How can I install discourse as forum.example.com with Easyengine, Letsencrypt, Wordpress all together?

I use Easyengine for simple web server installation.

Is there any one who is using discourse with Easyengine, Letsencrypt, Wordpress?

I followed many instruction, but I couldn’t find the solution yet.

Sincerely,

Honggi An

Try this: How to set up Discourse on a server with existing Apache sites

@pfaffman thank you very much for your help, but I prefer to use nginx(Easyengine) as a server program, so I am looking for nginx based solution. Do you have any other opinion?

It’s essentially the same. You’ll just configure nginx to reverse proxy rather than apache.

Also, you can search for “nginx reverse proxy” and find stuff like: Discourse in Docker + NGINX reverse proxy + SSL everywhere + OAuth2 Custom

@pfaffman Thank you so much for your reply and concern, In my case Discourse is the most useful solution for making wordpress + blog + community, but setting discourse is quite hard for me. Maybe I prefer Easyengine so much, so I am looking for A-Z solution. Thank you so much.

Sincerely,

From what I can tell, EasyEngine is unable to do what is required to allow Discourse to run on the same host: Reverse proxy question - EasyEngine - rtCommunity. Since EasyEngine doesn’t do what it required, it makes it harder.

The simplest solution would be to run Discourse on a separate server on a subdomain, following the INSTALL-cloud instructions.

The way that I do it is to have CaddyServer do the reverse redirect; you might check Running Discourse with Caddy Server.

Dear @pfaffman

Thank you so much for your specific information, I didn’t know it is such hard thing before, also I know caddy server for the first time. I will try my best for solving this issues, and I will contact by e-mail when I need your help. By the way I don’t know you do an activity in here, quite impressed with your activity and reply for my useless question.

Sincerely,

Honggi An
