@Abhinov-Singh-0 you can. I have centos 6
First install devtoolset-2 to get gcc 4.8.x
Then enable the environment, and install libvip 8.8.3
Then install nodebb but with environment enabled also under nodebb user run.
Is it possible to install NodeBB without SSH and install it on shared hosting instead where SSH is not accessible?
@Archeon No it's not posible. You have to run npm install command from terminal, so you must have access to terminal.
Will there ever be a possibility to install it like that, kind of like Xenforo setup? I would really like this in the future.
Given the nature of NodeBB as a Node.js app, we'll have to rely on hosting providers to step up and provide first-class Node.js support for their customers.
It's not there yet, but it's only a matter of time
I'm really hoping that one day this can be possible. I'm sitting on a SMF forum with PHP, Java, JQuery and MySQL and I would love to start learning Node.JS and developing the site around Node.JS.

As was I. Then I found out that chair only had 3 wonky legs, so I bought a leather sofa. Digital Ocean starts at $5 a month and is plenty for most forums. Plus there's an exporter for posts and topics.
@Archeon just out of genuine curiosity but, how do you intend to (re)start and debug without access to the command line? Also installing it in the first place would pose a problem, tweaking and fixing packages would be although - arguably, one can do that locally as well. Somehow I get the impression you don't rely on the cli much in your desktop/laptop/development environment. Although theoretically, you'd be able to install a few things without cli and manage instances (e.g. compose.io for mongo, some redis host), the instances I had to debug/fix some plugin or other failure (since that is what Node does best, crash often and hard) far, far exceed any where I could deal with a plain NodeBB admin reload/restart (usually those are just configuration changes). I'm having a hard time imagining a pure GUI-based way, at least the foreseeable future anyway, which is not to say it is impossible
@supersym Good point there, just, I don't know how Xenforo does it
