Help needed: installing discourse in a new domain with no technical background


(Christian) #1

Hello there,

Greetings from Barcelona.

I bought discourse long time ago with one-time support to set it up and running. That business project never took off and hadn’t actually used the forum.

Now I have a new project where I could use it and wanted to change it to a new domain + upgrade to the newer version.

No technical background: I have it installed in DigitalOcean, have read the doc, to be honest, don´t know where to start.

What would you recommend me to do?

Many thanks

Changing the domain is somewhat more complicated than starting anew. If you don’t need any of the data on your old forum, it’s easier to just start fresh.
