Maybe it's an idea to place version info in the footer wich link to the blogpost. Something like this.
So it would be something like this.
I’m a student and I want to run a forum for me and my friends. But I can’t because I have no money. Any suggestions?
it is actually free if you host it yourself. you just need a domain name and hosting server...
You can check this topic as well:
The $5 droplets on DigitalOcean are more than capable of running a NodeBB. It can probably handle 50+ concurrent users with some minor tweaking, though don't take my word for it
Hi @julian , I would like to ask a follow up question here... any suggestion from you would be very helpful...
a few times a year -especially early May- we have far more than usual visit to our website (pls check the pic below), last year we had only 5 minutes long lost connection to the forum (the pages were showing "not found" error but forum wasn't down), but it was acceptable for us since it lasted only 5 minutes, however this year -since our forum is getting larger- we had two days long problem to access the forum, forum was there (never down) but we kept having "not found - you do not have permission to access this page" error when we click a link of a page in the forum, so we had to renew pages one or two times to view a page in the forum. What would be the best way to prevent this next years? Is there a temporary precaution we can take for a month only? Because current settings are enough for our normal traffic.
High traffic for us is that:
25.000+ unique visitor and 200.000+ total page view
We use Digital Ocean:
2 GB Memory / 50 GB Disk / NYC1 - Ubuntu NodeJS 8.10.0 on 18.04
Thanks, these should help; I will forward this to our technical team.
Heh, evidently I stand corrected about DO and NodeBB. Used DO stuff early on (but not for NodeBB). They then became very popular and I saw significant increases in cpu usage without any commensurate increases in load. Boosted a couple droplets up a notch. Didn't do much. Spun up a virgin node and saw cpu loads into 2.x to low 3.x's just idling on my ssh connection. I bailed to a different provider and have not checked in with them in years. Maybe a scale/infrastructure growing too fast issue?
In any case, good that you can get it sorted for minimal costs.
