@pitaj Also confirmed. I built a NodeBB instance for someone this morning and used the exact same process described here.
Need help with domain / nodebb installation
I want to install NodeBB forum at my site.
I have a question about this.
At installation guides all says that need install nodeBB to opt/...
But how about domain dir?
Forum will be not in domain directory (public_html) ?
I worked with multiple forums (phpbb / xenforo / vbulletin) but i cant understand how nodeBB need to be installed.
Help me please.
I use apache and nginx. (front/backend).
NodeBB works differently from other forums. It has it's own web server, it doesn't rely on Apache + PHP.
I suggest you use our docs if possible:
@pitaj but how about domain folders?they will be empty? how to bind it.
In the documentation I linked, at the end it talks about reverse proxying with nginx. I don't know what donation folders are, but if you're taking about Apache virtual servers, I'm pretty sure reverse proxying has nothing to do with that.
@pitaj And i need to delete DOMAIN folder ? and do proxy?
I don't know if you need to get rid of the domain folder, but you do need to set up the reverse proxy.
