I was able to make it work with /forum; no ^~ required. Given what @yariplus stated this seems relevant.
Indented lines are ones that I copied from my other blocks that weren't present in the suggested.
Can it be done? If the answer to the previous question is 'yes', then how?
The answer for me and everyone else trying this with a mac is surely NO, it CANNOT be done, that's unless you talk to a guy using a WIndows PC and ask him nicely if he can do it for you on his machine instead. Spending 36 hours of your time will NOT, repeat: not, get the job done on a mac. Sorry.
I would need some kind of guidance, a point–by–point assembly instruction or similar. I haven't done this before, so I cannot repeat what I've already done. I need information on how to do it from someone or something else.
"The NodeBB Config (config.json)" sounds important by the look of the docs, but is not included in the clone. Would configuring NodeBB perhaps be easier for noobs if it was?
Should I just create a text file and call it config.json and write something creative there, or is there some kind of template I can glean inspiration from?
I'm pretty sure that it would be easier for new installers if there was such a file in the package.
Suggestion: Someone tell me where the config.json file really is, alternatively post a screenshot so I can write one by hand. (Or start providing some real answers. You know, the kind that would help somebody out?)
./nodebb setup answer the questions and it will be generated.
@baris No, it doesn't.
It should. Any errors? Do you have permission to write to that folder?
Errors a–plenty. Where's the web installer?
@meh What errors?
There's no config file in the package, for starters.
@meh The setup creates the config. What errors are you getting when you run
For simplicity, let's just assume I've done everything wrong. Where do I start?
Although it does not have MongoLabs instruction. So here:
node app --setup
mongoinstead of redis in database prompt
No need to remove any "failed states" first? Ie remove failed packages?
@meh If the
npm install failed, then run it again. If it continues to fail, paste the errors here.
I'd like to start fresh again. I understand I don't have to remove anything?
When it says /path/to/repo/clone , does that mean I should paste that, or figure out something else where I want to put this? (It sounds cool, but to be honest isn't very helpful.)
@meh replace that with a path to a directory in your heroku instance
@pitaj Any path?
How? Docs say "Enable Redis To Go for your heroku account (Nano is a free plan): heroku addons:create redistogo:nano"
I assume I shouldn't type the same as for Redis, but something else instead.
