Rocket.Chat's Community Open Call 🎤 Jan 19th, 2022 Join us!

Only blank page after following Docker Containers installation guide

Description

I followed the guide at:

as close as possible, installing rocket chat on my VPS server. I used the certbot for step 5 and thus skipped b and c.

HTTPS itself seems to work, but when I try to visit the rocket.chat server in the browser I just get an empty blank page.

I added the nginx conf files and the docker-compose.yml below. Do you need any additional info?

Server Setup Information

  • Version of Rocket.Chat Server: latest (cant see it yet since i cannot login/view the server)
  • Operating System: Debian 10
  • Deployment Method: docker
  • Number of Running Instances: 1
  • DB Replicaset Oplog: ?
  • NodeJS Version: ?
  • MongoDB Version: 4.0

Any additional Information
