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.
@evoixmr Arch not just OS Arch is idea!
As others have pointed out, we test and build NodeBB against Ubuntu, so that may be the "best" OS, but that's definitely in quotation marks
Ubuntu has lot of support as well.
Windows ME, actually
@bri Amateur, I run NodeBB on DOS 6
@julian psh, you haven’t lived if not running NodeBB on CP/M.
Would not recommend.
In this time I have run Nodebb on /Debian8/Arch/Ubuntu16/ and all runs perfect especially I liked work on arch cuz in arch very small load on ram and nodebb work faster/ but I have problem with plugin , they disappear))) when I install new plugin another plugin was lost and delete himself/ I have this problem on arch and Debian 8 / and only on Ubuntu 16 all work perfect, but Ubuntu have many processes on System wich load common system/
