...a Supplemental to 'How To Deploy Discourse Using Nginx As A Proxy And Install A Certificate'

So I was trying to follow along with this for some time:

He certainly seemed to know what he was doing, but whether to spend 45 minutes to life finding out another story. I managed to replicate after much perturbation…in my soul. Any case, I don’t want you to go through what I went through, so let me try to… supplement… this man’s epic err… odyssey. I’ll tell you why I’m a tad irked here - it would appear he would not let me comment my offer of aid to others, it would appear, and that made me perturbed. My comments, below, containing our list of commands was deleted while my other comments were not. So, I decided to make my own … supplement… to the video…

Now I’m not going to say this is correct, nor efficient. But I will say that it attempts to reduce the amount of homework required to get a discourse going which shares its NGINX reverse proxy with other containers using sockets. This worked for me, but I will perhaps soon go through and get rid of unnecessary steps, perhaps not. Maybe someone else will. That’s the beauty of public discourse without the delete comment button!!!
