@eesty what is the company policy?
It seems it would probably be cheaper to not migrate from NodeBB but have us host it for you as a vendor.
That is what happened to the FusionAuth forum 🙂
Few days ago installed a nodebb instance on "test" subdomain of the url where my actual forum should reside. Today decided to run the install on the main adress too. After
npm install --production I got a message that npm found 31 vulnerabilities (4 low, 25 moderate, 1 high, 1 critical). Did run
npm audit fix as specified and finished after nodebb setup.
The forum admin on the main adress gives me the warning that I have the version 1.5.3 and should upgrade to v1.10.1. Stopped nodebb did
./nodebb upgrade rebuild it, started again but I still get the message that I'm on the 1.5.3 version. Looking at the other, installed previously and I get the message that is on the version 1.5.3 too. But as far as I remember installed that one, don't know how, with the latest version back then.
If someone could give me a little help it would be much appreciated.
./nodebb upgrade doesn't actually upgrade the source files of NodeBB. Follow the instructions at https://docs.nodebb.org/configuring/upgrade/
@PitaJ Seend that in the meantime. After I have been through every possible error and hell discoveread that I was following the doc from readthedocs instead of the official updated one. What I just did when installing the other instance few days ago.
Now I have the latest NodeBB installed. But after I started it had to update my Nginx config file, restarted Nginx and after the Nginx restart the Nodebb doesn't want to start anymore. I can acces my website, looks as it should but doesn't load anything( admin, topics...) and ./nodebb status gives me the response that is not started I don't know what could be wrong.
Problem solved. For this topic to be any usefull at all:
Run into first problem trying to point and click install 2 nodebb instances( test and the actual) on the same server and obviously, both couldn't listen on the same 4567 port.
Second, did the second install from the old docs on readthedocs instead of the official ones from nodebb.
Third, forgot to also add php-fpm directives to my Nginx config. And start Mongodb.
