Install Discourse on Bluehost Sub Domain

Hi Guys,

Im new to this. I want to install Discourse on a subdomain to my main website:

The main site is a WordPress site running on Bluehost. I wanted to know if it was possible to install discourse on a subdomain that is running on Bluehost - and if so how would I go around doing this?

Thank you for any support you guys can give - I get this is quite an open-ended question so please bear with me.


About the subdomain and the multiple websites, sure:

If I’m not mistaken, you already have apache running, so the dns being setup, I would probably stop it, install discourse “as usually”, adjust the app.yml (ssl, socketed maybe) then setup an apache virtual host as explained by neounix and restart it :crossed_fingers:

about Bluehost, you’ll probably need the vps or dedicated hosting, not the managed wordpress one, but beware


The easiest thing will probably be to create a digital ocean droplet and configure your DNS to point to it, NOT create a domain with whatever tool they have. I’d recommend first doing Discourse official Standard Installation before attempting to make it work with something else.
