A custom server? We do that all the time unless "custom" means something I am unfamiliar with 😁
[Solved]NodeBB and MongoDB not playing nice on CentOS
So I installed NodeBB from the wiki tutorials for installing and setting up with Mongo and CentOS, (the default user access deets in config.json are wrong for mongo) but when I start it up I get a blank interface. None of the extra stuff is setup.
I also can't access the admin section even though I am the first and only user.
The only stuff I've changed is setup MongoDB running on a different port for security. And I setup those in the initial setup.
Also it still complains that it can not find convert - Did you install imagemagick?
[ezra@Kiwidev community]$ which convert
^ yes I do have it installed.
If I run ./nodebb upgrade I get:

I'm presuming its skipping setting up all that stuff because it believe it already exists. And my Mongo password IS set, the fact I can register as a user proves it (i think).
I think I found the problem, will make a pull request on GIthub.
It looks like the variables built to access MongoDB's username and password should be
But those are referenced elsewhere in the setup files. I'll have a go, but Im not exactly sure which values to edit. xD
@Ezra-Sharp unless you've already done so, it may be worth while opening an issue on github for this: https://github.com/designcreateplay/nodebb/issues
Opps, I had, but it turned out I was selecting the wrong database.
