Problem installing plugins

General Discussion
  • Im running into a problem here, just installed the youtube embed plugin and had to restart the server to make it work, now im trying to install the adsense plugin but when i click activate, it shows a mensage saying its restarting, after that if i reload the page it shows a option under plugins for it with a blank page, i then try to restart nodebb with ./nodebb stop and get this:

    Stopping NodeBB. Goodbye!
    cat: pidfile: No such file or directory
    kill: usage: kill [-s sigspec | -n signum | -sigspec] pid | jobspec ... or kill -l [sigspec]

    if i try with npm stop i get this:

    npm ERR! [email protected] stop: `./nodebb stop`
    npm ERR! Exit status 1
    npm ERR!
    npm ERR! Failed at the [email protected] stop script.
    npm ERR! This is most likely a problem with the nodebb package,
    npm ERR! not with npm itself.

    the debug.log file shows this:

  • @kimikelku At the moment, is your NodeBB running?

    This message (cat: pidfile: No such file or directory) usually means that NodeBB is not running, although if you can still access the site, it is possible that NodeBB may be running on its own.

    You can check by running ps aux | grep "nodejs ./app", if it is running, it would look something like this:

    [email protected]:~$ ps aux | grep "nodejs ./app"
    julian   10922  5.6  1.6 1009344 101960 ?      Sl   14:11   0:02 /usr/bin/nodejs ./app -d start
    julian   10962  0.0  0.0  13584   952 pts/3    S+   14:12   0:00 grep --color=auto nodejs ./app

    The top entry denotes a running orphaned NodeBB instance. In this case, I'd terminate it by calling kill -15 10922

  • The instance now properly starts and restarts but the plugin still doesn't show any option, just a blank page, im on latest version of nodebb, is it incompatible?

  • The adsense plugin by @dove?

  • Sorry for the delay, yes that is the plugin im using.

  • Ok not sure why this is happening but at school i can see the options for the adsense plugin, here at home it gives me just a blank page.

  • What happens if you go here:

    At both school and home? Are the results different?

  • Tomorrow i can test it at school, at home it says it works.
