Heroku also has a free tier and it is the easiest setup I've found.
NodeBB and other web sites on the server
I have server, running Webmin and few PHP sites, Apache, PHP7 ,Ubuntu. Can I add NodeBB, or it needs separate server?
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!
Thanks, but the question was not about shared hosting. Talking about 2GB VPS that is running other PHP sites and Webmin.
Then yes, there should be no problem if the requisite dependencies are installed
Web sites I have use Apache but from what i can see NodeBB uses Nginx, would it matter do I need any other settings?
@Mirko you can reverse proxy NodeBB through apache. The suggested solution is to use nginx, but if you already have a system using apache, you can use that instead.
