I was wondering before I download NodeBB forum software can i install my board and run it through a website like a normal website that has FTP just like other forums out there?
No, you cannot.
NodeBB based on Node.js and you need access to Node.js and npm to configure Nodebb
@HolyPhoenix My test forum is on Digital Ocean, and they have SSD disks. Thanks for the info!
NodeBB is designed to work best under a virtual private server. Using a traditional hosting service is not recommended as they do not have the capabilities to power NodeBB effectively.
Thank you for your interest in NodeBB!
@ben-coyle2 Cool, cool, cool!
You persisted, teased out the gremlins and finally got things working. Good job! 👍
Now the real fun begins 🎆
@julian Yes the taskbar Icon
Thanks for your replies!
@julian This will be the solution in this case.
@PitaJ Great, Thanks.
Currently I don't have time to join the development community of contributors. If I have in future, I will take a look into code to write a backup function also for the registration.
The software is really great, congratulations for the community.
