Those who haven't cast their votes yet, now we have entered the last week of the voting.
Simply, go to this link, and select NodeBB as Best Forum Software.
I apologize for not searching for something on this topic (if it exists) before posting, but I'm a little pressed for time at the moment.
I have NodeBB installed and running on an Ubunto VM but it's on a physical system that I use for development and frequent daily use and it gets rebooted for updates, etc. pretty frequently. I'm planning to move this to a separate machine, but I want to use a different hypervisor than the one I am currently using to run the Ubuntu VM. The easiest way for me to accomplish this is to install a fresh copy of Ubuntu on a new VM on the new hypervisor on the new physical machine. So what are the appropriate steps to take to copy the nodeBB instance I have to a new machine (including plugins and configuration, if possible)?
If this is documented, a link to the documentation will suffice. Thanks in advance for your answers.
@Shaun Sorry we missed this
Just copy the .rdb file from one machine to the next. Make sure redis is offline on the new machine, or else when you restart Redis, it'll just overwrite the db on-disk.
Also the stuff in
public/uploads, if any (user avatars, etc)
You'll also need to run
./nodebb setup on the new machine, to install the dependencies and auto-create a config file.
