I would suggest not to follow that tutorial. For some reason the tutorial clones NodeBB under /var/www which is not required.
Also you will end up using the master branch of NodeBB which is a development version and is likely to have bugs.
Trying to install everything strictly after the guide at https://docs.nodebb.org/installing/os/windows/ (yes, I am on windows), the installation step keeps throwing me into errors.
noteably the nodebb-plugin-emoji-android package just doesn't want to install, be that the version that it expected (run via
nodebb setup) or attempting to manually run
npm install [email protected] but fail.

Happy to hear any kind of suggestion! Would love to get this to work, looks really promising compared to other solutions I've seen so far.
