Hello @michaelwade

We have articles on How to install Discourse, I’ll recommend you to check them. The process is explained in detail and if you run into any issues you can share them here with the community.

Discourse is also available as a one-click installation app in our marketplace platform which you can check here:

Hi @michaelwade,

How are you trying to install Discourse? Have you pointed your Domain to your Droplet, do you have a WebSerivce like Nginx or Apache, and have you configured your domain there?

Can you please provide us with the article you are following to install Discourse or the steps you’ve taken?
