Multi-site requirement


(Hammad Abbasi) #1

I am going to implement multi-site discourse using docker, Can someone share what should be the minimum configuration of my server to host 15-20 sites ?

Because of the way multisite works, you need the same amount of resources to host 20-30 sites as you would one site with the same amount of aggregate traffic. Without knowing that, anything would be a guess.

Fair enough, One more question - Can i make this multi-site feature work without using docker? ( I am not entirely sure if the multi-site is only possible via docker)

No idea. We don’t support non-Docker installs, because there’s a zillion ways of doing it, so I’ve never tried. I don’t see any reason why you couldn’t (it’s just a config file and such), but if you break it, you get to keep both pieces.

are you able to share if docker uses single Instance for web and multiple instance of data for mult-site setup ?


(Matt Palmer) #6

It can go either way. There’s nothing special, from a container split perspective, between single site and multisite.
