To install Discourse on Bluehost, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to your Bluehost account and go to your cPanel.
  2. Under the "Website" section, click on "Install WordPress".
  3. On the WordPress installation page, choose the domain where you want to install Discourse.
  4. Fill in the required details for your WordPress installation, including the site name and description.
  5. Make sure to choose a strong username and password for your WordPress admin account.
  6. Click on the "Install" button to begin the installation process.


Once WordPress is installed, you can proceed with the Discourse installation:

  1. Access your WordPress dashboard by going to "yourdomain.com/wp-admin" and log in using the admin credentials you created during the installation.
  2. In the WordPress dashboard, go to "Plugins" > "Add New" and search for "Discourse".
  3. Look for the "WP Discourse" plugin and click on "Install Now". Then, activate the plugin.


Now that the plugin is installed, you need to configure it:

  1. In the WordPress dashboard, go to "Settings" > "Discourse".
  2. Enter your Discourse forum URL and the Discourse API key. You can obtain the API key by logging in to your Discourse admin panel and going to "Admin" > "API".
  3. Adjust the remaining settings based on your preferences, such as default category, publishing method, and other options.
  4. Save the settings.


At this point, you should have successfully installed and configured Discourse on your Bluehost account. You can now start using Discourse as a forum or community platform.
