Using Discourse in traditional server


(Siva) #1

Hi,

Currently i’m using vbulletin 4.2 in WiredTree VPS.

Can I migrate to discourse ? Is it feasible or should I run it in DO ?

If wired tree support docker (I bet they doo) you can continue with then, just follow the guide to DO, it should work there

Is docker really necessary to run Discourse ?

The server side of Discourse is Ruby on Rails backed by a Postgres database and Redis cache.

Can I achieve with docker? Currently my server in WT is running CentOS 5.11 while docker is supported in CentO 7.

So the topic ain’t about WiredTree, but using an ancient os?

The only supported way to install Discourse is using Docker, but if you are Linux and Ruby proeficient you can git clone it and give it your whirl.
