NodeBB Forum Software is powered by Node.js and built on either a Redis or MongoDB database. It utilizes web sockets for instant interactions and real-time notifications. NodeBB has many modern features out of the box such as social network integration and streaming discussions, while still making sure to be compatible with older browsers.

Additional functionality is enabled through the use of third-party plugins.

Securing NodeBB

It is important to ensure that your NodeBB and database servers are secured. Bear these points in mind:

  1. While some distributions set up Redis with a more restrictive configuration, Redis by default listens to all interfaces, which is especially dangerous when a server is open to the public. Some suggestions:
    • Set bind_address to 127.0.0.1 so as to restrict access to the local machine only
    • Use requirepass to secure Redis behind a password (preferably a long one)
    • Familiarise yourself with Redis Security
  2. Use iptables to secure your server from unintended open ports. In Ubuntu, ufw provides a friendlier interface to working with iptables.
    • e.g. If your NodeBB is proxied, no ports should be open except 80 (and possibly 22, for SSH access)
