I would suggest not to follow that tutorial. For some reason the tutorial clones NodeBB under /var/www which is not required.
Also you will end up using the master branch of NodeBB which is a development version and is likely to have bugs.
Hi, I've following the install steps https://docs.nodebb.org/installing/os/ubuntu/ and now at the step where I need to run setup. However, when I'm in the /nodebb directory, when ls the directory I can see a green "nodebb" perl script and when I look at the directory in the file manager I can see "nodebb" is in fact there and it shows it as a perl script.
I just ran the following -
dev@dev-vm:~/work/nodebb/nodebb$ ls app.js CHANGELOG.md docker-compose.yml Gruntfile.js LICENSE logs nodebb.bat README.md require-main.js test build commitlint.config.js Dockerfile install loader.js nodebb public renovate.json src dev@dev-vm:~/work/nodebb/nodebb$ nodebb setup nodebb: command not found
Yes I know I have two directories named the same, I created the directory for node before I ran the git clone which created the identical folder as well.
At any rate, I tried running as 'sudo' but according to the docs I've read seems that's not correct way to run nodebb. But, in both cases it says it can't find the program.
Huh? Thanks for any help
./ is necessary.
Ok great, thanks!
