Me and a few other people have made an online game with an online authentication system and want to know if there is any way to use user accounts and their profile pages that have already been created to play the game as profiles to post on a nodebb forum.
To clarify, this is a question about seamlessly replacing the default nodebb registration and user profile system or hooking a replacement - though it would be preferable if features such as groups continued to work after having done so, we are not fussed about the forum fully working so long as users can start topics and use all the normal forum features. It would also be a big plus if it could do things like share sessions, so that you do not have to log in twice. As an example, Bethesda's community pages, which use nodebb, can do this.
I'd be greatful for any pointers or advice the community can give. I know this is quite an advanced question. Thank you!

and everything seemed to go smoothly, I started the app using Heroku, and the first page I get is:
instead of the usual homepage, and it keeps telling me this message:
I tried reading through others who had similar issues but failed to find what is wrong with my setup, and not really sure where to start looking as i am new to this. I'd appreciate any help i can get 🙂 thanks for your time
What's your overall goal? I have a feeling that you are giving AWS way more money than you should already. If the goal is to go big without wasting money, this isn't the approach. Unless you are doing something in the billion hits a month range, I don't think that this approach can be cost effective at all.
So if you want to give AWS money just for fun, then you might as well give more. If you want to be cost effective, then setting yourself up for scaling will require more scale than will ever be practically needed.
