Hiring only local triggers what's known as the "church problem" in business. Hiring someone from your church statistically provides the worst work. Psychologists say that this is because of two reasons. The first is just math, you eliminate 99.9999% of the world and try to pull an expert from a tiny pool. The second is that you prioritize locality or membership in a small group over skill, reputation, or ability to do the work. That alone is bad enough, bit picking someone for that reason also tells them that their value to you is because of who they are, what they are a member of, or where they live - which is another way of telling them that doing a good job at a good price isn't important to do. When you make someone believe that their value is already provided simply because of who they are, there is literally no incentive to do a good job and, in fact, a pretty heavy suggestion that they can overcharge and under-deliver and it won't be a problem because they've provided their value already simply in being whoever they are.
Upgrading NodeBB from v1.5.2 to v1.9.3

I logged in tonight to try and upgrade my NodeBB version but when I log into my Ubuntu server it doesn't allow me to access any files/directories. I know that I have root/SU access. The install was done by someone through NodeBB but none of the prompts shown in the NodeBB documentation will work when I follow along with them.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
The folder is probably named
cd /home/nodebb/nodebbto go to the installation directory. If that gives the same error you can list the contents of the
/home/nodebbdirectory by the
lscommand and find out the real name of the nodebb installation directory.
