Questions about Discourse Forum and Digital Ocean? Hosting?

Hi guys!

I wanted to create a forum in my specialty, so I bought a domain and a hosting on a site they also installed WordPress in it.

I wanted to use Discourse Forum", so I used this tutoral to get it done:

But I have issues, also questions:

  • does this mean my host is basically Digital Ocean, not the original site I paid?

  • I managed to set it up but my main page is still Worldpress, ( so it currently look like this " " ) is it possible to migrate the forum to my main site.

  • I followed the guide but the mail system doesn’t work so nobod can register… Any tip what I screwed up?

Thanks in advance, Im not on IT field so thaks for the understanding.

You need to follow Discourse official Standard Installation. It’s easiest to have Discourse on its own droplet without any other web servers.
