Issue with Mattermost Digital Ocean 1-click app


Mattermost Digital Ocean 1-click app not working after setup.

Steps to reproduce

Deploy a new Digital Ocean 1-click droplet for Mattermost and enter the information when asked by the installer.

Expected behavior

Mattermost app should be accessible via the newly configured url

Observed behavior

: nginx error in browser
: error in server: Job for mattermost.service failed because the control process exited with error code

Kindly advise regarding how to remedy this. Also, is it still a good option to use the 1-click app or should i rather set it up from scratch?


Hello, @shrey

Just to make sure that I don’t miss out on any specific points, you followed the steps as mentioned in the tutorial video - ?

Just want to make sure that our guide is not outdated. Thanks.

@ahmaddanial Thanks for your response.

Yes, this is precisely how i went about it.

After the ‘Restarting Mattermost’ step, i see the errors (mainly Nginx related). And subsequently, the url (for the configured application) doesn’t work.

Can you show us the contents of your Nginx error log? It would greatly help in identifying where there may be issues in the build/documentation steps for deploying in the cloud.

(You can print the contents of the Nginx error log file to console using the command
sudo cat /var/log/nginx/error.log
