# Rebuilding after plugin installation

• Hello to everyone. I have a question.
Installing the plugin, Restarting NodeBB as instructed. However, I have to rebuilding NodeBB every time to access the plugin settings page. Is this normal? Or did I do something wrong while installing.

Thanks.

I followed the instructions mentioned in this article. But I installed nodejs 12 version mondb 4.4 version.

• Okay here's how I've interpreted the sequence of events:

1. You install plugin from ACP
2. You restart NodeBB
3. You try to access plugin page but it doesn't work
4. You perform a rebuild
5. Then you can access the plugin page

Is that correct? You only have to rebuild once for each time you install a plugin?

His interpretation is absolutely correct. Yes, I have to rebuilding nodebb for every plugin.

• This is expected behavior. After installing and activating a plugin, you are supposed to Rebuild & Restart. There's a special button in the ACP to perform this.
