The Bitnami Discourse Stack provides a one-click install solution for Discourse. Download installers and virtual machines, or run your own Discourse server in the cloud.

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.

  1. Bitnami Discourse 5

    Discourse as your sites commenting system

    by Matija Grcic on

    I've downloaded Bitnami Discourse for Azure https://bitnami.com/stack/discourse/cloud/azure and it was great fun to deploy it, configure it and make it my default blog commenting system. Documentation for Discourse as well for every Bitnami app is up to date and precise https://wiki.bitnami.com/Applications/BitNami_Discourse. I've wrote a blog post about my experience at http://webstackoflove.com/discourse-comments-for-ghost-on-windows-azure-vm/. Thanks Bitnami.

  2. Bitnami Discourse 5

    So easy to use!

    by Florent Segouin on

    Discourse was my very first stack I downloaded here from Bitnami. Back then I was afraid of setting up Discourse by myself since it was not written in an easy way in their GitHub repo. Then I discovered Bitnami and I really fell in love with their so-easy-to-use stacks! In less than 15 mins my Discourse instance was up and running on my own server. I really love the fact that this stack won't interfere with any other app running on my server. I'm now using Discourse with my friends for a course project at my University and we all love using Discourse every day. Thank you guys!
