I'm writing a bot that GETs a specific post from a category on my forum, and this category is only accessable by admins. Only problem is, GETting that post always returns a 401 Not Authorized response, because it's not open to users.
I've tried using auth=(username, password), Authorization: Bearer, even sending it in the GET params, but they all just return 401.
Any way of doing this?
Honestly I can't imagine why this would be the case. In our experience NodeBB has been fairly stable in terms of memory usage (it will creep up over time, although this is mainly due to post cache and such)...
What does your ACP dashboard show, are you seeing many visits from spiders? Do you have lots of topics but low user counts?
