Regarding installation of discourse without root access


(@SenpaiMass) #1

Can discourse be installed on a new set up using the docker method. Without root. I have sudo to my new server.

sudo is root; you use the sudo program to execute programs (or get a shell) with root privileges.


(Felix Freiberger) #3

Using Docker requires root privileges (or special privileges to use Docker, which effectively give you root access).

What do you mean by “without root”, but “I have sudo”? Do you mean that the root account is disabled, but you can use it using sudo?

The root account is disabled, the hosting has provided me a server with no root access.

Never mind just found a way.

Sudo su!
