Well, damn. Didnt know that.
Okay, Thanks for your phenomenal help, @pichalite.
Gonna mess around with this proxying and nginx a bit now that everything is moving forward again.
I'm looking to use Azure CosmosDB mongoDB API with more than 10GB, so I need a shard key to get unlimited storage. Is there anything I have to do with NodeBB for the shard key?
Also, I couldn't find this anywhere and have no forum experience, but excluding media, how much storage does a moderate forum take up?
