0.4.2. admin panel cant't save & ajaxify app undefined

  • using 0.4.2 admin panel clicking save is unresponsive, seems like javascript are not initiated. and ajaxify app is undefined

    Uncaught ReferenceError: app is not defined ajaxify.js?v=v0.3.2-1550-g7f6ae6d:273

    ive already upgraded to the latest npm package which fixed the ajaxify.js bug on the homepage.

    It sounds like the minified javascript file does not compile properly. Can you run NodeBB in development mode ./nodebb dev and let me know if you run into any errors?

  • @julian during compilation this is the only warning
    warn: [plugins/nodebb-widget-essentials] staticDir is deprecated, use staticDirs instead

    i've also set it up one directory up so /forum, when trying to login it redirects the user to /user/name instead of /forum/user/name

    Ah! A subfolder install!

    Those are not so well supported by NodeBB (though @planner knows I've tried)... best bet is to stick with a subdomain install (e.g. forum.yourdomain.com) if at all possible.

    If you're insistent, we can take a look -- what is "relative_path" set to in your config.json?

  • @julian

        "base_url": "http://localhost",
        "port": "4567",
        "use_port": true,
        "secret": "hidden",
        "bind_address": "",
        "database": "redis",
        "redis": {
            "host": "",
            "port": "6379",
            "password": "",
            "database": "1"
        "bcrypt_rounds": 12,
        "upload_path": "/public/uploads",
        "relative_path": "/forum"

    im planning to connect my user database to this nodebb later, and didnt want to shell out another server, can check it. http://yako.io/forum.

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    hm... and your nginx config?

    • base_url should be http://yako.io
    • use_port should be false

  • @julian

    upstream app_nodebb {
            server localhost:4567;
            location /forum {
                    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
                    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
                    proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
                    proxy_set_header X-Nginx-Proxy true;
                    proxy_pass http://app_nodebb/forum;
                    proxy_redirect off;
                    # Socket.IO Support
                    proxy_http_version 1.1;
                    proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
                    proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";

    @clinraus Awesome -- looks like it is set up perfectly. The issue on the admin end is probably a bug on our end.

    Feel free to follow along at #1497

  • @julian said:

    Subfolder install ACP inaccessible

    should also add in login redirect issues with subfolder
