I don't have access to the OS, however I have access to the FTP information and
the GoDaddy details.
Typically any platform like that is an extremely limited PHP-only web server. NodeBB is neither PHP nor does it run on a web server. So beyond lacking the right languages, access, tooling, etc. it's fundamentally the wrong conceptual approach. It's not a CGI script to be installed on top of a web server, and that's what essentially all of those services are.
I recommend a vendor like Vultr and CentOS 8. Works great.
Hello fellow Noders. I'm brand new to NodeBB and trying to get it up and running on an Openshift instance however... I cannot get past the stage in the guide where I have to push the install files to the server via a Git push. The thing times out after 5-10 minutes because it's trying to build at the same time. I've also tried setting an Openshift to clone the repository itself as part of the creation process but... the just results in it disappearing from my console about 10 minutes later with the last status being 'building'.
Anyone had any luck. I've been around the interwebs looking for solution but most of the timeout issues are pointing at SSH and not Git. 😕
