All of the tutorials and how-to’s when configuring/editing discourse seem to be in regard to self hosted plans.
I don’t see how i can follow a tutorial like Change the domain name or rename my Discourse? to change my host setup.
I also can’t see an account login via the main discourse site - to edit anything including anything to do with the plan and subscription that is being paid.
I feel like I have made a mistake by setting up a hosted plan with a test domain , because now i cannot easily change the domain. I have been doing all my importing/css changes/sso testing and settings tweaks on a linux box via virtual box. Now its time to go live, changing my DNS from my test subdomain to a real subdomain (via cloudflare) gives me an error ’ Sorry, the site you are looking for does not exist.’ and if I get discourse to import my backup (the one i generated on the dev machine) I know all the links are going to be wrong because they’re baked in.
Should I just close down the hosted-by-discourse.com plan and just host it myself? It seems like if the site crashes or i need to do something to the database, I am at the whim of discourse support.
