First, we install our base software stack. Be sure to pacman -Syu first to make sure you’ve synced with the repositories and all other packages are up to date.
$ sudo pacman -S git nodejs npm redis imagemagick icu
If you want to use MongoDB, LevelDB, or another database instead of Redis please look at the Configuring Databases section.
Next, clone this repository:
$ git clone -b v1.x.x https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB.git nodebb
To track the latest weekly build of NodeBB, substitute weekly in place of v1.x.x
Obtain all of the dependencies required by NodeBB:
$ cd nodebb $ npm install
Initiate the setup script by running the app with the
$ ./nodebb setup
The default settings are for a local server running on the default port, with a redis store on the same machine/port.
Lastly, we run the forum.
$ ./nodebb start
NodeBB can also be started with helper programs, such as
forever. Take a look at the options here.
