Yeah your whole directory is owned by root. You should not be doing a sudo git clone, just a git clone, so user reddit owns it all. I'd delete it and re-do it.

You nailed it. I had gotten into the habit of always putting "sudo" in front of every command because I was getting a lot of "permission denied" if I didn't do that, so yes, I did put "sudo git" while installing that git clone. So I just reinstalled the lounge, and it seemed to work.

Where I'm at now: when I load, it works ... but when I load the "unsafe scripts" it breaks the SSL and reverts back to http ... that loads the box on the right (which I think is the IRC client?) but it's blank and it says "reddit.local's IP address could not be found." I am positive I edited /etc/hosts to have my VPS IP point to reddit.local

You should have zero "reddit.local" on your server. No need to add it to the hosts file or try to route requests using it.

You'll need to change a bunch of chat config to not use reddit.local instead. Anywhere you see reddit.local put instead.

Ok, I'll do that but first ... did you see how I broke the UI while working on the rest of the admin config? I'm not sure but I think it was while I was working on this section: Set the default subs $ cd ~/src/reddit/r2 $ paster shell run.ini # paste the following, hit enter: from r2.models import * srs = [Subreddit._by_name(n) for n in ("pics", "videos", "science", "technology")] LocalizedDefaultSubreddits.set_global_srs(srs) LocalizedFeaturedSubreddits.set_global_srs([Subreddit._by_name('pics')]) exit()

Here's a pastebin of the section of the github I was working on when the UI broke:

This is what I found when I ran grep reddit.local

reddit@redditclone:~$ sudo grep -r "reddit.local" /etc/
[sudo] password for reddit: 
/etc/letsencrypt/accounts/acme-{"creation_host": "reddit.local", "creation_dt": "2019-07-18T01:30:22Z"}
/home/reddit/vm fuse.sshfs rw,nosuid,nodev,user=reddit 0 0

There are 4 mentions of reddit.local related to chat in the README. You need to update those 4.
