Installing Discourse to a droplet running Wordpress

March 25, 2015 1.8k views


I’ve a wordpress instillation on a droplet (multisite configuration and on Apache server) and I’d like to add Discourse.

So my site is and hosts my blog. I want Discourse on

I know there’s a Docker instillation available but I imagine installing that would mess my existing Wordpress instillation.

Any ideas on how I’d go about adding Discourse to my droplet?

Hi! I went into detail on how to do this in this previous question.. Take a look there for more information.

You’ll need to set up Discourse to run behind a reverse proxy like Nginx to direct requests between WordPress and Discourse. In particular take a look at the Nginx configuration I provided here.
