Did you even read what I said? I wasn't saying that WordPress is worse than NodeBB or anything like that. I said that it's nonsensical to expect to be able to move from forum software with categories, topics, posts, replies, chats, etc to a blog system which doesn't even have built-in comments AFAIK.
@Bri said in What are the system requirements for running an offsite installation?:
I really don't know about that 512MB of ram, It might run fine on that small amount, but I was running out of memory on the npm install alone.
I was running my forum pretty well on the 512MB Digital Ocean box. It actually ran well beyond about 25 503 errors a day from nodeBB: https://community.nodebb.org/topic/9109/503-temporarily-unavailable-due-to-excessive-load
