Professional Discourse Setup Service

Professional Discourse Setup Service

I provide 3 different packages of Discourse installation, configuration and maintenance services.

Notice: default CentOS/RHEL installation on some VPS vendor have problem with Docker/Discourse. Read this for further detail. I’ll take this care for you if you chose my service.

Packages

Starter – US$ 49.00, one time job

What you provide

  • A remote accessible Linux server that meets the Discourse requirement.
  • No need to have Docker installed, I will handle it.
  • Necessary information
    • Server root password.
    • Domain name to host Discourse.
    • Email information including SMTP server address/port, SMTP username/password etc.

What you get

  • Docker installed and configured.
  • Discourse installed and running. You need to finish forum customization(site title, admin name etc.) by yourself for your own taste.

Advanced – US$ 99.00, one time job

What you provide

  • Same information as in starter package.
  • Other advanced setup information, if you require them. Such as Let’s Encrypt SSL, CDN acceleration, AWS S3 file storage. You need to have required service available. If they are not free, you need to pay for them by yourself.

Premium – US$ 149.00, one time job

What you provide

  • No pre-installed server required. No email service required.
  • Provide access to your existing VPS/cloud account, I will create the server and handle Linux installation and configuration. Or I can create VPS/cloud account for you if you don’t have one.
  • Desired Domain name (must be available). I will register and setup DNS and email service.
  • VPS/domain/email registration fee is not included in the package, as you need to fill in your own credit card information to make payment. I can’t use my card to pay for them.

What you get

  • Account information of VPS/cloud vendor, server, domain, email etc. will be handled over to you. You need to change all the passwords for security reasons.
  • Linux server setup and configured.
  • Docker installed and configured.
  • Domain name registered and configured.
  • Email service registered and configured.
  • Discourse installed and running. You need to finish forum customization(site title, admin name etc.) by yourself for your own taste

 

Long term maintenance – US$ 400.00/month, negotiable according to workload

If you don’t have a system admin, I can also do that for you. I’ll keep your server in good state, software are up-to-date, logs are examined etc. etc.

Payment

No upfront payment. Except VPS/domain/email registration fee in Premium package as you don’t pay them to me, they are paid to service vendors.

After my job is done, you can access the forum web site. You can make payment once you think the job meets our agreement.
