FAQ

A few common questions.

[block:api-header] { "type": "basic", "title": "Can I Run Telescope On My Current WordPress/PHP/.NET/etc. Server?" } [/block] No. Telescope runs on Meteor, which itself runs on Node, which is a completely different stack from Apache/PHP/WordPress. Sadly, this means Telescope will not run alongside WordPress apps on shared web hosts, and needs its own server or instance. Check out the [deploying](/docs/getting-started/deploying) section for more information. [block:api-header] { "type": "basic", "title": "I've Deployed My Site But Content Is Not Appearing" } [/block] Telescope stores all user content in a database. And while deploying your app will send over Telescope's *code* to your server, it won't transfer this database. Which is why any content you create locally will stay on your local machine, and won't appear on your server. Note that this also include any **settings** you've defined, since those are also stored in the database. You can transfer your database separately using command line utilities like [`mongodump`](http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/reference/program/mongodump/) and [`mongorestore`](http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/reference/program/mongorestore/). [block:api-header] { "type": "basic", "title": "How Can I Change My Twitter/Facebook/etc. OAuth Credentials?" } [/block] OAuth credentials are stored in your database.
