After some hair pulling, I installed Discourse


After 2 days of banging my head against the wall and realising Discourse doesn’t like apex domains (and yes, i’ve read the article on the forums explaying that) i was able to install on a subdomain.

My fresh Discourse is here

Now, if only there was a way to make point to . . .

You could achieve that in one of two ways (both consist of a redirect)

  1. You could use cloudflare page rules to redirect to or
  2. You could set up nginx to perform this redirect for you. I believe discourse’ internal nginx is configured so that all requests coming in are redirected to discourse hostname. See: Redirect additional domain(s) to your Discourse instance

and Congratulations :tada: on getting your new discourse up & running.


Hi @itsbhanusharma thanks for the guide, i’ll definitely take a look :eyes:
