Issues with deploying rocket chat


I am trying to set up rocket chat with a website. My website is hosted on GitHub, and I have bought a domain to make rocket chat work with ssl. However, the chat is blocked by the browser (I seem to need Restrict access inside any Iframe off in rocket chat settings) and only shows a grey rectangle (no chat). Interestingly, I can access it in Safari, but in no other browser. I also cannot seem to embed it in the iframe, which is what I’m trying to do. My website is here: ML4H: Chat and my chat is hosted here:

It appears that if I set to true “Allow Anonymous Read” in Accounts, the rocket chat loads. However, I cannot authenticate/log in, because that screen does not appear.

Okay thanks so much. I have looped in a peer who can better assist. Please wait while he gets back to you. I really appreciate your patience.

I was able to resolve the issue. I followed the following guide:

In particular, I had to log in with
Meteor.loginWithPassword(‘my_root_username’, ‘my_root_password’)
and then turn off Iframe in Accounts->Iframe


Awesome! Thanks for updating as well!
