Take a look, if you are deploying NodeBB with MongoDB ever, or write any code for anything that touches it, be aware that you may be forced to open source anything and everything.
How to take full backup of NodeBB
I am using Digital Ocean VPS. As we play with plugin, one thing or other gets broken. Is there any way/command to take full backup of NodeBB which can be restored ?
Take a snapshot using your digital ocean account, switch it off in your dashboard, then snapshot. Alternatively, all plugins can be removed, even if it breaks your site. The snapshot is only valid on that droplet, so if you destroy it your snapshot goes with it.
My friend has the server. I took VPS from him. Is it possible through any command on NodeBB ACP ? Thanks for the reply.
Not really -- as mentioned prior, the reason this is impossible is because the redis database doesn't usually live in a place that is readable by NodeBB.
There are ways to dump Redis data into JSON, so all is not lost.............
