In typical me fashion, I upgraded right away. Per best practices of most changes per window, I installed the 8.x node release and broke npm
After a reinstall of node and npm, all was well in the world.

This is a nice update to their droplets. I've been running the old $10 plan with 1 GB of RAM and 1 CPU core. Now I can't decide if I want to keep the same price and get double RAM, or lower down to $5 and keep the same box...
Not sure if referral links are kosher here, but if you want to try out DigitalOcean, this link gets you $10: https://m.do.co/c/3a45a3f20cb5
@teh_g Very good, that's why I always say, post your config files removing sensitive data. We would have helped you resolving this simple issue of removing the slash better.
I just grabbed that right from the documentation. It might be worth fixing the documentation.
I stuck with same pricing for double the resources. Incredible.
I didn't think the upgrade would make a difference (1 GB of memory to 2 GB), but I have seen a decrease in 503 errors, and the forums load much faster when going between pages. Totally worth it.
Is your domain set to resolve to that IP address?
Your nginx config also looks like it is missing a lot. The documentation has a lot of info. A full example block with all the recommendations lives here: https://docs.nodebb.org/configuring/scaling/ but at a minimum you should follow the guide on this page: https://docs.nodebb.org/configuring/proxies/nginx/
But that said, yes, a forum is a good use case for a relational database, though we wanted to try something new with a NoSQL solution. Redis worked well and still does, though there are areas or improvement to be made in MongoDB, and most involve dropping Redis support at some point down the line.
Dropping redis will make me sad since I setup my forum with the redis recommendation from the documentation
You'll have to publicize the secret sauce you use to convert from redis to Mongo.
I spy with my little eyes...
Glad this popped up as a new post. This plugins looks awesome...
Thank you for replying to me. I will use your link to register DO, but Discourse and Nodebb are better source code so you? Sorry my english is so bad.
No problem. I'm not certain what your question is.
I want to install both Ghost cms and Nodebb on one VPS RAM512, is it okay?
Thanks for responding to me.
I doubt you would be able to run both. It depends greatly on how many users you have, but 512 MB would barely be enough for NodeBB. Why not use DigitalOcean? Their 1 GB plan is probably enough for both, but you'd be better off with 2 GB. If you use my referral link it will get you $20 worth of credit: https://m.do.co/c/3a45a3f20cb5
@baris can users do this now? it would be great to turn of node bb community into something like sub reddits where people can make their own sub forums for discussiosn
It is not possible for users to make categories now.
@julian how do I check my version of Node.JS?
node -v will show the version of Node you are running.
You also can't run Windows on Digital Ocean droplets, so I'm not sure where your hosting is. If you are using Digital Ocean, the link julian provided should have all of the steps you need.
I'd suggest getting familiar with the shell, since that is a pretty big part of maintaining any web application (not just NodeBB).
@julian how can i set up nodebb on VPS of hostgator which is running CENTOS 6.9
help required urgently .
I want to set up whole nodebb system on my VPS server , i don't know to do a set up ,where should i write all commands .
Oh ok. I would recommend adding the systemd instructions to the Ubuntu installation instructions then unless it is already on the docs site somewhere.
The one on the updated docs looks fine: https://docs.nodebb.org/configuring/running/#systemd
oh it needs an api. is it a pay service only?
They have a free tier for pretty low number of hits on their API (1000 / month). You can also self-deploy if you don't want to host it yourself.
I use their hosted option on my forum, it has been great.
