We are running our own instance of discourse.
Available at https://discourse.theembassy.be
It is a VM hosted on a dedicated server from OVH SoYouStart, following users have access to the server:
- Tom Behets (email@example.com)
- Wouter Vandenneucker (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Bart Derudder (?)
- FIll in your name and email
Discourse uses a docker based installer. It appends the plugins to the docker image, sets up an SSL cert, minimizes all js and css, and then spins up the container
Following plugins are installed:
The Discourse docker does not provide support for outgoing email. I tried to set it up using Postfix on the Docker Host but without success. In the end, I registered a Sparkpost account to handle outgoing emails. We're on the free plan with 750 emails per day and 15k emails per month. It is registered on my (wouter) personal email though.
Currently we don't have an automated backup system.
Backups are done manually from within discourse (files & db)
The site is accessible over SSL. The SSL Cert is automatically generated by the installation script of Discourse. I'm unsure whether it also does auto updating.Back to top
