NodeBB is designed to work best under a virtual private server. Using a traditional hosting service is not recommended as they do not have the capabilities to power NodeBB effectively.
The code and instructions can be found here at our project repository
Full instructions can be found in our Documentation Portal
We recommend DigitalOcean to host your NodeBB, you'll get a month free just by registering with this link. You can also try applying the 10TOSHIP coupon to get another two months free, and as an added bonus, you'll be helping us out too!
Thank you for your interest in NodeBB!

Have you tried on different computers / browsers?
Just got it working. Or seems to be. Been stable for a bit now and the admin page is back.
Had to replace the URL of the site, with localhost:localport
@wayne-workman that is actually a very good idea that we can also use...
We do sometimes give people 1 week or 2 weeks "temporary" bans, which would look better if not tagged as "banned", so it is more obvious for all the users...
it would be good to have options such as "inactive" , "frozen" , "penalized" etc.
Short of using OAuth2, you could write your own app component to tie NodeBB into MySQL. One of the issues is that MySQL is a generic database so the format of your authentication easily won't match in some obvious way, so needs a customer connectors no matter what. Just adding another DB source for authentication would not solve your problem. It would have to be something that connects to your database and has the ability to understand your schema and has the ability to store all necessary additional schema changes there.
@pasib -- sorry to hear about that! Yes, npm or yarn will sometimes clobber anything inside node_modules/. Never do anything in that directory as it is considered transient!
Look into npm link or yarn link, and develop your theme elsewhere. Then you can use those tools to "link" the theme into the node_modules/ folder, and it will be safe from deletion. Sometimes the link itself will be deleted, but that is trivial to put back in.
Category Notification is even better than what i tried to do, thanks for that. I know there is the Chat function but i was imagining something like a "Reply with PM" function in the Reply dropdown, guess that does not exist or is there a plugin for that as well?
@PitaJ Thank you!
If I use /me it doesn't work - /me/doesn't work as well. It does not point to the own user profile.
Only a reference to a sub-page as mentioned by @PitaJ works.
/me/bookmarks works and points to the own bookmarks.
@levy318 said in XMAPP:
Is it possible to install NodeBB site on XAMPP?
No, but not because it is Apache. XMAPP is a platform for PHP and Perl. NodeBB is written in NodeJS. No language can run on another like that. XMAPP can only run Perl or PHP applications. NodeBB will work with Apache, but makes no sense. It'll run on Windows, but that makes no sense either - slow and licensing problems.
Bottom line, there is no situation where this question should come up.
That said, can NodeBB run on Windows? Of course, no problem. You just install it there. It's a terrible idea, but it will absolutely work. XMAPP is completely unnecessary. Just don't install XMAPP or just completely ignore it and don't start it up, and you'll be fine.
