Actually, as I messed with my NodeBB's installation and broke it, I just cloned it from the repo and then it worked 🙂
Deploy nodeBB on openshift

I can't for the life of me succesfully deploy nodeBB to Openshift. Can anyone point me to some sort of a guide how to actually do it?
Just to clarify - I've created a openshift node app in the directory with the cloned nodeBB repo. Deploy seems to be working in the console, as I'm getting:
remote: Result: success
remote: Activation status: success
remote: Deployment completed with status: success
but the openshift url returns a 503.
Hey @_binary_solo, sorry to have missed your IRC message!
We've never deployed to OpenShift before, do you get shell access to your gear with NodeBB running? You'll have to log in and run
node app --setup
Oh, thanks for the reply! I've noticed this is somewhat of a new problem since google doesn't give any viable solutions.
Fingers crossed then! I really enjoy nodeBB and would very much like to use it in a project.
@julian I've run
node app --setupbut it couldn't connect to mongo (even though I passed correct db name, user and password)
Pinging @baris -- he's our resident Mongo expert
Are you able to connect to Mongo using the command line in your gear?
@julian yeah, I can open the mongo shell through an SSH connection.
Hm... is it an external host? I believe we've only tried local hosts (127.0.0.1) for Mongo. It should work though (think)
Can you paste the error?
info: Configuration Saved OK
error: NodeBB could not connect to your Mongo database. Mongo returned the following error: failed to connect to [127.0.0.1:27017]
@_binary_solo Make sure "auth" is enabled on the mongo config file.
@CaioDA Sorry, but I'm still rather new to this. Where would I enable this?
@_binary_solo I'm not quite sure on Redhat. On Ubuntu it would be /etc/mongo.conf. Maybe it is similar?

Are you successful ?
I like Nodebb and Ghost
I'd love to see a plugin that bridges their blogging platform and NodeBB discussion platform. I have no experience with Ghost though, what do you think about this @emiliendevos?

It's difficult to make a bridge Ghost and Nodebb. And I still have not managed to install Nodebb ^^.
I do not truly master nodejs.
