best OS for NodeBB
Hi. I bought VPS and I'd like to install nodeBB.
What OS is the best?
I tried to install it on Debian but i had some errors.
I see a OS flamewar coming with this topic
Mine would be CentOS. Very stable OS and quite secure.
My NodeBB instance runs on Alpine Linux 3.5.2 inside a SmartOS lx zone...
Debian 7 is quite old. Try something more recent.
I do not run anything on Ubuntu except for my Unifi controller.
I use CentOS or Fedora for all production instances at clients.
It does not matter what Linux dist you use, but i prefer Container os (CoreOs) + Docker with Gentoo inside
For a general easy setup I can agree with pichalite.
However, with a little piece of brain you will be able to get nodeBB running on any OS.
https://www.archlinux.org/ = K.I.S.S.
Some say arch is for advance linux users only. Arch just like nodebb have the best online documentation.
