Is it possible to install this on FreeBSD?
@LiQuiFY It's not officially supported. But this may offer some assistance. As long as FreeBSD can run node.js, you should have no problem setting up NodeBB.
Hope this helps.
@a_5mith Thank you.
I'm trying to install it now.
@a_5mith There is more to NodeBB than just node. I would be nice to see a FreeBSD, or simply BSD, guide somewhere.
I would advise using Nginx infront of it.
You can google NodeBB Nginx Config and you'll have one you can copy/paste.
Nginx will then be on port 80 and you can close 4567 on your FW.
@baris We did, but it still seems to want to compile something. Not sure, maybe it isn't bcrypt.
@pitaj No, i will try in few days.
We say by and large that NodeBB doesn't run on shared hosting, but that is an oversimplification. Most do not, since they are geared toward php applications that you drag and drop files into via sftp.
If your shared hosting provider gives you shell access to install programs (namely mongo and nodejs), then you should be fine.
Hope 0.5x will arrive soon. Thanks @a_5mith
