I have just finished spinning up Mattermost for the first time by following this guide:
Everything is working as expected (i have not set up SSL as i dont have a real domain, and have used “example.com” to start). In the guide it says after creating an account, and creating a team, I should navigate to Settings>General>Configuration and set the “Site URL.” Since I spun up Nginx with the site www.example dot com, do I need to leave this “Site URL” as example dot com? Or can I change it?
And if I need to leave it the same, in the event I start a new Nginx service with www.mymattermostthatnooneelsehas dot com, and a new Mattermost DB with the same name “mymattermostthatnooneelsehas” and ACTUALLY purchase that domain; Can I then change the Site URL to www.mymattermostthatnooneelsehas dot com or do i have to start a new mattermost service as well with updated config files reflecting this?
So my over arching question is, what is the significance of the Site URL.
(Since im a new user I cannot post more than 2 links, hence the www.example DOT com.)
