Your forum may work, but has no security, anyone can login and delete/steal the database. You need to setup your redis so that it has a password, and that it restricts access to localhost.
@yariplus thank you so much.
Decided to give the RSS feed a try. Installation whet fine, however regardless of the RSS feed address, I am getting the following error message:
"getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND query.yahooapis.com query.yahooapis.com:443"
I am synced to master, nodejs is 10.15.0 (lts), running on AWS linux.
Pinging the hostname works fine.
my /etc/hosts does contain localhost, as follows:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4 ::1 localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6
Any idea what I am doing wrong?
Yahoo message :

thank you @The-Worms I was going crazy trying to figure out what's wrong with my setup.
It seems that the plugin code needs a revision so it may store the username/password needed for yahoo authentication, as well as the new endpoint correct?
Is there another endpoint that does not require authentication?
@The-Worms and anyone else following this topic: the RSS plugin may be fixed. See this topic for howto: https://community.nodebb.org/topic/13540/changes-to-nodebb-plugin-rss-in-light-of-yql-shutdown
