Probably expected since ./nodebb setup writes config.json any reason why you are runnig ./nodebb setup when you already have a config.json?
I am using NodeBB with redis because mongo was being stupid, so now when i do the ./nodebb setup, here is what pops up:
[[email protected] nodebb]# ./nodebb setup

Welcome to NodeBB!
This looks like a new installation, so you'll have to answer a few questions about your environment before we can proceed.
Press enter to accept the default setting (shown in brackets).

@privateryan that's a deprecation warning which you can safely ignore.

Is there an existing
config.jsonfile? If so
./nodebb setupmight not show anything else. You can delete that file to restart, but you might also need to either choose a different database number for redis to start fresh.
Are you starting NodeBB with
./nodebb start? Try running
./nodebb start -lwhich will show the log and display any errors that occur.
