Yes, indeed, if you're looking to scale up to handle high concurrent user loads, scaling out horizontally is your best bet. We've got a client right now serving 700+ connections at the moment, and they're on four separate NodeBB instances. It's probably too much for what they need, but it's always nice to have more capacity than needed in case of spikes, etc.
User avatar upload problem - path
Hi guys, newbie here. I have installed NodeBB and have encountered a slight problem with uploading avatars - NodeBB is following the wrong path, likely because of an error I made installing the forum.
My server install was a one-click Ghost blog setup on DigitalOcean, from which I used the BurnAfterCompiling guide to install NodeBB. Most things went well; though I installed NodeBB in /forum/forum by accident. I simply moved the files into their parent folder.
However, this has caused a problem when I attempt to upload a user image; when I do so it appears to upload successfully. I checked the path to the image immediately after it was uploaded, and it is at /forum/uploads/profile/1-profileimg.jpg?1418895235162
When you navigate away from your profile page, the image appears broken. Checking the path to the image shows NodeBB is trying to access: /forum/forum/uploads/profile/1-profileimg.jpg
Obviously, NodeBB is attempting to access the /forum/forum/ path defined during install, but I'm lost as to where I could edit that to resolve the problem.
I'm a complete newbie to Node, but have no problem getting my hands dirty.
