@julian I will admit that I changed the thresholds for the 503 errors a while ago because they were happening a ton...
ubuntu 14.0.1 x64
After I installed all required apt packages and git clone the nodebb repository and did a npm install under the nodebb folder,
I found several errors during the installation process. And ask me to read details logs
These are the errors

Yes, I'm in Vagrant linux virtualbox.
The installation issue could be solved by 'npm install --no-bin-links'
