I am in beijing, and I can't access nodebb website or community without shadowsocks, I think maybe the China GFW block it. If nodebb need more people to use it. This problem should be solved, maybe build a mirror website?
I know that @scottalanmiller is running a relatively high traffic forum on nodebb.
A lot depends on various factors like if you're running a CDN, what plugins you're running, and any other processes running on the node.
On my setup, I was running a cluster of three, with a gocamo server, along with redis (for session storage) and mongo, along with (at the time) mysql.
Solved! Well, Uberspace ...
Hope that will help other users to run NodeBB with Uberspace. The problem was the run-file I used for the daemon.
This is my new code. ([USER]/etc/[YOUR-SERVICE]/run
In the official NodeBB documentation the preffered method to start is ./nodebb start.
Don't follow third party tutorials in this case ... NodeBB seems unstable with other methods to start.
I will test it further, but for now it seems to work pretty well.
