@julian well I was looking for a help right now. Already paid for server and domain. And looking for Adsense so that I can earn what I've invested right now. Thanks for contacting though but I am not looking for paid service right now.
The reason seems to be a bad npm-shrinkwrap.json (listing versions not covered by package.json) @julian
@tomanagle to get it running it's the easiest to remove the npm-shrinkwrap.json and run ./nodebb upgrade once more.
EDIT: Reported on github: gh#4310 Thanks for reporting!
ghost created this issue in NodeBB/NodeBB
v1.x.x outdated shrinkwrap
Maybe you're talking about the build step that's at the end of ./nodebb setup? In that case, you could save copies of the build directory as long as you use the same version of NodeBB and plugins for everywhere you're installing it.
