One-click install or Docker install?


Hi Folks,

I am going to install Discourse on Digital Ocean. Just figured out that they have a One-click install through their own panel. I also noticed this tutorial by Docker.

Which one do you recommend? First one seems more seamless. Am I wrong?

If you want to work on a 1GB droplet, then follow our install guide. If you are OK with a 2GB RAM droplet, use the one-click install.

(tl;dr swapfiles are generally disallowed on cloud services, for political reasons. We don’t actually need 2GB to run, but during web upgrades, you may briefly exceed 1GB RAM usage.)

One click install on DO?
