Take a look, if you are deploying NodeBB with MongoDB ever, or write any code for anything that touches it, be aware that you may be forced to open source anything and everything.
Solved Move MongoDB to clean NodeBB
Hello, I'm hosting my NodeBB on Digital Ocean and I want to move everything to an other database. We use MongoDB and we have a few problems. We don't know the MongoDB admin password/username.
Do you know a way to do this or is there a plugin that makes this easier to do?
Any help/advice is welcome and are there things we should do and don't do?
