[new installation] im getting an error when trying to start nodebb.service


  • Gamers

    So im following the nodebb installation for ubuntu step by step and when i reached to the step where you start the nodebb service, i first ran sudo service nodebb start and received no errors whatsoever. But when i ran sudo service nodebb status

    This is what i got:

    Any idea on what's going on?



  • It's works now ? Have you tried visit your url?

    I cant at the moment since I didn't add the nginx config file for nodebb (which could be a bit challenging since im not that experienced with such things)

    I will give it a try though



  • @apple-pro cd to your nodebb directory and try ./nodebb log
    If you did't see any errors be throwed, you just have already started it .

    Ok when i visit the url, i get the 502 bad gateway error which shows that nodebb is indeed not running.

    I think there's something wrong in my nodebb.service file, can you please send me what should be in there

    Ok so i bypassed systemd and just ran ./nodebb start and the forum worked..... But as soon as I restarted nodebb from the admin dashboard, i kept getting this when visiting the forum:

  • Have you tried run ./nodebb setup or ./nodebb build? It seems that it did't build the static files.
