Found the problem: Step 3 requires that the server accept HTTP POST - I was only accepting GET.
Shared hosting for NodeBB
Is there a shared hosting service that is Node.js ready so that I can install NodeBB with a few clicks like installing Wordpress?
NodeBB is designed to work best under a virtual private server. Using a traditional hosting service is not recommended as they do not have the capabilities to power NodeBB effectively.
- The code and instructions can be found here at our project repository
- Full instructions can be found in our Documentation Portal
- We recommend DigitalOcean to host your NodeBB, you'll get a month free just by registering with this link. You can also try applying the 10TOSHIP coupon to get another two months free.
Thank you for your interest in NodeBB!
@johntn Because NodeBB requires dependencies to be installed, we cannot do anything more on our end to make NodeBB install as easy as PHP's "upload to server, browse to site".
