    @Thief-Garrett said in Installing along side preexisting intallation of wordpress on Apache2 (ubuntu):

    So what I ended up doing was converting from Apache2 to Nginx and created a server entry for nodebb with SSL. I'm thinking it was primarily the SSL and lack of server block for nodebb causing the forums.example.com to redirect back to example.com

    no need for a server block if they are running independently. I wouldn't recommend both on the same server for other reasons, but there is no reason for them to conflict.

  • Error in console.

    Why shouldn't I use sudo to run NodeBB?

    You do not want to run NodeBB using sudo because this causes NodeBB to be run via the root user. This superuser has complete access to the entire system and should NodeBB ever become compromised, then a malicious user can utilise NodeBB as an attack vector to take over your system.

    Secondary effects from running NodeBB under sudo include the changing of ownership of some files to root, which would complicate administration of your NodeBB further as future starts of NodeBB will fail with an EACCES error, simply because some files could not be written to, as they are now owned by root instead of the regular user!

    Best practice security recommends running NodeBB with as few privileges as possible (ideally, nobody:nogroup), but practically an unprivileged user is perfectly fine.

    By the way, this also means running NodeBB as a user that has sudo access is also insecure. Just some food for thought.

    @sfchun said in nodeBB 1.8.2 ubuntu16.04.2 redis install from scratch:

    node app --setup

    I guess that was not the right step here.
    I copied the content of package.json from my running nodebb

    then run

    $ npm start > [email protected] start /var/www/mydomain.com > node loader.js 2018-04-19T07:47:44.529Z [450] - info: Launching web installer on port 4567 2018-04-19T07:47:44.931Z [450] - info: Web installer listening on http://0.0.0.0:4567

    Now everything is fine, but sadly I dont know how this file was originaly generated πŸ˜• it seems it does not come from nodebb github repo ...

    At least I can continue !...

    @lewis-belton your site is very slow and I tried to access the calender and it doesnt work. Maybe disable the plugins one at a time and see if it comes good. Remember to restart the forum after disabling each one.
