I don't know if Zeit Now (while really cool!) would work for NodeBB... NodeBB is a web application, and does lots of stuff in the background that relies on a server running. To have a service that spins up whenever a request comes in would be much too slow, if only because that first spin up would take many seconds!
How to go to the admin page when NodeBB running in offline LAN
Hi~ Our team want to run NodeBB as a forum in local area network, but when go to the admin page, the page can't be reached( other page runs well ), and the network error occured like this:
 - error: [acp] Failed to fetch latest version Error: connect ETIMEDOUT 188.8.131.52:443
So does there have any way to go to the admin page when NodeBB in an offline LAN?
@George-Young what version of NodeBB? That error is caught and shouldn't cause any issues.
The error is never passed down, this was fixed a while ago: https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/blob/ff290880e279fbc448c0a9d0271bf11996b0a4f3/src/controllers/admin/dashboard.js#L53
"name": "nodebb", "license": "GPL-3.0", "description": "NodeBB Forum", "version": "1.10.2",
and our nodebb docker image created date is 8 days ago
What is the actual network error you receive when requesting the admin page?
I imagine it's some kind of timeout, right? I also think you should be able to access
/admin/general Not Found You seem to have stumbled upon a page that does not exist. Return to the home page.
@George-Young oops, sorry. I meant
What about my other questions?
@PitaJ /admin/general/navigation & /admin are both timeout
@George-Young ok I'll add a timeout to that call so it doesn't automatically timeout the original request.
@PitaJ Thank you and I will build a new internal image for that commit ~
