I have read so many discussions and articles from DigitalOcean (DO) and a few from this Meta community on how to install Discourse or how to install Wordpress (WP) on one or multiple droplets (via DO).
My question is… What is the most optimized way to set up WP and Discourse to run together, on a single droplet?
I’d love to get some step-by-step help from the community to know the best way to deploy WP/Discourse to be optimized for security, minimal resource usage, etc. It seems the building these on a LEMP stack is a great approach and that’s what I’d like to do… but I’m just not savvy enough to make sure I’m not missing anything!)
Any help would be greatly appreciated and I presume would help many people!
Great conversation and some strong advice from @codinghorror over here, talking about how, as a best practice, Discourse should be set up as a subdomain and not a subdirectory: Wordpress with Discourse in a subfolder Thanks Jeff!
