@chas Need more info...
Run using ./nodebb dev and post any warnings or errors you get.
Say I have a forum, run for over a year. There are quite a few files in $$NodeBB/public/uploads/files folder. I want to change this folder to other place for the sake of backup our environment, I found a setting called "upload_path``` in config.json, here: https://docs.nodebb.org/en/latest/configuring/config.html, but unfortunately it does not help, is it abandoned or replaced by another setting?
@jiangcaiyang more information please. What are you expecting when changing that setting? What doesn't work?
I have made a test.Set "upload_path" : "/../uploads".However, it reports error.
I found that the path isn't changed.
@PitaJ Maybe that problem is the same as mine.
@a632079 you're correct, it does appear that the uploads dir isn't applying in that case. Can you open a new issue at the NodeBB GitHub page? It allows us to track these things more easily. Thanks.
@PitaJ Thanks for your patience in dealing with this problem.
