Me and a few other people have made an online game with an online authentication system and want to know if there is any way to use user accounts and their profile pages that have already been created to play the game as profiles to post on a nodebb forum.
To clarify, this is a question about seamlessly replacing the default nodebb registration and user profile system or hooking a replacement - though it would be preferable if features such as groups continued to work after having done so, we are not fussed about the forum fully working so long as users can start topics and use all the normal forum features. It would also be a big plus if it could do things like share sessions, so that you do not have to log in twice. As an example, Bethesda's community pages, which use nodebb, can do this.
I'd be greatful for any pointers or advice the community can give. I know this is quite an advanced question. Thank you!
make sure you have port 80 and/or 443 open on your firewall. I see 80 is open (I get the "Welcome to Nginx" message). So now you need to make a few changes in your nginx config for it to redirect 4567 to your site on 80/443 (http/https), as currently it is set to the nginx page.
The docs has a config you can use, just make the changes like Pitaj has suggested and for https, you will need a certificate. Lets-Encrypt is free
**Edit to add: Don't forget to restart nginx to use the new config
