So I'm planning to make a quiz portal using nodebb. I have no clue on how to take the starting step. Could someone guide me in the right direction?
i can not install nodebb
root@ubuntu:/opt/nodebb/nodebb# apt-get install git nodejs redis-server npm build-essential imagemagick Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done git is already the newest version. Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: nodejs : Conflicts: npm E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages
As I understand it, installing nodejs pulls in npm, so there's no need to install npm separately.
Your command should read
apt-get install nodejs redis-server build-essential imagemagick. The system said you have git installed already, so no need to have it in the command.
Ah yes, funny that. Perhaps we started NodeBB before npm made it into core? Let me remove it from the readme now.
and..i cannot install nodebb as well
error: cannot find module nconf
@sunqi did you run
npm install? and if so did you run into any errors

hope u can help me ,i'm a green hand
@sunqi Looks like your redis instance is not running.
Can you access it when you run
redis-clifrom the command line?
seems that i should read the README first....and the new problem is that how can i run the command:
# apt-get install git nodejs redis-server build-essential imagemagick
Just copy and paste that into your terminal that is if you're running on a unix or unix-like system (Ubuntu, mint, centos etc.) if on a Mac, you have to install those packages with brew.
but i use windows..in fact i'm a pc user instead of developer= =！
In that case, install GitHub for windows, Node.js (from website), Redis (from website), and that should be enough... I think...
