@yariplus much better!!
I could use a little bit of help and would appreciate any guidance. Never built a website or forum before and I had heard NodeBB was pretty simple/easy. I now have a very new appreciation for what web developers go through. Here is my current status:
Droplet with Digital Ocean
LEMP stack installed
NodeBB and support files (like redis) installed
Domain registered with register.com and DNS set up on Digital Ocean / Register.com
Configured nginx proxy
I've been trying to configure nginx so that whenever you enter the domain cercforums.com it brings up the NodeBB. Except this is what I see after configuring nginx. Before if I accessed NodeBB via Http://IP:Port I would get the standard display of NodeBB.
Can anyone give me an idea on what is going wrong?
Nvm I fixed it! Didn't properly follow the guide at https://docs.nodebb.org/en/latest/configuring/proxies.html
