Question

Already have Discourse droplet, can I add MediaWiki

I currently have a discourse droplet running on Ubuntu 16.04.2 x64 (2GB mem, 60GB disk). It’s been running almost 3 years now.

If I want to add a MediaWiki to it, how should I go about doing that? I currently have a mediaWiki up and running on another server, but want to transfer it over to consolidate.

Hi there @GreatMoustache,

It would depend on how your Discourse is currently setup. Is it running inside a container and if so on what ports? Do you already use Nginx as a reverse proxy or Apache?

Besides that, what you could do is use Nginx and have 2 separate Nginx server blocks, one for Discourse and one for MediaWiki.

You can take a look at this article here on how to get started with Nginx server blocks:

Thanks @bobbyiliev

I was able to use the instructions from Discourse forums here to get nginx installed alongside my discourse; note that the first comment updates the original post with some additional settings; and I also had to use (details) the _ecc version of the keys and an additional env variable to get my site working properly (at least, it seems to be working)
