As long as Lightsail doesn't limit the capabilities of their VPS, I don't see why it would be any different from a normal install on Ubuntu.
yeah, it's identical. LightSail ends up being exactly like a DO or Vultr.
We are trying to set up a NodeBB instance on Heroku, and connect it to an existing Mongo database. It's not going ever to be an incredibly high traffic site so this is the simplest way to go.
When I get to the step described in the documentation,
node app --setup
I get an error:
module.js:328 throw err; ^ Error: Cannot find module 'nconf' at Function.Module._resolveFilename (module.js:326:15) at Function.Module._load (module.js:277:25) at Module.require (module.js:354:17) at require (internal/module.js:12:17) at Object.<anonymous> (/home/roger/Projects/rpa-nodebb/app.js:28:13) at Module._compile (module.js:410:26) at Object.Module._extensions..js (module.js:417:10) at Module.load (module.js:344:32) at Function.Module._load (module.js:301:12) at Function.Module.runMain (module.js:442:10)
@pitaj Thanks. I actually figured that part out. I managed to get it to build on heroku by removing package.json from .gitignore and pushing, but I could not access the online installation page (:4567), Heroku said the app failed to connect to $PORT within 60 seconds.
After that I tried removing config.js from .gitignore, but that hasn't worked either.
