registration zendo 05/09/2017 (Tue) 10:26:06 No. 333 [Reply]
Hi, i am trying to find a chan that requires registration and log in to post. Is that possible with lynxchan?
1 post and 1 image omitted.

It just haven't been updated since forever, but its perfectly possible.

i would probably be screwed, i only ran unix with php and i never did node.js , guess i will have to learn somehow.

node js server zendo 05/09/2017 (Tue) 14:59:01 No. 337
okay i only did unix and php, so i am totally lost. if one gets node js hosting would it be easier to set up lynxChan? Like this one... https://cloud.google.com/nodejs/ if i dumped vichan and even the unix host and got the google node js one would it make it easier to run lynxchan?

PHP and vichan have absolutely nothing to do with lynxchan.
It would make no difference in running lynxchan, probably would only get in the way.

And any hosting that is not just regular access to a linux server would be harder to set lynxchan on. If possible at all.

And you are probably referring to linux. A pure linux hosting, without any cloud stuff would be the ideal.

Like this one... https://cloud.google.com/nodejs/ if i dumped vichan and even the unix host and got the google node js one would it make it easier to run lynxchan?

mongodb security Anonymous 02/20/2017 (Mon) 13:08:06 No. 331 [Reply]
I've got Lynx set up and it's working wonderfully. But I would like to secure mongo a little bit more than just limiting it to the local host.

I opened mongo, switched to the admin db

>use admin
>db.createUser({user: "admin", pwd: "password", roles:[{role: "userAdminAnyDatabase", db: "admin"}]})

switched on security:
>authorization: enabled

Log back in and make a lynxuser user
>use user-data
>db.createUser({user: "lynxuser", pwd: "password", roles:[{role: "read", db: "user-data"}, {role:"readWrite", db: "lynxchan"}]})

Then I add
> user: "lynxuser",

If you typed LITERALLY that, then your json is invalid, keys also need double commas.

What error are you getting?

For the record: replied on IRC.

It was because the incorrect node.js versio was being used.

Question: Why does text display under the images instead of next to them? Feature or bug?

I mean, this a really basic feature of the imageboard's interface. This way it looks really weird and forces you to do some extra unnecessary scrolling. Content (images + text) should be displayed together. I can't find any imageboard software that does this and sincerely, it looks awkward.

Do you have any plans on fixing it?

FE detail.
See over endchan.xyz or penumbra.network, their css is not the same.

This FE I use is nothing but a placeholder one, it is meant to be stable and nothing else.

I need some help guys. i have some issues
1. how do i setup SSH from centOS
2. i reinstalled lynxchan so the HTML or csses are default but the website theme is gone (its not blue)
3. how do i host from home.

Anonymous 02/03/2016 (Wed) 11:51:07 No. 326
1: it is set on install
2: I need to see the page source and know the commit both the engine and the fe are
3: don't know, you have to open ports and stuff. Its really shitty IF you can pull it off.

Is it possible to install lynxchan software without the board creation option?

StephenLynx##xS3ESC Board owner 12/09/2015 (Wed) 19:33:49 No. 321
See this to see all available options for site owners.

I develop it thinking of traditional chans without user-created boards too, so using it in this scenario is not lacking.

What do you put for 0 for "disableAccountCreation" and for "boardCreationRequirement" to be for root users only what number do i put.

StephenLynx##xS3ESC 01/08/2016 (Fri) 10:38:56 No. 324
Use the GUI. Manually inputing values on json is fucking ass. Or read the src/be/readme and do it anyway, I don't remember which values you have to input manually for that.

The gui for global settings is linked from the global management page that is linked from the account page, if you have a global moderation role.

Hey, I'm that anon from /tech/res/313133.html
I'll host an instance on i2p, but it probably won't be permanent / long-lived.

Currently don't have the time to set it up. Could be a few days before I do.

I'll report back when I'm ready.
