This thread will sound a bit layman-ish since I’m not a developer. I run a company with a pretty small dev team, and since we’re slammed with bigger projects, I’ve taken it upon myself to do as much work on this forum as I can on my own.
I’m still on my 14 day trial, but I’ve already customized the the design to my liking. I was assuming the next step would be changing the domain to community.mysite.com, and have the devs do the SSO with our site’s database, and we’d be up and running.
Is it really that simple? I’ve been seeing posts about installations and that sounds a bit more involved than I was anticipating, and they’re worrying me a bit.
I assumed Discourse would be hosting the forum like they are now for the trial, but if installation is a part of this process, the what does that mean for my plan of “doing all the work so the devs don’t have to”?
What are all the things that need to be done for me to have a working forum under my domain name with user accounts that connect my site?
