MEAN stack Anonymous 06/17/2017 (Sat) 05:39:52 No. 384 [Reply]
so on digital ocean, i spent 12 hours trying to install lynxchan. I did all kinds of options, building server from scratch ect. Nothing worked. I then tried the MEAN stack, and bam the setup.sh worked. So yeah, this means anyone could install lyncxhan with the one click install MEAN stack upload lyncxhan and BAM!!! God dammit im exited the setup.sh worked but im not sure where to go to run it. I pointed my browser to the server and nothing comes up yet. im close to actually getting it to work, can someone pls tell me wtf to do next???

You smoke a joint.

>The MEAN stack is MongoDB, Express.js, AngularJS (or Angular), and Node.js.
Congratulations. You now have programs installed that you don't need.

Do everything on your own personal virtual machine before you rush to set things up on a production server.

is this broken on all lynx?

the answer is no

digital ocean Anonymous 06/12/2017 (Mon) 02:56:41 No. 378 [Reply]
So with digital ocean (like linode) one can set up a server droplet in centos, ubantu ect. Digital Ocean also has one quick installs, like lamp, lemp, and even 2 different versions of node.js. So is the one click installs of node.js a good place to start? Also, since digitalocean and linode are both common and popular, couldn't you make a video showing exactly how to set up lyncchan on linode and digitalocean?

Anonymous 06/12/2017 (Mon) 12:05:14 No. 379
I never used their quick installs and I wouldn't recommend it, since it might not install the correct version.

And you just install the same on every single linux distro.

Not to mention I have not only written instructions on the readme, but I have written a install script.

If you are not illiterate, you wouldn't have any issues with that.

And if you are, you have no business running a server.

senseless Anonymous 06/12/2017 (Mon) 16:07:55 No. 380
Everything you need to do is on the command line, which video isn't going to really help you out with.

Don't just fucking ignore the big fucking thing I made to make it easy. >>345

node js Anonymous 06/10/2017 (Sat) 07:03:26 No. 376 [Reply]
Is node.js backwards compatible with LynxChan? Like on digitalocean one can install node.js with one click in the newer versions. Or, one can make a ubantu or cent os install first. With so many options on DigitalOcean i have no idea the best way to set things up for Lynxchan.

Anonymous 06/10/2017 (Sat) 14:26:40 No. 377
I recommend centos.
And I recommend using the newest release of the version specified on the readme for node.
For example: if the readme tells you to use node 6.6 and the latest release for 6.x is 6.11, you will be better off using 6.11.

Chan problems Anonymous 05/10/2017 (Wed) 17:19:26 No. 341 [Reply]
Tinyib and vichan are absurdly outdated. Lynxchan is about impossible to install. If you made an easy tutorial that allows one to install lynxchan, I will pay someone 300 dollars. I don't want someone to install it for me, I want instructions on how to install it on my own. I love lynxchan speed and ease of use. Please help.

LynxChan has to be hosted on a VPS or dedicated hardware, so you can have root access to set it up the way it needs to be setup.


Read the contents of the first.sh and second.sh files. These scripts more or less automate everything. I've added comments that explain everything it's doing and give background for why. You can copy the unzipped contents of the zip archive into your home directory on the server and run them.

Included are a couple of media files particular to our test site. You can replace them with identically-named files for your own site, if you wish.

I made some modifications in second.sh that I haven't been able to test, but I'm feeling pretty confident.

senseless 05/12/2017 (Fri) 19:28:53 No. 346
All the read lines are there so you can see what the result of the last command was before moving on to the next one by hitting enter.

It's possible that the CentOS 7 Minimal you run this on will be configured somewhat differently than what I've used, which may cause certain commands to not do what we want. Seeing the output allows you to decide whether you can still continue by hitting enter or need to stop the script by hitting ctrl+c. If you take the second option, you can fix whatever misconfiguration or whatever happened, comment out commands up to where the problem happened, and restart where you left off. Make sure, however, that the script cds to the directory it needs to be in to run the commands the script now starts with.

Linode Anonymous 06/09/2017 (Fri) 04:37:57 No. 371 [Reply]
Okay, so i watched tons of videos on linode. I got linode 10 dollar plan. Can you tell me what i build exactly to get node.js? I take it a common lamp config would not be needed.

Anonymous 06/09/2017 (Fri) 11:44:55 No. 372
Install node 6.10.
Install mongodb 3.2.
Then follow the instructions on lynxchan's readme.

senseless Anonymous 06/09/2017 (Fri) 12:58:39 No. 374
I put a bunch of effort into more or less automating everything starting from a bare CentOS 7 Minimal install to having a functioning site with SSL. Though you'd need to already have a domain name pointing at your IP to get SSL.

Join us in Rizon #lynxchan if you have any questions.

Linode Anonymous 06/09/2017 (Fri) 03:18:16 No. 370 [Reply]
Does linode have an affiliate program? Why not make a vid of how to set up lynxchan on linode, and you would get a kickback from linode when someone signs up.

Expiring Threads Anonymous 06/05/2017 (Mon) 08:38:50 No. 364 [Reply]
Stephen you autist.
Why when I unsticky a thread that's been pinned for some time and I lock it does it delete? The fuck is that shit dude? It shouldn't 'expire'. Change this.

Anonymous 06/05/2017 (Mon) 12:23:17 No. 366
That shouldn't happen.
What should happen is that the now unpinned thread will be deleted if a new thread is created and it is too old to be preserved.

Are you sure a new thread wasn't created after you unpinned it?

Anonymous 06/06/2017 (Tue) 02:21:27 No. 367
>That shouldn't happen.
All I did was unpin and lock a several month old thread. It was a meta thread on End/pol/

Then I created a new thread (Meta 2) and pinned it.

Oddly enough the thread itself will work if you enter the url manually. However it's not appearing in the catalog.

Anonymous 06/06/2017 (Tue) 12:45:26 No. 368
In that case, what probably happened is that the thread is over the thread limit for the board.
It is expected for it to not show on the catalog or any indexed board page.

HOWEVER, endchan have their own fork and lord knows all the ways odili could have fucked up any aspect of it. So any unexpected behavior could be their fault.

Thanka for the response. Odili usually responds when I ask a question with 'idk ask Stephen Lynx' so hear I am :D

Are there any scripts available to move my Vichan-based imageboard to the LynxChan engine?

Anonymous 06/05/2017 (Mon) 01:44:06 No. 363
Isn't this a script for Infinity, not Vichan?

Anonymous 06/05/2017 (Mon) 12:21:08 No. 365
Ask space.
He started writing it for infinity but then made it for vichan, if I am not mistaken.
