Nodebb backup losts plugins

General Discussion
  • 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?

    @juan-g If I’m not wrong this is only for groups. Anybody can't make subforum both with his own group.

    This is interesting idea for plugin or like a feature for new version of core nodebb.
    Good for wide community forums on autopilot, when owner not have enough time to support all desires of members.

    @PitaJ yep. I can get ads to reload fine, the ads work as well. But without synchronous ad rendering the UX is somewhat fucked up.

    Hey there! Love nodebb and the awesome potential of using it as my forum solution.

    However, I have been noticing something odd? Whenever I try to click on a hyperlink, sometimes it appears the link doesn't work. It's not broken and doesn't lead to a 404. Rather, I click it and it does the same behavior if I clicked a link that was linked to an empty anchor of some kind. eg:

    <a href="#">A link</a>

    Wish I could show this behavior; it's difficult to describe. The link works if I right-click it and open it in a new tab or window. It's happened in the past while perusing this forum and it happened just now again when I tried to click on "Google analytics code not installed" in the unread list of topics.

    My specs: Google Chrome Version 39.0.2171.65 m on Windows 8.1

    EDIT: The same topic is back in my unread list/page and the same behavior is happening. Trying to click it but the link is 'lame' and won't work. Only right-clicking and opening in a new tab allows me to access it.
