Two different Discourse sites on one droplet

Posted August 13, 2014 2.7k views


I’m fairly new to digital ocean and a little confused about using a single droplet for multiple websites. I have a current droplet running one site with Discourse ( installed and working properly. I would now like to add another domain to the same droplet and install another discourse forum for the new site.

Would this be possible? How would I go upon setting this up? Any suggestions would be appreciates. Imagine I’m a complete n00b when it comes to server setup and being able to work my way around it. Just need some guidance. Thanks!

It’s definitely possible. How did you originally install Discourse? If you used their docker guide, you should check out their instructions on setting up a multisite installation. There are also instructions for non-docker installs, but that is no longer the recommended way to install Discourse.

Awesome! I’m going to try this out. Thanks!
