As long as Lightsail doesn't limit the capabilities of their VPS, I don't see why it would be any different from a normal install on Ubuntu.
yeah, it's identical. LightSail ends up being exactly like a DO or Vultr.
On my installation of the nodebb on the latest version I am unable to create new posts or new thread as normal user.
Mongo or Redis?
Edit: Tested on both, it seems ok to me...
I have figured out that using any kind of plugin it does beside the SSO authentication ones would prevent all users create new threads or reply to posts for some reason. So I ended up removing all the plugins.
I am using version 0.6.1 on mongodb.
Hm, likely the plugins are too new? Do you know which plugin? To my knowledge not many plugins should alter the privileges
I remember that it was the poll plugin the image gallery plugin I kind of tried to install the versions of all plugins which release date was close to the release date of the v0.6.1 of nodebb.
My guess is that the poll plugin isn't doing the hook callback correctly. Does it work with any other plugin besides the poll plugin?
There is also another information which I forgot to mention. Because of some issues for for some gravatar images had not generated correct URL I had to use 0.7.0. Then I downgraded back to 0.6.1 Might be that this caused the problem with most of the plugins not work correctly. As I mentioned before it was not only the pull plugin but also image gallery plugin there was another plugin which fixed https url for images. mention plugin (not sure that the names are correct) and so on.
@Peter-Zoltan-Keresztes You may want to uninstall all of the plugins, and reinstall them from the plugins ACP, so the correct versions get downloaded.
I can live for now with what we have. I am waiting for 0.7 to be released then I hope my issue will be fixed. I just thought you guys want to know about the issue I am experiencing.
