While many are aware of the classic $99 install package that I have been doing for hobbyists for two years now, I would like to make it widely known that I also have a range of installations for those who need more fully-featured installs. (And I really recommend the Lite Install that includes https to anyone who’s not going to go and turn on https themselves.)
Having done several hundred installations, my process is highly automatized. My script sends very clear instructions, I am very experienced in helping people understand how to set the requisite DNS records and troubleshoot problems with Mailgun.
When you place an order with your Mailgun and Digital Ocean API keys I run a script that automatically creates the droplet, creates the domain on Mailgun, installs Discourse and sends you instructions for what to do next. When you get your DNS in place, I get a notification so I can check your mailgun config and enable https.
If you need custom plugins, 2-container installs, or installation on something other than Digital Ocean, I can do that too.
