I installed nodebb and started it, but when I go to my ip via URL (dont have a domain setup yet) it just shows me the files.. I setup the redis server as well. If you want the config? Running apache 2.4.
I'm new to this type of forum hosting / setup.
@Defaultuser unless you configured apache as a reverse proxy, NodeBB runs on port 4567 by default. When you use your IP to access NodeBB, did you specify the port?
Thank you! I had set a proxy for nodebb.
Question, how would I go about changing the /var/www/ location to home? Or should I leave it.
Also my installation seems to be missing a few things like upload a profile pic, like the one here.
@Defaultuser you setup NodeBB under /var/www?
No. I moved it there.
You gotta change your NGINX config to match the home directory for that domain's files. If you cant figure it out post your NGINX config file here.
You can run nodebb standalone without Nginx or Apache. Start nodebb on port 80. This works if you only have one domain
Domain points to hello.com -> x.x.x.150 and nodebb starts on x.x.x.150:80
You only need Nginx or Apache if you need more Virtualhosts
@Jenkler Thanks. I'm using Apache since I have a landingpage and I will point a subdomain to the forums. Interesting, always thought Apache or any webserver was needed for http
