How do I setup NodeBB directly..? Is it possible?


  • Gamers

    So I'll be getting my own website and domain soon, and I'm planning on adding a subdomain of "forum.xxxx.com" to it.

    And I want to use NodeBB for it.
    But... Is there any way to install it in some Webhost like 000webhost and hostinger or something? Any help with step by step tutorials would be REALLY helpful. Only reason I'm choosing NodeBB is because of its Awesomeness.
    Helping me would double it.

    Thank you :)

    @Friendship you can't Install NodeBB on shared hosting.

    The web hosts that you talk about are only offering PHP and MySQL to deploy sites on. NodeBB isn't written in PHP but in Node.js, so you need another provider.

    A few providers that provides free tiers that can likely deploy this are Openshift (I would recommend that, if you want a free solution), Heroku (also very good), Appfog (hadn't used them for ages because it was a hell to deploy on) or Amazon AWS (I have no experience with them).
    You can use a tutorial from the NodeBB documentation then. I know that Openshift has a tutorial on the forums, and probably heroku too (due to its fame).

    Thank you for the quick reply. And sorry for my delayed reply. Lol. Okay. I've tried using Openshift a few months ago. But the "NodeBB Guide Installation" thing was pretty outdated which made me stop. Is there any "up-to-date" tutorial? @pichalite @JasperNL

    Thank you! :)



  • being hosting on heroku, works perfect. You should try it

    If you are using docker you can use my packages :)

    Hello there!

    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.

    Thank you for your interest in NodeBB!
