Proxy during discourse bootstrap

If you’re stuck on bootstrapping with the proxy method, I’ve had good success with the cached install method that requires no internet at all on the machine you’re installing on: How to install Discourse on an isolated CentOS 7 server

It works the same on any linux distribution that can run a recent version of docker.
I recommend creating a shell script for the git clone steps to save a lot of time when it’s time to update the caches, and to make sure you update everything at the same time.
It quickly becomes a mess if you forget to keep all your plugins in sync with the base discourse.
