I have read through the installation guides and previous comments in relation to this but can’t find a definitive answer.
Can you fresh install discourse at
example.com as opposed to
sub.domain.com? Are there any drawbacks to doing so?
Will swapping out the sub domain for the root domain in the installation guide suffice or does it require further configuration? Guide: [can’t post 2 links] (it’s the 30 minute install guide)
In addition do you recommend the manual installation or use one of digital ocean’s images?
