@PitaJ said in New AWS EC2 Install - Can't write to database (UI won't save settings or posting new topics):
Is there url value in config.json exactly equal to the url at which you are accessing your site?
Yes. The URL value is set to my ip address like the following:
Problem 1: I had nginx configured incorrectly. This was obvious because my ip address (with no port) would load the nginx screen. I was still forced to add :4567 to the end of the IP.
Error when trying to restart nginx with:
sudo systemctl restart nginx.service
Used this to check the log:
sudo journalctl -xel
Determined that the file "forum.example.com" was still in the "sites-enabled" directory and therefore was trying to also be run alongside my domain config file. After deleting the example file and restarting, I was then able to access nodebb from the ip without the port.
Still getting "connection to NodeBB was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect."
Still can't add content or adjust settings.
Having trouble assigning a google domain name to the AWS IP address. I'm used to just using name hosts from a web server, but it seems I have to utilize "custom resource records" and simply input the IP address?
