nodebb-plugin-write-api failing to load admin page
I am running NodeBB v1.4.2 fronted by NginX and trying to play with the write-api plugin. I installed the plugin following the instructions from https://github.com/NodeBB/nodebb-plugin-write-api restarted NodeBB, activated the plugin and restarted NodeBB again.
I can see a new entry in the Plugins menu saying "Write API". Please see image:
However, when I clicked on "Write API", it led to a non-existing page:
I am not really sure what I am doing wrong here. Can someone please help?
Thanks in advance!
try to reload -> restart.
or use './nodebb build' if it not work well.
one of them save my life with newest version of nodebb
Thank you @Iamt2a. I tried all those, but no luck so far :-(.
./nodebb build, not rebuild.
Do I need to rerun nodebb build each time I install a plugin outside of the UI? I was hesitant because I thought since the build script changes the state of the db, there is a chance I might lose data. Should I back up my db each time before I run nodebb build?
@tin The build process does not touch the database at all
Thanks @julian! Works now. Seems like we'll have to rerun build each time we npm install a new plugin
