Installing NodeBB locally resulting in weird URL

  • I've just installed NodeBB locally but when I access the forum via I get a weird redirect to

    Why might that be?

    My server block looks like this:

    server {
        listen 80;
        server_name localhost;
        location / {
            proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
            proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
            proxy_set_header X-NginX-Proxy true;
            proxy_redirect off;
            # Socket.IO Support
            proxy_http_version 1.1;
            proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
            proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";

    I'm using NodeBB 0.7.3, Redis 3.0.3, Nginx, Ubuntu 14.04

  • I reinstalled Redis and things are now fine.



Looks like your connection to NodeBB was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
