  • @SANTOSH-KUMAR What was wrong with the topic you made previously? 😆



  • I am not getting any reply so i made new one.Pal please help just see the above code.Do i making any mistake



  • @SANTOSH-KUMAR Creating a new topic won't magically get more people replying to it. It still appears under Unread like all the others.

    Yes. I'm seeing a few mistakes. nano is a ubuntu command, not an installable package. You're missing nodejs-legacy and npm. It's ./nodebb setup although node app -setup should also work. You are in the wrong folder when running the setup. Note you ran mkdir mynodebb followed by git clone mynodebb, this created another mynodebb folder inside mynodebb.

    I recommend you follow the official documentation found here and doing each step carefully and making sure you have no errors at each step. The errors tell you the issue. It may seem daunting, but you get used to it.



  • I am doing a fresh install of vps do i need any additional thing to install.Do i need to install node.js or this code have already node js installation
    $ sudo apt-get install git nodejs nodejs-legacy npm redis-server imagemagick



  • This is the error i got
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    Package imagemagick is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package 'imagemagick' has no installation candidate
    root@server:~#



  • @SANTOSH-KUMAR Just do what's in the docs, there's no additional steps. For the imagemagick error, run sudo apt-get update then carry on as normal.



  • another error
    root@server:~# sudo apt-get install git nodejs nodejs-legacy npm redis-server im
    agemagick

    E: Unable to locate package nodejs-legacy



  • @SANTOSH-KUMAR Having re-read your first post. Ubuntu 12.04 does't have a nodejs-legacy package. And the nodejs package available is too old. Before you go too far into this install, I'd suggest running Ubuntu 14.04 instead, it's more up to date. If you're on Digital Ocean, select 14.04 Ubuntu instead of 12.04. 👍

    Then do the install, you shouldn't have a problem then.



  • @a_5mith Can nodebb and node js support
    ubuntu 14.04 x86 minimal



  • @SANTOSH-KUMAR I run 14.04 on one live site and two development servers, it works fine. 👍 I recommend you run 14.04.



  • @a_5mith also but how it worked yesterday on ubuntu 12.04.All installed correctly



  • @SANTOSH-KUMAR That would be one of life's mysteries. 😆 Trust me, it would be beneficial for you to run Ubuntu 14.04, then follow the guides. 👍



  • i tried
    @a_5mith
    sudo apt-get install git nodejs nodejs-legacy npm redis-server imagemagick
    then result is
    -bash: sudo: command not found
    so tried
    sudo apt-get update
    again result is
    -bash: sudo: command not found


  • Admin

    If it says command not found, then sudo is not installed.



  • how to install it


  • Admin

    @SANTO007 Have you tried searching for that error message online?
