Not trying to be rude, but is there a reason why you can't use Nginx? If you use Apache you lose some of the advantages that it provides to node and websockets: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/apache-vs-nginx-practical-considerations
[solved] Error running `./nodebb upgrade` when updating from v1.10.1 to v1.10.2
I'm upgrading from NodeBB 1.10.1 to 1.10.2 following the upgrade guide, and run into an error whenever I run
./nodebb upgrade. I followed the steps in the guide without issue (shutdown, backup git fetch/reset), but
./nodebb upgradeerrors out no matter what I do. It appears to be an issue with
firstname.lastname@example.org finding the file
node_modules/sharp/install/libvips, which I can confirm is not on the disk.
I'm not sure how to fix this issue, any advice would be appreciated.
- Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS 4.15.0-39-generic
node -v: v10.13.0
npm -v: 6.4.1
EDIT: I attempted to solve the issue by running
rm -rf node_modules; ./nodebb upgradeand am now getting the following error:
> email@example.com install /var/www/friendos.club/node_modules/benchpressjs > cd rust/benchpress-rs && npm install sh: 1: cd: can't cd to rust/benchpress-rs npm ERR! code ELIFECYCLE npm ERR! errno 2 npm ERR! firstname.lastname@example.org install: `cd rust/benchpress-rs && npm install` npm ERR! Exit status 2
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 upgradeas a standard user.
