    Oh, even better. Here it is all updated for NodeBB 1.14 and NodeJS updated as well.

    Deploying NodeBB 1.14 on CentOS 8 with MongoDB 4.2

    @Kolt-L It depends on your set up details, of which I know not. But maybe resembles something like:

    mongodump -u <your mongo user here> -p <your mongo user pass here> --out /where/you/want/the/backup/files/$(date +%F) --authenticationDatabase=admin

    If, perchance ye' followed the nodebb docs for setting up mongodb here https://docs.nodebb.org/configuring/databases/mongo/ and here https://docs.nodebb.org/installing/os/ubuntu/ then you should have an admin user. Hopefully you still have that pass tucked away safe somewhere.

    /where/you/want/the/backup/files/$(date +%F) should now be populated with sub directories for each of the admin and nodebb databases. Ensure you copy them both to the new server.

    For future reference, I prefer not to have my privileged admin user running cron scripts so I created a "backup operator" user with limited privileges for such duties. YMMV.

    Note: You may need to quote the pass phrase if it contains special characters.

    I am a web developer, new to nodeBB.

    I am working on a web app where users can discuss a document (see the prototype here; I am in the process of simplifying the UX and planning for version 1). The UI looks like this:
    -- a main area shows the document,
    -- in other areas/windows/tabs, users can create topics to discuss parts of the document.

    Does it sound feasible with nodeBB? My main concern is not OAuth/SSO, but client-side display.
