugin and installed the smtp plugin.

    I made some changes to a users profile and after reloading and restarting Nodebb I now have the following error:

    ./nodebb upgrade seemed to solve the issue.

    Will I ever get the forum to be stable enough to deploy to my clients..?

    @mattT well, I took less than an hour to configure NodeBB + Ghost + Plugins + Themes when I installed them the first time, that's because I knew what I was doing.

    If you don't know how to install it, I suggest you to buy help for the off-site installation or even use the deployed installation, so you will not have any kind of problem 🙂

    As you may see here: the Free & Open Source edition is called "Developer's Edition", so if you're not a "techy", don't bless the "programme" if you don't manage to use it 🙂

    @Giggiux Bully for you 😉
