How to run discourse on my laptop


(paul) #1

Hi,
I like to play a bit with discourse. To also understand how to install it I would like to let it run fist on my laptop.
What I did so far: - installed docker
- installed discourse

What I don’t know: How do I no let discourse run by typing an ip into my browser. Is there somewhere an tutorial about?

I know that I could do it also more simple with a cloud…but I like to understand how to do it on my own. (I have free access to a server, just want to install it first on my computer to be comfortable with)

I’m using debian jessie

hope someone can help me out?

if you run ifconfig, you should see a virtual network port called docker0, with its IP address. eg:

If discourse is installed and running correctly, then this IP should work in a local browser

great thx @Tom_Newsom. :slight_smile:

How do I come into “root@discourse” ?
(I’m super new to all that stuff)
sudo -s discourse doesn’t work.
