I upload all the nodebb files to my hosting server subdomain folder. after upload when I go to example.nodebb/forum I see a blank page.
my server is mariaDB.
how i find terminal in cpanel
So, the problem here is that you are using a PHP server with MariaDB. This isn't a PHP application and doesn't use MariaDB. This isn't related to being easy, it's related to your host being a host for a very specific different kind of product.
cPanel actually makes WordPress far harder than it should be. WordPress is easier than you are used to. So for just being easy, both NodeBB and WordPress are easier than you are thinking. But you've basically gotten a host based on them doing the very specific needs of WordPress or have been selecting products in the past that match that host. NodeBB and MongoDB are totally different products and those technologies can't run these. I own a WordPress hosting company and can tell you that cPanel is so much more work than it needs to be. We use a single command to install WordPress and do all setup, we don't even have to download anything, it's so ridiculously fast and easy. cPanel takes as long to log into as a full install should take.
Similar to buying MacOS software and trying to install on Windows. It's just the wrong platform for that software.
