Syncing App With Self Hosted Site


#1

Hello

This is probably a pretty easy answer I just can’t seem to find it.

I am self hosting Rocket chat and was curious how to find the server name so that I can sync it with the mobile app and mac app?

I tried putting my domain and it didn’t seem to work. Am I overlooking something?

Thanks

Did you install it on the same server as your website? Is it a VPS or a dedicated server?

Does your hostingplatform allow the usage of port 3000?

Yeah I did install it as the same as the site.

I’m hosting with SSDNodes and I’m unsure if it allows for port 3000. I could find out, but they promote self hosting rocket chat with them so I imagine it does.

I was able to sync up with the Mac OS client. It brought up a SSL notification (I use LetsEncrypt) that I accepted and it synced up. I haven’t been able to do it with the iOS app because it doesn’t end up showing the notification.
Do I need to fix my SSL certificate do you think?

I’m also not receiving emails through the system; whether it be by clicking the ‘Forgot Password’ links etc.
Is there something I must do with the VPS to allow for emails to be sent?

I appreciate the help.

I don’t think the app works unless you have it setup with https. I tried to get it working with http port 3000 and wasn’t successful.

I am using the Lets Encrypt service myself on my chatbox. Works perfectly.

I also had problems receiving the messages. Make sure that you select custom messages. When I used the default messages I had problems receiving mails too.

Also make sure that you enter the IP address of your chatbox in the spf dns record. Or else your provider will think the messages are spam.
