The problem I ran into was the version of Discourse that was available as an AWS image (aka AMI) did not seem compatible with the developer version we’ve been working on: Although I got it up and running, I was unable to do a restore…it kept throwing errors. Beyond that, it was shown as version 1.9.3-dirty and I couldn’t even do a backup/restore of the default install without errors being thrown.
So what are the options to use Discourse in an AWS context?
What are your recommendations?
What are the costs?
If we wanted to host ourselves (at AWS) and ensure it scales and is resilient by using such services as RDS and Elasticache (for Redis), with that work with these solutions?
