Install Discourse in Under 30 MinutesJeff Atwood April 17, 2014
As we edge closer and closer to Discourse 1.0 – which should happen in the next two months – we continue to improve our install story.
A few key things came together recently:
- Today’s release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Server
- Our Docker container one-click upgrade process is fully tested
- Official 1GB RAM minimum support
Which means you can now install Discourse on a cloud server in under 30 minutes with absolutely zero knowledge of Ruby, Rails, or Linux Shell.
Why, it’s almost … easy?

If you were waiting to install or play with Discourse until things were “final”, now is as good a time as any. We will of course continue to polish until 1.0, but all the essential elements are in place.
Give our 30 minute cloud install a try. We even have a promo code to get you started – enter DEPLOY2DO at Digital Ocean for $10 credit to cover your first month.*
