What is the default file?

Hi I was strolling for Forums today and found Vanilla however, I like Discourse better. I downloaded the Discourse source from GitHub but, when I upload it to Filezilla it brings me upto the site and shows me the directory instead of the actual Community/Forum. Is there any direct way I can check if it’s working? If so which file may I set a redirect to if so.

Does Discourse need compiling as it uses Composer?

You don’t install Discourse by simply uploading the source files. It won’t work if you’re using regular shared hosting, either. See the installation instructions here: https://github.com/discourse/discourse/blob/master/docs/INSTALL-cloud.md


Thanks for the help.
