hello, I’m very new to discourse and I couldn’t decide anything. To use Discourse, should I keep it on the same server as my web application that I wrote with react, or should I use it with discourse hosting? Which would be to my advantage, both financially and technically.
That’s dealing with two different considerations at the same time, I suggest breaking that down:
Decide if you want experienced professionals to host your Discourse securely without having to be responsible for as much maintenance. If you have significant technical skill that may not be necessary, but you may choose to do so to cut down on the time you need to invest.
If you have a over provisioned server and extra technical expertise to go with it, then you can find topics about how to do that. If you’re asking the question, then you’ll probably be happier running it on its own server (or paying for hosting).
