Nodebb backup losts plugins

  • Upgrading NodeBB — NodeBB 1.x documentation

    Hi, I planed to move nodebb from digitalocean to vultr, and I followed the guide, backup and restored the mongodb and /uploads.
    However, after I installed and built nodebb on vultr, the installed plugins are missing. Do I have to install them again?
    Is there any way to backup the installed plugins?


  • @audreybest Aren't the plugins stored in ./nodebb_modules/... ? If you did not backup/restore that directory then yes I believe you will need to reinstall the plugins. The database should have the plugin configuration settings retained though.

  • @rod Thanks, it makes sense. I didn't backup ./nodebb_module dir.
    So ./nodebb_module and ./uploads dirs are basically needed right? Is there any other dir is needed also?

Looks like your connection to NodeBB was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
