• Hi everyone,

    I am running a community forum (10k users, 15k topics) on a very old version of nodebb:
    You are running NodeBB v0.7.3. A new version (v1.15.0-beta.29) has been released. Consider upgrading your NodeBB.

    Upgrade procedure

    You'll have to perform a mix of old-style and new-style upgrading to get to the latest version. This will be a little complicated.

    1. Backup your database and uploads
    2. Install Node 10 locally, it should be compatible with everything
    3. Make a local copy of your database and NodeBB for experimenting
    4. Edit the local config.json to point to the database copy

    All further operations should be performed on the experimental copy

    1. Pre-check
      a. Start your local copy of NodeBB
      b. Make sure it is working like the old one
    2. Disable all plugins, then Stop NodeBB
    3. Prepare for Old-Style Upgrade
      a. Check the output of git status. It should say "nothing to commit, working tree clean"
      b. If there are any changes, run the following to reset to upstream: git checkout HEAD -- .
      c. If there are any untracked files, delete them
      d. git pull to get the latest on the v0.7.x branch
    4. Execute Old-Style upgrade to v1
      a. git checkout v0.8.x
      b. ./nodebb upgrade
      c. git checkout v0.9.x
      d. ./nodebb upgrade
      e. git checkout v1.x.x
      f. ./nodebb upgrade
    5. Execute New-Style upgrade to latest
      a. git checkout v1.14.x
      b. ./nodebb upgrade

    Now it should be upgraded. Start NodeBB and check that it's running correctly. Let me know if you run into any issues during the process.


  • @PitaJ Thank you so much, I could not ask for a better reply. I owe you one 🍺
    I will find time and courage and tackle this soon.
    Again thank you (I will report back if it was a success or a disaster)


  • @pitaj I was able to upgrade to v0.8.x, but trying to go to v0.9.x

    npm ERR! code ETARGET
    npm ERR! notarget No matching version found for ansi-styles@2.2.0.
    npm ERR! notarget In most cases you or one of your dependencies are requesting
    npm ERR! notarget a package version that doesn't exist.
    

    Any idea, the package lwip is causing me a lot of trouble too (had to run --unsafe-perm to be able to build it, but not sure if it's related).

  • Admin NodeBB

    @patrick-sébastien-coulombe We no longer use lwip, so you might be able to just remove it from package.json and continue with the upgrade.


  • @baris Thank you, I was able to upgrade to v0.9.x (getting there). I am facing this error when trying to use any version of node > 4 (I know).

    child_process.js:435
        throw new ERR_INVALID_ARG_TYPE('options.cwd', 'string', options.cwd);
        ^

        at FSReqWrap.args [as oncomplete] (fs.js:140:20)
    

    I read that it's because of running a daemon or something like that. Someone suggested to edit loader.js and did just that: https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/commit/568b2b995735fdb4381509bb4b20b0795561fcd0

    But now the error is:

    fs.js:128
      throw new ERR_INVALID_CALLBACK();
      ^
    
    TypeError [ERR_INVALID_CALLBACK]: Callback must be a function
        at maybeCallback (fs.js:128:9)

        at FSReqWrap.args [as oncomplete] (fs.js:140:20)
    

    I think I am stuck.

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    @patrick-sébastien-coulombe You said you have successfully upgraded to v0.9.x, so what are you trying now, just to run NodeBB to test?

    You could probably just continue the upgrade at this point...


  • Hi @julian,

    Good idea, from v0.9.x to v1.x.x I get this error when running the upgrade:

    @patrick-sébastien-coulombe and ./nodebb upgrade finished successfully on v0.9.x?

    Edit: share the output of git status too


  • @pitaj Yes v0.9.x = Success when runninng the upgrade command (but was not able to launch nodebb as stated). So switched to v1.x.x:

    @patrick-sébastien-coulombe hmm. Looks like v1.x.x is actually at 1.4.6.

    Try this:

    • git checkout v1.0.3
    • ./nodebb upgrade

    Then continue from step 9.


  • @pitaj Almost there! Branch is v1.14.x, when running ./nodebb upgrade I get rdb.connect is not a function.

    Proceed with upgrade (y|n)? y

    @patrick-sébastien-coulombe did the npm install portion of the upgrade complete successfully? Can you provide the full output of the upgrade?

    @patrick-sébastien-coulombe why are you running as root/sudo? unsafe-perm shouldn't be necessary.

    Anyways, I think that issue is fixed in this commit: https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/commit/29e3ab247d336220cdddd123fc8703a3a97b1013

    So run git cherry-pick 29e3ab247d336220cdddd123fc8703a3a97b1013 to pull that fix in.

    @patrick-sébastien-coulombe try running ./nodebb build (hopefully it'll complete successfully, if not show the errors here) then re-running the upgrade again.
