@mstan — sorry that you haven't received a response.
NodeBB doesn't save the Mongo database anywhere specific on the file system, it would be wherever the insulted MongoDB install saves it's data.
Hi!it's not perfect
I have error when I try to install NodeBB on CentOS.
Probably I'm doing smth wrong.
Where can I find video guide how to do that?
I wrote this guide for 1.4.
During the install the latest version of nodejs is 8
Do not install nodejs 8
The docs work without a problem. it depends what you want to do exactly?
The docs lack a bit for someone with no experience.
what do they lack? one can copy and paste those commands and they will work. its the configuration that can be a bit tricky. for example, having the DB separate to the forum and maybe the reverse proxy (or implementing security/SSL cert). Or creating it as a service on centos 7
also, your tutorial on mongodb has an error in it... there is no /etc/init.d/mongod in v3.x so adding the extra option is invalid.
It was there when that guide was wrote. I always revert the VM to pre install state and follow my own instructions before posting a guide.
@Adam-Poniatowski Which page is that? We can get it resolved on the docs...
Oh I meant @JaredBusch tutorial, it is just the one point that is (sort of) obsolete, but one can add that to the mongod.conf file. The nodebb docs is fine. The only thing I can suggest, is to note down, that it is assumed that selinux is either permissive or disabled. in https://nodebb.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installing/os/centos.html
And maybe add @JaredBusch semanage commands there as well
@Shard Centos 7.3, it is full systemd, hence mongod does not install/copy anything into that folder. one can still use it, but its just a drag at this point. Hacking a systemd system into a systemv... I got accustomed to the change.
