• 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.

    @sunqi Looks like your redis instance is not running.

    Can you access it when you run redis-cli from 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.

  • @BDHarrington7 thx
    but i use windows..in fact i'm a pc user instead of developer= =!

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    In that case, install GitHub for windows, Node.js (from website), Redis (from website), and that should be enough... I think...
