@flex it works, thanks
nodebb + heroku + mongolab
(if you're patient enough to wait)
TBH, I was hoping to get it done in 24 hours with no sleep.
You seem to be taking a very negative stance on NodeBB based on your inability to install it.
My first impression is that it IS impossible to install it. Most people would probably have resigned after 12–18 hours of not getting it to work. First impressions matter. I guess most OSX users wouldn't be able to change their drive to a different OSX version either, as according to the instructions ONLY Mavericks macs can install this forum (within the OSX family).
I'd say I've been very, very patient and enduring.
I'll see what I can do. In any case, I could perhaps provide some input to your upcoming OSX / Heroku / Mongolab chapter
Edit: My final input for your OSX install guide is in the top post. I would advice to make the installation meant for the Cloud platform independent of the user's choice of computer. He wants to use this thing in the cloud, simple as that, and not at home on his little machine.
Everything about the Mongo DB files and settings are still very unclear. Plus there are no hints as to what to do or try, just faffing about and hoping for the best. I don't even have a mongodb.conf file anywhere on my computer. Maybe stretching into the 36 hours straight.
"mongo": "~0.10.1", "connect-mongo": "~2.0.0"
to package.json, but I have no idea what I'm doing or why that would work.
Guess it didn't like that Mongo version number guestimate?
npm ERR! No compatible version found: connect-mongo@~2.0.0
Just adding packages to package.json doesn't install them.
"mongodb": "~2.0.0", "connect-mongo": "~0.8.2"
Think 'mongo' and 'meh' pretty much sums it up, for me, anyhow!
Happy using bbPress for my needs
I just came to this forum looking for my heroku + node + mongo deployment. I wouldnt be using redis for anything. Now, the thing to start with is "where do I provide the mongodb server info to create a connection and how would that info be read by the mongodb client?" By adding mongo version entries in the package.json, it would install the node_modules for mongodb, but to be able to connect to a running mongo server is the issue I am facing
You should create a new topic.
What local OS are you using?
