The main IRC channel is #lynxchan at Rizon.
I also created a side-channel with the same name at OFTC for TOR users.
Avoid using the channel at OFTC unless you REALLY can't or don't want to use Rizon to avoid fragmenting information exchange.

What did i do wrong?
i installed all latest dependencies.
ran from gitted build
made node user with root privileges
must be the user/bin/... missing directory.

How can I get all of the logs using JSON?
I can grab logs at a given date by using, for example
https://example.org/.global/logs/2017-08-14.json

But I'd like to get all the logs at once, or even better, the logs from the previous 24 hours.

Get maximum size for requests from client javascript
Is there any way to get the maximum size for requests in client side javascript?

If not it would be nice to be able to get that to reject files that are too large before trying to upload them.

MEAN stack
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???

digital ocean
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?

node js
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.

Chan problems
Tinyib and vichan are absurdly outdated.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.

Linode
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.

Linode
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.

Loving Lynxchan so far.
I have another question, I added "application/x-bittorrent" for torrent files to the accepted mime list and it's accepting the files now. But, it's changing the names of the files. The display name is right but when I try to download them the href points to something ending in "applicationx-bittorrent.undefined"

wtf
LyncChan is fast, it is what i need. It is too hard to set up= how much can i pay someone to help me set it up??? 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?

mongodb security
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:
>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",
> password: "password"

To the db.json settings.

It works fine if it's got no authorization, but even if I put the admin username and password in the db.json file it just throws an error. I didn't turn on the ssl flag or anything. But I'm mostly posting here to make sure it isn't a system username and password or something like that.

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?

i2ch
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.
