So I have a Mybb forum currently which is not actually that big in terms of posts and members but because of it being an old application and not being mobile friendly I am seriously looking at Discourse with a lot of interest. It is clean and modern and I feel this is going to be good for my community.
I have read the tutorial on how to Migrate a MyBB forum to Discourse but it is old and I have seen some people say they’ve ran into a lot of brick walls with it.
My question is, is it still relevant and does it still work and if it doesn’t and needs to involve a developer it’s not really going to be possible because my forum is a non profit community. So what then would you all advise I do going forward from here?
Also another question I have is what would be the best and cheapest hosting option for Discourse? A lot of people have recommended Digital Ocean but I was wondering if there’s any other options out there
If Digital Ocean is the better option, would Discourse run and work on a 1 GB ram package?
