@qwerty yes, after running ./nodebb stop, NodeBB should not be running.
What did you try? Does it work when running with ./nodebb dev?
What is the proper way to copy/clone a theme to make changes to?
I previously copied and pasted nodebb-theme-persona under a different name and modified theme.json. It appeared to work fine until I updated to 1.5.1. For some reason nodebb-theme-persona could not be updated and NodeBB wouldn't start. Finally after deleting my copy I was able to update nodebb-theme-persona.
Should I update plugin.json? Seems out of date when compared to the latest version of Persona
