Does the forum logs give an error when it crashes?
Do you have mongo and nginx logs on?
There should be some useful information in one of the logs as to what is happening.
the browser refuses to serve the insecure request to the nodebb plugin site, so the installation of a plugin fails from the admin interface.
a solution could be to simply add a proxy route to nodebb that will proxy the request to the nodebb plugin site.
Can you attach a copy of the error? Our package manager uses SSL so it shouldn't be making an http call...
would appear something is amiss with the plugin site
@julian no vpn, but several filtering extensions:
https everywhere, ad block plus and ghostery
... just a thought, does it work if you turn all of those things off?
I have the exact same issue here, on console have the following issue:
Error parsing plugins : Hostname/IP doesn't match certificate's altnames: "Host: packages.nodebb.org. is not in the cert's altnames: DNS:[domain].com, DNS:www.[domain].com"
