Whoops, my tongue slipped.
Trying NodeBB on Ubuntu
I have XAMPP. Presuming it won't be sufficient to make NodeBB work as a local install on Ubuntu, what my options to try NodeBB on Ubuntu 14.10 ? Thanks.
Didn't you install NodeBB on Ubuntu before for one of your forums? Bad memory
Anyways, this should get you up and running:
I have used Ubuntu to manage my NodeBB install on VPS. But I want to try a local install this time.
And how does we start see the forum ? Does a browser window opens when we try ./nodebb start ?

You have to open it manually.
Of course you need to configure it to use localhost instead of other IP/hostname/domain.

Apache as a part of XAMPP listen on port 80. You can install and configure nginx or built in Node.js webserver to listen on port of your choice (4567 by default). It will not break local PHP/ MySQL sites.
You can find ready to use configurations here:and
Thank you @nhl-pl . Will try and update.
