I work at Render, a modern cloud provider. We just released a really quick and straightforward way to self-host Discourse:
Advantages over the current official install guide:
- Install Discourse in under 5 minutes
- Fully managed and free SSL + custom domain management
- No SSH needed
- Fully configurable self-hosted option
- Built to scale!
If you end up trying it out, we’d love to hear about your experience and how we can make things even easier/faster.
