The following are installation instructions for the Nitrous.IO.

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

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

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

wget && unzip && rm && cd NodeBB-v2.x

Step 4: Install Redis

parts install redis

Step 5: Setup NodeBB

./nodebb setup

Leave everything as default but you can change yourself.

I recommend the port number to bind : 8080

Step 6: And the last one, start NodeBB

./nodebb start

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


You can expand the resources of the application :
