Yes that fixed the issue.
Again thank you for your support.
@arkoma Nah, you're missing some of the line breaks:
[Unit] Description=NodeBB Documentation=https://docs.nodebb.org After=system.slice multi-user.target mongod.service [Service] Type=simple User=nodebb StandardOutput=syslog StandardError=syslog SyslogIdentifier=nodebb WorkingDirectory=/path/to/nodebb ExecStart=/usr/bin/env node loader.js --no-silent --no-daemon Restart=always [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
Try a different browser? Which install guide are you using?
@julian I'm using this guide https://nodebb.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installing/os/ubuntu.html
I'm looking at it in Chrome on Linux Mint Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
I put in the line breaks
I notice that you don't have this line that I do
@arkoma It looks like nodebb defaults to running as production, unless you pass some other value to
NODE_ENV, so that line will have no effect.
Ok I think it's running. Now how do I look at it in my browser. haha
I have a AWS free tier instance
Your AWS instance has an IP address or maybe even a normal address. You can use that to connect on port
@pitaj Yeah, that's not working. Most likely I don't know what I'm doing, but it just times out.
This is what I have in the console
9/3 03:16:20  - info: NodeBB Ready 9/3 03:16:20  - info: Enabling 'trust proxy' 9/3 03:16:20  - info: NodeBB is now listening on: 0.0.0.0:4567
and it just hangs
I finally figured it out.
It's up and running at
Although I get a message saying "looks like your connection to nodebb was lost" hmm... I'm going to have to search for another thread related to that.
Fixed it. addresses didn't match. between my actual ip and the config.json file
