Anyone gotten Element to work when deployed via elestio?
Wanted to test out some FOSS slack alternatives for a local ngo and element is a top choice. Deployed and followed the instructions in the email to set up:
- Added CNAME record in my domain registrar (google), and added to elestio per https://docs.elest.io/books/security/page/custom-domain-and-automated-encryption-ssltls
- Brought down the service with
docker-compose downafter SSHing in, and changed
- Ran the following command:
docker run --rm -v "/opt/app/synapse:/data" -e SYNAPSE_SERVER_NAME=chat.example.com -e SYNAPSE_REPORT_STATS=yes matrixdotorg/synapse:latest generate
- Brought docker back up with
docker-compose up -d
However, the service is unfortunately unusable. At both the default elestio CNAME, and my custom one
chat.example.com, I have the following error on the element web client login page:
Can't connect to homeserver - please check your connectivity, ensure your homeserver's SSL certificate is trusted, and that a browser extension is not blocking requests. Cannot reach homeserver Ensure you have a stable internet connection, or get in touch with the server admin
