I fixed my own issue. Apparently some install scripts fail when run as root (or with sudo). I'm not sure why this is the case, but I got everything to work by running sudo chown -R ralph:www-data /path/to/nodebb && ./nodebb upgrade as a standard user.
SOLVED change from http://oldsite.com to http://newsite.com

Hello, I have a website but the URL is going to change in december. Is it possible with NodeBB of do I need to reinstall the software or something?
All you should really need to do is change the
urlvalue in config.json and change the server name in your reverse proxy.
