I am trying to make a NodeBB forum instance on Replit and can't figure out how to get Redis to work. Now, I'm stuck.

Nodebb was made to use redis, so if you can't use redis, unfortunately that means nodebb can't be used on replit.

Do note that you have to make the IP 0.0.0.0:8080 if that helps.

Anyways, you can also try MongoDB which is also a nice database that has been working on replit.

Please don't configure your own database or make an admin account instead of helping.
