How to install on a subdomain?


#1

I’ll try to install this weekend. I can install on a sub-domain? example:

mysite.com = Installation of Wordpress from Godaddy
forum.mysite.com = Installation of Discourse of the Digital Ocean

Is it possible? Or do I have to have a domain for each?

shouldnt’ be any problem. Meta is also running under this subdomain, while www shows a static web-page. Same for the setup I have for my community.

Thanks,

but they are on the same host, no? I try to put the sub-domain in a different host. Do not know yet if it will work.

As long as you set up the DNS records correctly, using a subdomain is no different than using a separate domain completely. Try and you will see. :wink:

Yes, go for it! This is the recommended setup.

If you want discourse in a subfolder, or to set up discourse at the apex domain, that is when things get weird. :wink:
