No, I did not. It worked after I did so. Somehow I missed that obvious section...
./nodebb start -> Starting NodeBB | No forum to be found?
Hello, I am trying to install NodeBB onto my Ubuntu 16.04 server.
I am using AWS with a Ubuntu 16.04 AMI and have installed Node.js and MongoDB on Nginx
When I type ./nodebb start to start NodeBB, it says
But When I go to my url and port number, the site cannot be reached.
I am stuck, help please!
Here is a copy of my config.json file
And this is the output when I type ./nodebb log :
@teh_g I hadn't before. I didn't realize that we needed to set up a proxy to display the forum publically.
Things are working now, thank you.
For future reference: I set up a bind address and made the url the same as the bind address (including http://).
This link helped me a lot : https://community.nodebb.org/topic/6840/no-ip-binding-possible-glooming-on-0-0-0-0
@rrt No problem. It might be worth setting up the reverse proxy, it offers some performance benefits and allows you to use SSL for your site (which please do since passwords get entered to login).
Take a look at the docs for config instructions: https://docs.nodebb.org/configuring/proxies/nginx/
