I have fallen in love with discourse as my new community solution.
Before installing, and getting ahead of myself, I need to know what is possible concerning migration.
I have an existing community, i have a 3 instances of PHPBB 2 (french, dutch, english users). 3 databases, biggest is 800mb. 30k users.
my site also has some static HTML content.
hosted on VPS (apache, cpanel and such)
to be situation:
1 instance of discourse serving all languages. all current language forums imported in discourse in separate archives.
keeping the same domain.
How can I do this with as little downtime as possible and keeping the same URL for the forum? Is it possible to import 3 databases into 1 forum?
what are possible scenarios?
I will host discourse myself as I have no budget for the hosted version. and that means i will probably need to move to digitalocean as well?
basically i need to know what the smartest way is to approach this.
thank you in advance for any help !
