Question

How can I add a forum to my Ghost droplet?

Hello! I have a website made with 1-click-app Ghost(It’s using Nginx), let’s say https://example.com, but I also want to have a forum for this domain: https://forum.example.com. How can I host the forum and point it to the above subdomain within the droplet with Ghost?

Hi there,

What you could do is set up a separate Nginx server block for your subdomain name. Then create an A record for your subdomain name to point your Droplet’s IP address.

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:
