cPanel [Aug 10]

:raising_hand_man: jackdio asked

Hi Everyone, I’m literally brand new to nocodb and I’m just looking for some help please. I’ll start by saying I’m not a developer, my web skills go as far as wordpress.org and a bit of Google Apps Script but node.js/Docker etc I have no experience with. Basically I use Google Sheets as a database with some custom Apps Script to do some clever stuff but due to the script quota limitations from Google I’m constantly having issues and have thus outgrown Google Sheets. In my quest to find a replacement I came across NocoDB which to be fair just looks Awesome and could possibly be the replacement I’ve been looking for - I basically want to build a web database with spreadsheet-like functionality and maybe some bells & whistles. Unfortunately for me as a none-developer with basic web knowledge I’ve fallen at the first hurdle of being able to install the App. I currently have a web host with my domain names and this uses CPanel, Is it possible to install nocoDB via CPanel to my web host or is Docker/Heroku the only way?

u can use it as a nodejs app in cPanel. see GitHub - nocodb/nocodb-seed

Hi, did you successfully installed it on Cpanel ? I tried nocodb-seed and npm, it seems to install it but I’m struggling to synchronize Url and ports within the “Setup Node.JS App” module of Cpanel.

jackdio@discord Hi, did you successfully installed it on Cpanel ?

:person_tipping_hand: o1lab replied

Which platform are u using?

:raising_hand_man: Limesle replied

Hey ! I’m using a French local provider that uses CPanel

:raising_hand_man: Limesle replied

In this install I tried the module Setup Node.JS App and nocodb-seed

:raising_hand_man: Limesle replied

I fear that I’m facing a CPanel setup issue more than anything to do with nocoDB

:raising_hand_man: Limesle replied

In fact I can’t reach the URL as nocoDB is setup for a 8080 local access and CPanel is pushing on a subdomain URL

Can you see the log?

:raising_hand_man: Limesle replied

On the terminal, after I launch npm run start, I have :

select * from nc_api_tokens

Visit : localhost:8080/dashboard

:raising_hand_man: Limesle replied

Can you remind me the name of the log file ?

:person_tipping_hand: o1lab replied

There is no logfile. However, it looks good.
