Hey there! I have been ‘shopping’ for different forum solutions that have nothing to do with PHP and really innovate the entire ‘thing’ of forums. I’ve checked out NodeBB but it is lacking in community-related aspects that I need for my forum. Discourse looks to be exactly what I need.
I noticed the emphasis on DO around here. I tried them, did my research. I decided instead to go to Vultr.
My questions are:
- Will Discourse work on a Vultr instance? If so, is the 4GB Memory and 2 CPU enough for a Discourse multi installation? I want to do two forums and a WordPress blog for each and include forced HTTPS through port 443.
- I am willing to re-install my server instance if need be. What do I need to do (in order of completion) to set up nginx with Docker and Discourse to host two separate forums? (on two separate domain names: domain1.com for WordPress blog; forum.domain1.com for first Discourse forum; domain2.com for the other Wordpress blog; forum.domain2.com for second Discourse forum)
I have gone over what I could to search for these answers. I got some useful threads, but I have no idea in what order to do them.
Granted, yes, I am a beginner with Linux and Ruby on Rails but I have been practicing with the command line over the past month. I am not new to working with web-related skills needed to do this.
What also is kinda worrying me is this thread on Discourse performance.
Thank you for reading. I hope I don’t come off as demanding! I really want to dig in and get started but all this wealth of information is daunting at best. A good point in the right direction to get started would be ace.
