Discourse is the next-next-generation community forum platform. Discourse has a thoroughly modern design and is written in JavaScript. Page loads are very fast and new content is loaded as the user scrolls down the page. Discourse allows you to create categories, tag posts, manage notifications, create user profiles, and includes features to let communities govern themselves by voting out trolls and spammers. Discourse is built for mobile from the ground up and support high-res devices.


Why use the Bitnami Discourse Stack?

Bitnami makes it easy to run Discourse in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami Discourse Stack is:

  • Up-to-date

    We track every release of Discourse and update our stack shortly after it's released.

  • Secure

    If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of Discourse as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.

  • Consistent

    With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying Discourse or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.

With the Bitnami Discourse Stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

    Thanks for your review. We don't provide updated stacks for beta versions right away. However, we do offer the latest stable versions as soon as they are available.

    Initial install works but hostname fails

    by Simon Donaldson on

    Installed Bitnami Discourse to AWS via the marketplace and it works fine. I then tried to point it to my custom domain and then all emails etc break. The `--machine-hostname URL` feature doesn't work and all my attempts to reach out to bitnami have been unsuccessful. Don't waste your time with this image - install it yourself from scratch.
