I’ll attempt to explain my needs and see if what I’m trying to do is possible.
I use DigitalOcean for both my Wordpress site and my new discourse forum. The Wordpress is it’s own droplet with nginx and php7 installed running a somewhat standard LEMP stack build. This is the main domain.
I started up a second droplet using the one-click-install for Discourse forum available on DigitalOcean.
My goal is to have the Single Sign On working where Wordpress is the main site. This way my customers (who are purchasing subscription boxes) can automatically login and access the Discourse forum with the same login creds they designated on Wordpress.
As of right now I have followed the guides located within these forums and haven’t been successful in making SSO work.
My main question to start is, if the two sites are on different droplets with different server config and different ip addresses, will the SSO feature work?
