I would like to start a Discourse forum like this on Digital Ocean but I’m confused about which way to go.
Do I create an Ubuntu server droplet first and then install Discourse?
Or do I just do a once-click install of Discourse from their app offerings?
If I do the one-click install won’t this create a server droplet anyway?
Thanks for the help and clarification.
If you go with the premade droplet, it will already be hardened to the standarda of this guide here:
It will also be like an appliance made just for discourse. If you wish to do it manually, then you can of course do that. They do have a tutorial for that as well!
If you need any help with this, then we are here for you.
The DO guides are solid. I’m fairly certain that’s what I followed the last time I set up Discourse. Don’t forget to use the DLN credit for DigitalOcean to get $100 credit - https://do.co/dln
This is very helpful. Thank you. I want to learn about setting up a server, so I think I’ll go with setting up a server first and then installing Discourse.
I already have a DO account so I can’t use the credit
I’m just curious who composed/wrote the forum rules and guidelines? They are the most intelligent ones I’ve read to date. Does that come pre-composed? Kudos to the author, in whatever case.
