@bnrstnr said in Deploying NodeBB 1.11.1 on CentOS 7 with MongoDB 4:

What specific reasons for the CentOS recommendation here?

Revisiting a little...

Basically the three main Linux releases supported by MongoDB are CentOS, Ubuntu, and Debian. CentOS and Ubuntu here are mostly six of one. But CentOS 8 Stream I like a little more than the Ubuntu LTS options. We use Ubuntu a little more often than CentOS today, but in this case I feel that CentOS is slightly better for us. But really, all three options are perfectly fine. We just have to pick one.
