NodeBB is designed to work best under a virtual private server. Using a traditional hosting service is not recommended as they do not have the capabilities to power NodeBB effectively.
The code and instructions can be found here at our project repository
Full instructions can be found in our Documentation Portal

@MagicVish No, no. For the field Which database to use do not enter redis but enter 0. You already chose redis earlier in the setup. This field instructs NodeBB which redis database to populate and use. The databases start at 0 and increase incrementally. If this is your first and only redis database 0 is the answer.
