A little help with NodeBB on Docker?
So I'm VERY new to Docker.com and stuff. I've noticed that I could get Ubuntu, or Nginx or many other things on a docker.
I just want to set up a Forum on Docker. The tutorial given is kinda outdated. Can anyone tell me what I should do?
My questions: Please answer all
- Which software thing do I take? Nginx? Ubuntu? What?! I heard NGinx is widely used.
- Based on which software I should take, could you tell me what steps I should follow? Any tutorial link is appreciated.
- By taking that software, what are the flaws? Like data will reset, it will go offline quickly? Etc.
- Does docker have any disadvantages? Is it 24/7? Do I need to pay? Anything? I'm new to it.
Please help me. I'm doing it for a friend. Thank you.

@Friendship Yes Azure would be fine. Free is ok too, I've run stuff off a laptop at my house and used a free subdomain for a long time (but now I make money so I can pay to not have to deal with things like the IP changing or someone turning off the computer)
The tutorial is still valid BTW, just apply some of the stuff to what you're going to do on some other provider. DO actually has a lot of good tutorials for this stuff.
Thank you @Bri alot. You've helped me a lot today. I thank you a lot. I'll go with Azure. Try using Tutorials here and there if I ever get confused, I'll just ask over here. Because I know for sure, NodeBB users are helpful
How do I setup NodeBB directly..? Is it possible?
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.
RE: How do I setup NodeBB directly..? Is it possible?
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
