The install guide asks you to clone the repository to
/var/discourse. Is there anything, which depends on it, or can I clone the repo to a totally different directory and have no problem with any part of discourse not finding the tools (not counting myself to replace the directory mentioning
/var/discourse to the choice of my directory)?
And requiring to be root seems to be a bit too much: is being part of the docker group enough?
How about if I would like to serve discourse at a port above 1024 and have an nginx or haproxy or whatever to wire that to the “usual” ports (80/443)? Is that possible?
