As long as Lightsail doesn't limit the capabilities of their VPS, I don't see why it would be any different from a normal install on Ubuntu.
yeah, it's identical. LightSail ends up being exactly like a DO or Vultr.
First of all i want to say thanks to the nodebb team for creating such an amazing forum. i really appropriate the effort. love you guys..
OK now coming to the point.
My question is simple is there any special requirement for #nodebb hosting cuz i have hosting and domain i am hosting website on it build with Drupal PHP. is there some kind of special requirements for node.js application?
Please help me with this. and i am beginner with node.js so please in a little detail thanks.
You need NodeJS installed, which requires a linux box of some sort.
The hosting you're using for your current installation won't work unfortunately, but all hope is not lost.
You need a host that can natively support Node.js, which means you're going to have to look for some kind of VPS supplier. VPSDime.com do some incredibly cheap yet powerful servers!
If you would prefer a more managed solution, I suggest Digital Ocean. Their walkthrough's are incredibly insightful, and this tutorial explains every little detail.
Don't even try looking for a free supplier - almost every free Node.js host I've ever found hasn't been the standard I needed it to be!
(Alternatively, if you send me a PM, I'll tell you exactly what to buy, and I'll set you up for free )
if you want to use Docker: https://github.com/Jenkler/docker
My setup uses nodejs + mongodb
You could either install node.js into your box ( if possible ) and accommodate NodeBB into it. Or, get a new VPS, install NodeBB on it with meeting server requirements. Link it to your choice of sub domain.
