Re: [nodebb-plugin-ns-embed] NS Embed
@The-Worms said in [nodebb-plugin-ns-embed] NS Embed:
commands like git and ./nodebb should not be used with root access (sudo or elevated privileges). It will cause problems with different ownership of files NodeBB needs access to
Ok thank you - I'll create a sudo user and then re-run the installation from scratch.
Ok I tried that but same problem. I used sudo where applicable but was logged in as root, is that ok? I'm not so familiar with privileges in Linux and wasn't thinking about implications of not using sudo.
Therefore I may have missed sudo in previous in re-builds and re-install but this time I was very careful to apply it as outlined as per advice and also the documentation for installing nodebb. I read a little harder.
Right now, I'm starting to wonder if this is a versioning issue - my original but separate nodebb installations (each stack was not exactly the same) had no issues with plugins.
Therefore I've been trying to think what did I do differently other than forgetting to use sudo when I re-installed or rebuilt the stacks.
The only thing I can think of right now is I might have used older versions of maybe redis, but more so and older versions of node.js but I think I always used the latest nodebb (1.11.x)
I might try to re-create the setups dropping back versions of the various components but keeping it at nodeBB 1.11x .
- I decided to fork this topic as I don't want to crowd out useful ns-embed-plugins specific information as my issue is wider as it affects any new plugin installed!
