Where can i find the complete server and Database Requirements for the Discourse. If my server doesn’t support database , cloud hosting is the only options?

Please Help!!!

The only official way to install discourse is through docker, so you need to have ssh access as root.

OTH, a VPS service today it’s pretty cheap, and you can even pay by hour on digital ocean if you just want to test.

If you aren’t a tech person you can use a hosted service provided by Discourse team or https://www.discoursehosting.com/

Server must have 1Gb RAM, dual core CPU, and OS must be 64 bit Linux that supports Docker installation, using aufs file system. (No “devicemapper” which does not work)
