DB structure / connection of threads and posts ... post double displayed in different threads

Technical Support
  • Hi all,

    some things about me:
    I am an IT guy, but have nearly no experince with mongo. Used to work with php/mysql, "oldscool"stuff 😉

    Some things about my system:
    Ubuntu 18 Server
    Mongo v3.6.3
    nodeBB v.1.10.0 (latest yesterday)

    I have a notebb forum running, and some weird things happen.
    A post was posted, but is displayed ion two "different" threads.

    Why ❓

    I would like to know how threads and post are connected. Is there any database structure available?

    The "problem record" is in objects.

    _key = post:2952
    pid = 2952
    uid = 10
    tid = 9
    toPid = 2951

    So what for is pid, uid, tid and toPid?

    This record is displayed in:

    • topic/172/zitat-des-tages/37
      and in:
    • topic/9/wanderwochenende/13

    Anybody any clue, why this happens?
    I have none - sorry ...

    Can anybody point me in the right direction?
    Any help highly appreciated.

    Kind regards,

  • pid = the unique post id, this never changes
    uid = the id of the user who posted it, this never changes
    tid = the id of the topic this post is currently in, this changes if the post is moved between topics
    toPid = posts can be direct replies to other posts, in which case this field stores the post which is being replied to

    A post shouldn't be in multiple topics.

  • Hi all,
    thanks for the reply.
    Made the steps & structure clearer to me 😃 👍

    I imported an Backup and the stuff is running like a charm.
    But when I have a look at the logs, I always see stuff like this:

    88.xx.xxx.xx - - [28/Sep/2018:16:47:32 +0000] "GET /error_docs/internal_server_error.html HTTP/1.1" 404 - "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:62.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/62.0"

    If I call directly:

    an error appears, saying:

    • error_docs/internal_server_error.html does not exists. go to startpage.

    But actually the folder structure:

    • /error_docs/internal_server_error.html
      exists in the nodebb "root" folder where the forum is installed.

    Do I have a chance to get to know where this error comes from?

    Would be great resolving this issue!

  • NodeBB does not server files from its root directory, you can put them in the public folder, so your path would be /path/to/nodebb/public/error_docs/internal_server_error.html

  • The most efficient way is to just put them in a separate directory and configure your reverse proxy to serve them statically.

  • @baris
    I just duid that, same result:

    an error appears, saying:
    error_docs/internal_server_error.html does not exists. go to startpage.

  • Does it work if you don't put it in the error_docs/ subfolder?
