So the instructions on that page do not quite work.
- The wget command that supposedly installs both docker and git doesn’t!
So I installed git directly.
After running discourse-setup and filling the info, I got the message “rebuilding in 5 seconds” and then soon after,
which: no docker.io in (/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin)
Device “docker0” does not exist.
Cannot connect to the docker daemon - verify it is running and you have access
So now I have no idea whether that wget mechanism installed docker and having never needed docker before, I’ll have to educate myself. By the way, why can’t discourse be installed directly on a machine or VM? Why is docker necessary for discourse?
I’ll spend some time and figure it out but it’s a little frustrating when the directions are wrong and/or incomplete.
