    Please assist me within 24 hours on how to fix.

    This is a community forum not a paid tech support, regardless you seem to be not in the nodebb installation folder, go to the installation folder and then run npm start

    Hi,

    I was not saying this is a paid support. I was just saying that I needed help real quick, sorry if it was misunderstood.

    The main reason I am asking for help is that I am nowhere experienced in Linux commands. Although, I am experienced in other coding languages, Linux is not the one. Please give me commands to enter so I can go in the NodeBB Installation Folder.

    Thanks,
    Lewis


  • @YaBoiLewis you will need to use cd followed by your nodebb folder name

    example: cd nodebb

    Hi,

    Thanks!

    Was this supposed to happen?

  • @YaBoiLewis Yes you can now open a web browser and type the address shown to start the configuration.

    Hi,

    Is it the address of the Ubuntu Server or 0.0.0.0:4567?


  • @YaBoiLewis You can try 0.0.0.0:4567 or localhost:4567. Both should work.

    Hi,

    This is not running on my local machine. It's running on a server hosted by a company. How do I access then? As much as I know is that localhost is for your own machine (stated on your IP Address).


  • @YaBoiLewis you will need to replace it with the server ip or domain

    example: 8.8.8.8:4567 or www.example.com:4567

    hello, there are a lot of painful things with installation from standart packets.
    I found easier way to install nodebb, but i don't know is it correct way or not, but nodebb works fine:

    1. install redis from official website & nodebb too
    2. install git / other important libraries from official documentation
    3. git clone nodebb repo to any folder to another user
    4. run nodejs & node app --setup
    5. enter all data correctly
    6. have fun

  • Hi,

    As much as I'd like to say this was helpful, it wasn't. The most help I got was from the guy who told me how to open the folder.

    With that being said, I am nowhere near. The main cause of this is probably me and I blame myself for that. I will be now hoping to get an Ubuntu Server from HostingItAll, and they will be helping me set up NodeBB!

    Thanks for all that you guys could do.

    Lewis
