Solved Can NodeBB installed on a PHP server?


  • Hi,
    I run a PHP server with Apache and Plesk panel.

    NodeBB can be installed in a PHP, Apache server managed by a control panel?
    If yes how?


  • @ocisp87 you'd install it the same way as is recommended, minus the nodeJS install as this already exists as part of the Plesk installation.

    You should also note that Plesk by default uses Apache to proxy requests to NGINX, so for the one domain you want to use NodeBB on, you need to ideally disable Apache on that one only. This enables you to use NGINX which is the preferred web server for NodeBB (certainly possible with Apache, but easier with NGINX).

    Plesk runs domains in isolated environments, so provided you use a dedicated domain, you won't screw anything up.


  • @ocisp87 yes, it can. Plesk comes preinstalled with nodeJS although you will need to install mongoDB manually.


  • @phenomlab hum... I have MariaDB.. MondoDB never used...
    The issue is that I'm not sure of the procedure for install NodeBB on Plesk.

    I suppose should be done by SSH but my doubt is give some SSH command that can compromise the server. Actually I use Flarum that looks more easy to install with composer.

    I want try NodeBB but no idea on how to move without a risk to broke the server managed by Plesk with all my website active on it 😄
