Nitrous.IO

The following are installation instructions for the Nitrous.IO <http://nitrous.io>.

Step 1: Create a new application in boxes with NodeJS :

https://www.nitrous.io/app#/boxes/new

Step 2: Open terminal / SSH to the application / Open IDE

Step 3: Get the files of NodeBB, unzip, delete master.zip and cd to the folder

wget https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/archive/v1.x.x.zip && unzip NodeBB-v1.x.x.zip && rm NodeBB-v1.x.x.zip && cd NodeBB-v1.x.x

Step 4: NPM Install

npm install

Step 5: Install Redis

parts install redis

Step 6: Setup NodeBB

./nodebb setup

Leave everything as default but you can change yourself.

I recommend the port number to bind : 8080

Step 14: And the last one, start NodeBB

./nodebb start

And then open the “Preview URI” without port if you have put for port : 8080.
