Big problems



  • I got many problems with nodebb.
    Firstly it wont stay online all the time, sometimes it just goes offline randomly. I can only get it online by running it in dev mode.
    I cant access the forum with my domain name only by the ip.
    I cant remove the port from the url even after I followed the instructions on how to proxy it with apache.
    What the actual fuck is this? why not make a god damn forum that you can upload with FTP to the apache directory and use MySQL like a normal site? Im getting so frustrated from this. I have tried to fix it the last 5 hours. Btw there are no errors. it just dont work correctly.



  • I had issues myself especially with the getting it to work with the domain name and not having the port number showing either. I spent way more than 5 hours working on it too. I spent atleast 3 hours a day for close to a week. Yes it would be nice if the forum software was more user friendly for non techie types (which I am techie to a point) but then I found a wonderful managed host that has a custom Ubuntu install that installs just the bare minimum and in the custom install is a one click installer for NodeBB and several other scripts that are supposedly harder to install and no problems at all. Wish you the best of luck and hope you get your issues resolved.



  • @Ernest-L.-Defoe Thanks for the answer. Well I use a VPS so everything needs to be done manually, no one click installs here :P

    You mean like a normal site 10 years ago? Node and MongoDB are miles better than this crap PHP and MySQL. If you can't even set up a proxy following one of million online guides then seriously, give up development or go back to your 'normal' sites lol

    This setup is simple. Don't blame your lack of knowledge as a failure of this platform.

    The instructions are fairly clear, but if you need even more help, here is a guide I wrote.



  • @nodeath if you want actual help drop me a PM.
