How to recover from a broken plugin


  • Installed a plugin and it broke my system. Nginx came back with "Broken Gateway" I knew that the problem was that plugin since it was the last thing I did.

    To resolve:

    ./nodebb reset -p plugin-name

    Plugin gets removed and the forum is rebuilt and everything should work again.

    This was my fault, I installed the youtube plugin without reading the notes that said to use the later version 🤕. Moral of the story, read the docs before rushing in 😈

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    To expand on this, you can reset more than plugins!

    ./nodebb reset -t restores the Persona theme. You can specify a theme name to switch to that theme.
