@AOKP thank you, thank you, thank you! Did this and was able to run NodeBB without issue.
@julian I was curious about that, as I had no issues with a fresh install yesterday.
The guide which nodebb provide link is unable to load and i would like to know when will the guide be loaded. I currently follow other guide but i reach to the point where the error is : NodeBB could nto connect to your redis database. redis returned the following error redis connection to my digital ocean data base failed - connect econnrefused
thanks if anybody can help me.
if anyone is wondering the website which was linked is down and it is this one http://burnaftercompiling.com/nodebb/setting-up-a-nodebb-forum-for-dummies/
Sounds like you don't have Redis installed.
Try installing it via apt:
$ sudo su $ add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/redis-server $ apt-get update $ apt-get install redis-server $ logout
and try again
THIS HELPED! THANKS! i got it working
@ngsankar is proof of why this community is so awesome. Just two weeks ago s/he joined and asked a question, admitting they were a "noobie", but got it resolved via help from other community members.
Two weeks later @ngsankar is already helping someone else. Keep up the good work, your guide is better than mine!
Just as a FYI, digital ocean offers I think $50 if you submit a detailed guide for installing software like NodeBB on their platform. Worth looking into.
@psychobunny thanks for those good words. Being a newbee, i had done number of trial and error on installation and noted down the steps for my reference. if its useful for someone , happy to share being part of the community. Thanks for ur suggestion for write-up on digital ocean, i will try to make it more detailed and simpler and post it when i hv little time.
@ngsankar Thank you very much. these steps worked, after I struggled with other guides for 2 days. Though I am stuck with old Ubuntu version
