Hostgator should give you a command line. If they don't, then they will not work for NodeBB. Again, we recommend DigitalOcean to host your NodeBB, you'll get a month free just by registering with this link.
Help needed, first taste on nodebb and deploying an application
Before this, I had a period of ruby on rails practice. So, I think I can understand how an Application and Database work together, IMAO.
Back to nodebb, I have done eveything well/correct and have run my nodebb forum as expected.
I never used redis before, so I customized the database configuration followed by the documentation. I am sure everything is going correct, of course with some faults fixed. Since the Application running, I can see the initial post and the user admin which were created in the process of setup is ready to work.
The question is: Where is the data in my mongoDB? The intial post, the user admin and his password. I see nothing on the database, e.g.
Any responses are grateful.
Thanks a lot.
