Setting up discourse on my own


(Thomas Ralph ) #1

Hi on Saturday I will be setting up discourse on my own through OceanDrop. I need some advice on setting it up. Also how do I create a mail server.
(I have looked through the tutorials and still have no clue)

Thanks Thomas

Follow the official guides. If you can’t follow the guides, pay someone to set it up for you, which is also linked in the official guide.

Do you have a link for these guidelines?

How do I set up the mail server, do I have to use mailgun as it doesn’t work !

You would have to explain things in more detail than “it doesn’t work”, but you are also encouraged to use any of the other providers listed at
