Description

We need a Discourse instance. I've created a hosting order at members.neweconomy.net. Before I spend hours of frustration trying to figure out the best way to install it, I was hoping you might point me in the right direction towards a guide or a specific process I should do that you recommend. Thanks.

Yes, it is not something you'll be able to install in a regular hosting order. Definitely talk to jamie about this first. Assigning this to him for now.

Unfortunately, discourse is a complex application with a lot of dependencies.

I'd first encourage you to try out the discourse instance that we have made available to all of our members: https://comment.mayfirst.org/ - you can login with your existing username and password.

By default, all topics are public but, if you want, we can create a private group for you which will allow you to create topics in a category that only you have access to.

If that works for you - I would encourage you to go that route. Maintain discourse takes a bit of work, so having MF/PL run one instance for everyone saves a lot of efforts.

If you really need you own instance, then we could set you up with a dedicated virtual guest and you can maintain it yourself. We do ask members that require their own virtual guest to contribute more in membership benefits though (typically between $50 and $300 per month based on what you can afford).

Let us know what you think!
