Currently, discourse only supports docker install officially. We installed the discourse docket manually following the basic setup guide. A little more information for customizing is available here.

We have currently two outstanding bugs with discourse:

  • multiple hostnames are not supported (tracked in #1)
  • email TLS support is WTF?! (TODO: make ticket)

Setting up discourse required to mess around quite a lot with email settings, which required to:

  • edit /var/discourse/containers/app.yml to change email settings
  • run /var/discourse/launcher rebuild app

Email settings could be tested with /var/discourse/discourse-doctor, but it happens after rebuilding the container with launcher so the whole process is very slow.

In case we need to restart the container, we can do docker restart app. To inspect the container from within, we can do docker exec -it app /bin/bash.

After many discussions, we concluded during the second meeting that we wanted to get far away from discourse and its many problems.

In the meantime, since discourse was in any case not used in our community, we removed the links from the homepage, favoring the chatroom instead.
