Nah, it's just that none of the guide or manuals work. I have to figure it all out by myself.
It's also quite some change from eg. Wordpress, where you have a 1-click or 3–minute web launcher. I'm very unfamiliar with having to install 5–6 types of new software on my laptop just in order to set up a web–only forum. Doesn't seem to be necessary, really.
You seem to be taking a very negative stance on NodeBB based on your inability to install it. Most (infact, near all) people on this board have managed to install NodeBB perfectly fine.
Also, cut the developers (and us) some slack. NodeBB is free, open source software, and you come to the forums acting like you're entitled to immediate help. If you want to get it to work, please provide error logs where they appear, else we can't help. Please reconsider your attitude, and provide some error logs. Once you've got those things down, we can help you fix your problem(s) in regards to installing NodeBB.
