How the site works.. an overview


#1

How this site works.

Also https certificate is issued by Let’s Encrypt.

And yes, I used the linux version of ms paint (kolourpaint4) to draw this. :watermelon:

EDIT: This is outdated now :yum:


#2

Have you tried something like Digital Ocean for this?


#3

Why yes. Digital Ocean was my first choice. But OVH was cheaper. Eventually we’ll move it to DO or Google Cloud.


#4

Why buy a server, for hosting just a forum and a website??!!!
I wonder
Pardon me if I’m wrong


#5

Because it’s easier to maintain, deploy and more secure.

Also the discourse forum uses quite a bit of resources.
