Run NodeBB on shared host uberspace



  • I'm trying to install NodeBB on a uberspace. I don't know what I'm doing wrong

    All I get is this:

    Does someone know whats going on? I'm new to node...



  • Did you setup Redis on your server already? Make sure it's updated to the latest version?



  • Redis is already setup on the server but it is the version 2.6.10...i can't update redis on my own, because i don't have the rights. is there maybe another solution? i'll ask the host if he can update redis. thanks for the help.

    Hey @mono, your redis version should be fine. NodeBB should work with even Redis 2.4.

    Can you make sure that your redis instance is running?



  • my redis instance is running. my host told me now that i have to adress redis through the socket, didn't know that.


  • Admin

    Right-o, then instead of putting 127.0.0.1 as the host, just use the socket address.



  • yep. that worked :)


  • Admin

    (clap) enjoy your new NodeBB!



  • Yep. Now it's installed. But still have some issues with the htaccess file.

    I don't really get that. What do I have to write into the htaccess file?

    Right now I have:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^nodebb/(.*) http://localhost:65532/$1 [P]

    And I get this and the links don't work.

  • @mono Have you been able to solve the last issue? Right now I' trying to install nodebb on uberspace, too. I got it working until I get to the output which is shown in your screenshot. It looks like the nodebb task can find the stylesheet etc:

    Did you find a solution?

    Thanks

  • I got it to work... I changed the .htaccess to

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^forum.example.com
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://localhost:61111/$1 [NC,P,L]
    

    and the config.json to

    {
        "url": "http://forum.example.com",
        "port": "61111",
        "secret": "###",
        "database": "redis",
        "redis": {
            "host": "/home/###/.redis/sock",
            "password": "",
            "database": "0"
        }
    }
