Hey, admin. Do you do anything to secure mongo db in your setup file? Apparently mongo db is crazy not secure. This article explains why.

My lynxchan instance with the placeholder front end isn't serving the favicon any more (it was yesterday, not sure what changed). The file is still in src/fe/static. Any idea how to fix this?

Cat 09/27/2018 (Thu) 12:07:53 Id: 735f90 No. 623
You need to place the file on gridfs using mongofiles on /favicon.ico

Cat 09/30/2018 (Sun) 14:48:11 Id: 023578 No. 624
I added it with 'mongofiles put favicon.ico' but it's still not showing up on the site

Cat 09/30/2018 (Sun) 20:59:12 Id: 60aa75 No. 625
You forgot to specify a location to be put, it has to be on "/favicon.ico"

That fixed it, thanks a lot

This is for debian.

Pre-install: Make sure you've created a user account with sudo rights, and use it for the rest of the tutorial. Do not run lynxchan on the root account.

1. Install nodejs

curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
sudo apt-get install -y build-essential

2. Install Mongodb
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv EA312927
echo "deb http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/debian wheezy/mongodb-org/3.2 main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-3.2.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y mongodb-org

i dont fucking get what im supposed to do with domain.org?????????? is it a placeholder for my own domain? the symlink command isn't even working, and "sudo service lynxchan start" gives me "Failed to start lynxchan.service: Unit lynxchan.service not found."

Cat 10/02/2018 (Tue) 12:14:14 Id: 1f8535 No. 627
If the lynxchan service wasn't found, you didn't run the root-setup script and asked for it to install the service.

Lynxchan Docker Cat 09/25/2018 (Tue) 12:48:22 Id: 7997b0 No. 620 [Reply]
I'm a noob with docker, only know how to run images them not make them.

Does anyone already have, or want to make, lynxchan for docker? Either an all in one, or lynxchan in one that links to a separate mongodb image?
That would be sweet.

Cat 09/26/2018 (Wed) 07:36:21 Id: 7306ae No. 621
that would prolly not work out very well and be waste of time. In case you did not notice, lynxchan changes versions frequently as it is develops. The front ends do not work with newer versions. In contrast to docker, i log in to the ssl, run the commands to get the dependancies, then get lynxchan then install it. I have all the commands on a text file, i copy and paste them so an install from total scratch takes exactly 5 minutes. Docker complicates things and is utterly not beneficial to the concepts of lynxchan... easy to run and not expensive because you can install it on any cheap vpn. Docker is for insecure people who are too lazy to make a text file with the commands on them. No need for docker at all. So, as one of the leading developers of LynxChan, i could say that i will do it, but for 43,000,000 usd and make sure to specify which version you want on docker. Also, You have a choice in the Ppe the frog front end or a pic of someone shitting on a SJW tard. Let us know which pic you want for the default. Thanks! The official LynXchan andmin team

Hi, just thought i would show you this. I used the right version of node this time so it didnt give me all the errors, but it still gives a warning that anything under bcrypt 2.0 has a wrap around bug? Just thought i would show you this. Thanks

Cat Board owner 09/22/2018 (Sat) 13:18:16 Id: 45683b No. 619
I know that.

hi, one last stupid question then i will try irc lke you said for other questions. So to get LynxChan, i used git clone https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan.git but that gives 2.0.11 so i went and looked around and see that 2.0.x is at the git directory

but what do i run to get the 2.0.x version and not the 2.0.11 version? Thanks so much for answering all the questions.

Cat 09/22/2018 (Sat) 00:23:30 Id: 282e0f No. 614
so i did

git clone https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan.git

it worked, but to make sure, is that the right one??? Thanks

disregard this thread, i got it now, thanks

version control Cat 09/21/2018 (Fri) 19:09:25 Id: 963e0b No. 608 [Reply]
sorry 4 the dumb question, im new. So really, people are not supposed to use version 2 and up? That's what ive been doing with node 10. So i notice the latest "stable" is 1.9.13 -- so that version is really what im supposed to be using? I notice that one says to stick to node 8.

Cat 09/21/2018 (Fri) 19:14:31 Id: 963e0b No. 609
also, so i installed LynxChan 2.0.11 and i notice i can never see the ip's of anyone and the reporting function did not work at all. Is that because it is development mode? It is confusing, i see other people online run LynxChan version 2 and above, so thats what i thought ppl are supposed to use.

Cat Board owner 09/21/2018 (Fri) 19:44:31 Id: 01f54d No. 611
The latest stable is 2.0. 2.1 is the unstable on master. You are supposed to be using either 1.9 or 2.0. Preferably 2.0. You have those issues with 2.0.11 because of some other issue. Im running 2.0 here and I can see any ip if it's there and I can report just fine.

Cat 09/21/2018 (Fri) 19:49:37 Id: 963e0b No. 612
>>611 ok, thanks! i did not realize that.

bcrypt Cat 09/20/2018 (Thu) 20:57:58 Id: 4fb3fc No. 586 [Reply]
hi! Every time i do the install script, it gives an error that the bcrypt git repo isn't even there. Your install script is calling for version 1 of bcrypt, and when one does npm install bcrypt you can see that bcrypt is version 3 now, AND 1 has a wrap around security issue. Can you pls update the install script to call the right version of bcrypt? It shits out like 30 bcrypt warnings and errors, and it says the git address where the script is tryig to get bcrypt from does not even exitst. thanks!!

Btw, from bcrypt's readme:
node 10 doesn't work with any bcrypt version before 3.

Cat 09/21/2018 (Fri) 17:59:30 Id: 9ce125 No. 605
>>603 >>602 Okay,thanks. Whenever i reinstall i completely have the server start from scratch. Digital Ocean is awesome, you hit destroy server but then scroll way down it gives the option of setting the image back to original- so its a complete fresh reinstall. Looks like i am not using the right versions, im jumping too far ahead in the node version. Seems to work tho! Im new to lynxchan, slowly learning all about it.

Cat 09/21/2018 (Fri) 18:43:03 Id: ca6e37 No. 606
The most valuable skill you can have is to read the documentation.

Cat 09/21/2018 (Fri) 19:02:17 Id: cfb5c3 No. 607
>>605 right on the git main page it says use version 10.x of node it did not say use version 8

Cat 09/21/2018 (Fri) 19:42:24 Id: ca6e37 No. 610
Of the master branch. On the 2.0.x branch it says 8.
