Error: not being able to read the authentication settings

Question on messaging by kiskadee.Dev, on 11/2/21:
Hello, I’m trying to avoid the ‘dedicated domain’ part of the install guide but it’s giving me a headache, when I try to open the website it gives me an error about not being able to read the authentication settings… will try to post a picture

Your issue is that api.192.168.X.X isn’t a valid domain

192.168.X.X is a valid IP, and you can access a website using the IP (and port) of a server.

api.yourdomain.com is a valid domain name.

api. breaches the RFC and therefore can’t be used.
