Rather than knowing whether it's possible or not, I'd like to know how to do it. Do you have any idea how to do it using forem selfhost?

There is a reason it is called as self host, anyways here it goes again:

  1. In your setup.yml => use "@" as subdomain
  2. Redeploy to digital ocean
  3. Update your DNS A record to "@" and "IP"
  4. While accessing your website => don't use www in the URL

That's it.


If you still have issue, I wont be much of help. You should contact the Forem team.

I'm asking because you already said this, I tried it and it didn't work.

If the #help tag is not for asking help about these things kindly let me know so I move to more appropriate channels.

Hey, if my language sounded rude, reconsider it. I'm not a member of Forem and I'm helping the new community members launch their Forem on my free time.

This Forem.dev is meant to help community builders. And also the best place to get help.

I tried to help my best out of my time. I'm done with it.
