UNSOLVED cant find the url im supposed to go to
Hello, recently i have been trying to install cloudron on my linux machine, though during the installation process, I have not recorded my ip for portforwarding to a domain. Can someone please tell me how to recover it or at least how to reinstall?
@cs9103 not sure I am following, so you have a Cloudron installed in your local network and now don't know what IP this server is currently using?
If that is the case, then usually you can log into the router dashboard and get a list of connected systems. Once you have found the IP you can then setup the portforwarding. Also it may make sense to configure your router in a way that it always assigns the same IP to your server.
The domain has to be pointing to your public IP address though.
@nebulon Hi, thanks for responding,
I have gone in and found my device, though i am unable to go to the link. Also im not sure if it it installed on my network, i have just installed it on my linux machine.
i have just installed it on my linux machine
Like on your personal working machine, which you are using right now to write this question?
@brutalbirdie no, i am using my main computer right now
I think the easiest solution is to reinstall, can any of you tell me how?
sorry the reply came late i thought i sent it a couple of days ago
This has come cluttered and confusing.
Please provide a precise description of your setup.
The url should be
https://<THE IP OF THE DEVICE RUNNING CLOUDRON>/.
If you are this stuck, maybe it would be good to start from step 0.
Reinstall Ubuntu and start from the get-go.

@cs9103 Make sure you understand that Cloudron should be installed, not on the machine you are working on tight now, but on ANOTHER machine either on your local network, OR on a remote location (i.e on a VPS in the cloud).
it always was
@cs9103 Well this is a rather disappointing answer.
Please when writing forum posts, questions, answers always keep in mind that the other person reading your text must understand you precisely to prevent misconceptions.
At best there should be no room for speculations since these lead to mistakes understanding you.
Right now I read @micmc answer:
either on your local network, OR on a remote location (i.e on a VPS in the cloud).
You @cs9103 answer with:
it always was
"It always was", what!? local machine or VPS?
Please understand that this kind of communication can get frustrating really fast when it could be done so much easier with a bit more precise wording.
Please provide a precise explanation of your setup.
sorry about that, by 'it was' i meant that it was on my secondary machine. I am new to these things and I apologise for anything annoying.
