NodeBB stopped working after 'build' issued
I'm getting an 'internal server error' message when I try to access my NodeBB install...
I checked out v1.11.x through Github. I followed this guide: https://docs.nodebb.org/installing/os/freebsd/
My platform is FreeBSD 12.0 Release, and I have Node version 11.3 running off the Redis DB.
What I was trying to achieve was to install the Facebook authentication plugin; it installed fine and I activated it then restarted NodeBB and then finally refreshed the browser page for the new Admin heading to come up.
It came up fine but I couldn't access it, I just got a spinning wheel with the error: "ID text not found". After reading around I found that some people needed to issue the ./nodebb build command to get things to function. So that's what I did.
This is the log message currently of the system:
at eachOfLimit (/usr/local/www/NodeBB/node_modules/async/dist/async.js:1041:24)
at eachOf (/usr/local/www/NodeBB/node_modules/async/dist/async.js:1117:5)

at next (/usr/local/www/NodeBB/node_modules/async/dist/async.js:5331:9)
If I run the full build command the output is this:
[benchpressjs] Unable to build or find a suitable native module, falling back to JS version

I'm not sure what happened or why it's doing this as I did perform an "npm install" after the install which seemed to be required? as there were things missing and other errors.
I wonder if anyone could help a) get the forum back online and b) get the FB auth plugin functioning??
Hi sorry for the late response!
I used these instructions for install: https://docs.nodebb.org/installing/os/freebsd/
Yeah I did a complete uninstall / reinstall of the plugin but no change.
Currently the site is down so I guess I'll have to remove the directory and run another git clone
