  • @PitaJ

    I am able to open nodebb on : http://sample.sub-domain.com:4567
    but not https://sample.sub-domain.com

  • Okay see all that is great information to have. Are you invested in using Apache and your reverse proxy? If not, I'd recommend using nginx. It's what all the developers use here.

  • @PitaJ
    I have already paid for the following services :
    1. Os : centos 7
    2. Apache2 (EasyApache4 software in hostgator)

  • First of all, if you paid for Apache, I have to ask why, because it's freely available software.

    If you can't get Apache working I'm sorry, but I can't help you because I don't know much about it. I suggest you ask for help on an Apache-specific forum.

    Nginx is also open source and free to use, so if it is really that important to you I suggest using that.

    I did a fresh install of nodebb using nodebb documentation available at https://docs.nodebb.org/installing/os/centos/

    Along the process after running ./nodebb setup

    1. I was asked to make administrator username , email and password .
    2. Mongo database and password
      So i fill all the details after which i run ./nodebb start

    Then i see nodebb page .
    When i click login and enter my administrator details
    it reroute to same login page and admin portal is not getting opened

    Following are the results :
    1.After browsing http:/subdomain.com:4567

    2.After doing admin login

    3.Now clicking admin

    4.After clicking admin , why it is rerouting to login page and why it's not opening admin dashboard

  • Are there any errors client or server side? What is the URL value in config.json? If it doesn't match where you're logging in, that will cause issues.

    Thanks a lot
    Now everything is working fine

    Previously I was running nodebb version v.10.1 for last 1 year but when I try upgrading it to latest version
    (before which i did mongodump first which results in making dump folder with two subfolders named admin and nodebb),

    it kept me asking to install sharp first, which cannot be installed on centos 6 . So I changed my server to centos 7 .

    Now the status is my new nodebb with latest version is running without my data
    How can i use mongodump , so i can populate my new nodebb version with backup data ( most important )

    Please guide me

  • @Abhinov-Singh-0 what you're looking for is the opposite of mongodump: mongorestore

  • @PitaJ
    Yes sorry , you are right,
    mistyped it by mistake

    Now the status is my new nodebb with latest version is running without my data
    How can i use mongorestore , so i can populate my new nodebb version with backup data ( most important )

    Please guide me

  • @PitaJ
    Do i need to do mongorestore before installing nodebb or can we do it after installing nodebb also ?

  • You can do it after installing, it will replace all the data.
