Rocket.Chat is the leading open source team chat software solution. Free, unlimited and completely customizable with on-premises and SaaS cloud hosting.
Replace email, HipChat & Slack with the ultimate team chat software solution.
Out of the box you can access Rocket.Chat server at: http://Droplet-IP:3000
You will likely want a registered domain name to access Rocket.Chat. If you would like your server to be accessible over https we provide the option to use letsencrypt by running:
# rocketchatctl configure --lets-encrypt --root-url=https://chat.yourcompany.com [email protected]
In case you do not own a registered domain, you could use the public IP of your droplet, but traefik will not be able to fetch certificates for you so you will see a privacy alert message when loading https://droplet-IP
# rocketchatctl configure --lets-encrypt --root-url=https://droplet-IP [email protected]
If you would like https with something other than letsencrypt provided certificates you will have to manually edit the traefik config to add it.
In case you do own a registered domain, but you do not want to use traefik, you can just configure your site URL running:
# rocketchatctl configure --rocketchat --root-url=http://chat.yourcompany.com:3000
Keep your RocketChat server updated using rocketchatctl update. Run rocketchatctl -h to see the full list of available options.
