Install Discourse in Under 30 Minutes
A few key things came together recently:
- The official release of Discourse 1.0, with 1 GB RAM minimum support
- The release of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS server previously followed by 14.04
- Our Docker container one-click upgrade process is fully tested, and Docker has reached V1.0
Which means you can now install the latest version of Discourse on a cloud server in under 30 minutes with absolutely zero knowledge of Ruby, Rails, or Linux Shell.
Why, it's almost … easy?
Props to @discourse for an unusually smooth setup with @digitalocean. Excellent instructions!

Discourse is now officially well beyond version 1.0, so it's a great time to join the ecosystem.
