@AOKP THx for your help -- I have a new instance of NodeBB (on Ubuntu 14.04) up and running.
The testing continues.
I am hosting my app on openshift. One of my nodebb app stopped working and i lost all the users data and everything. Anyway i can backup the forum data?
I know i can backup and restore openshift snapshots. But is there any way to save the forum database locally?
@Nisthar Process of creating the snapshot downloads it to local directory:
If you use mongo, you can do a mongodump
If you use Redis, shut down NodeBB and redis, and the data is stored in the redis directory.
@PitaJ Could you give a detailed explanation? I didn't see any users data in the mongodb. Also how do i restore it in a new openshift app?
