Well, first and foremost, I'm new to this whole thing. I have no background on this type of thing, so if you are able to help me, give it to me like a 5th grader.
Moving on, I purchased a server on Digital Ocean and installed nodebb. It worked absolutely fine. Then I wanted to use my domain instead of the IP address. After Googling, I found out that I needed to use nginx. Without thinking, I installed nginx in the same directory as nodebb which just made everything blow up on my end. So I wiped the droplet to start over. Since then, I've had an issue on reinstalling nodebb as it continuously give me this error:
For reference, I used this guide for setup
I've read this thread in regards to the issue, the only thing is that his error is "sadd" and not "zadd" so I'm not sure of the difference it makes there.
Secondly, when installing nginx, I'm assuming I need to make a directory for it and install it into there correct? I've created an A Name on my domains end to point to the IP address, shown below:
On top of that, I know nginx is used to listen for the command my domain is sending and then I'm supposed to create a DNS record (idr the reason why) but just making sure I'm going in the right direction.
