There are two:
I usually just go with the simple method (1), and just have a container (app1, app2, app3 etc) for each forum. But I am considering going with the second option - although currently I am only running one Discourse forum.
- Are there any other benefits to going with option 2? What does ‘powerful’ mean exactly - more performant?
- Is it easy enough to set up? (Are there any sample ‘step-by-step’ guides that go through the set-up process?)
- If I have a relatively busy forum, which option is preferred? (1 has served us well up to this point)
The forum is not ‘huge’ but fairly busy, we get about a thousand posts a week and serve over half a million page views a month. Which would you recommend for us? Shall we continue to use (1) for now and then move to (2) as our needs grow? (Currently moving to a new server hence considering this now.)
