Has anyone successfully installed NodeBB onto a non LTS version of Ubuntu? This is a Hail-Mary before I revert my 17.04 to the 16.04 LTS. Any insight will be appreciated.
It should be fine. As long as the Node.js version is correct everything should work.
@pitaj my concern is with mongo. Some mongo packages are not supported on 17.04.
As its documented here.
The best way to find out is to try it. NodeBB should work with all newer Mongo versions but if not let us know.
@pitaj I can confirm that mongo only supports 64-bit LTS versions of ubuntu. Some (crucial) packages like mongod are not supported on non LTS versions.
@countach just because it's not supported doesn't mean it won't work
@pitaj Yes true, I tried installing mongo onto my 17.04. The installation was successful but some packages did not work (were not supported).
