I see that I had to execute ./nodebb build in the container. I am guessing that it is because after removing the container, the build directory was gone and needed to be rebuilt, which tells me I have to put a build command on every container startup. This is not very optimal. I am hoping at some point in the future we can have a more hands-off docker-friendly deployment (like with env vars and all).
How to install and setup NodeBB?
I'm really sorry but i'm totally noob at this. can someone help me installing NodeBB using Hostinger Hosting?
I appreciate your help
@liwonebuke do you have a VPS from the hosting provider? You can't install NodeBB on shared hosting.
@pichalite I don't have a VPS Well, I think i'm not going to use the amazing forum software. Thanks!

As of date is it the only option available? shared hosting still not possible?
Not unless the shared hosting provider gives you some command line access and will let you install nodejs, and run several npm commands. Plus they have to have MongoDB or Redis access for database. Most shared hosting providers don't have the software necessary for running nodebb, and they won't let you install it.
