@a_5mith are you running nodebb on port 80, without that you would need to pass the nodebb port 4567 for the nginx proxy to work, wouldn't it?
Yes. that is correct. We pass in the port (or rather, we specify the proxy_pass value directly
I need some advice in connecting small sails.js app with nodeBB. In my sails.js application I need to get current logged user. I set sails.js session id key to express.sid (as in nodeBB), and configured it to use nodeBB collection as session storage. Then I can query for user id by session id (also from nodeBB storage). It is almost what I need to, but I can't get through some problems
nodebb and sails app have to be on same domain
when user visits sails app first, then nodeBB sets another session id and sessions are different on both apps
when user logs in nodeBB, gets new session id and also, sessions are different on both apps
Maybe OAuth is best way to go?
PS. Thanks for nodeBB, great work!
