Sorry to hear that, it sounds like you will need to restore your forum from backup
After many attempts of trying to get NodeBB installed I finally did it only to get this ERROR message:
"Looks like your connection to NodeBB was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect."
I looked up this ERROR message and it looks like it's a common issue:
I tried changing around the config.json file but it doesn't work.
Anyone know what to do?
I had the same issue once upgrading my nodebb installation from v1.4.2 to v1.5.1
The trick that worked out for me was to remplace the ip address in the "url" segment by my domain name in the config.json file.
Have you tried that out?
changing for example,
"url": "http://localhost:4800", or "http://124.129.xxx.36:4800"
@taloche Thank you! I will try this out.
