    @omega Unlikely it was hacked, it's low profile forum.

    Cannot GET /
    

    Is it Express error output? Why would Express suddenly start to be unhappy about the environment?..

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @baris any ideas what would be the most useful place in the main app to put the console.log to troubleshoot Express, why it does not blurp output?

  • Global Moderator Plugin & Theme Dev

    @nicolas that is an express error, which is why I recommended reinstalling dependencies. I'm guessing this was just caused by a random file corruption that's only visible in production mode.

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @pitaj is it possible? Does Express mutate its source files?

    Touching Node Modules with such an old Node version without lock file can become very deadly for the forum and current setup.

  • NodeBB

    The files in node_modules could change if someone installs a plugin in the ACP. Does this affect all routes? Does loading something like forum.com/api/config work?

    What active plugins do you have?

  • Global Moderator Plugin & Theme Dev

    @nicolas huh? Mutating source files? I'm talking about cosmic rays flipping bits here.

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @baris /api/config - does not work.

    $ curl localhost:8081/api/config
    Cannot GET /api/config

    /api/config in Dev Mode - works

  • Admin

    @nicolas though I don't want to immediately suggest you upgrade from NodeBB v1.0.2 (that's a LONG time ago! haha... welcome back btw!)

    I wonder if you ran npm i etc and that upgraded you to packages that are no longer compatible with that version of core

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    I did not do npm install, I deactivated at this point 2 plugins that could depend on external services like Captcha and Twitch Monitor.

    Here is an example of Express, if I would install node modules likely express would update also:

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    Any ideas why ./nodebb start does not work, and ./nodebb dev works?
    Anything I could do to rebuild something in a less harmful way to try ./nodebb start?
    Any suggestions why Express does not work in production mode?

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    So I'm debugging Express, in production, Route registration does not happen. For example, in debug mode I see logs like:

      express:router:layer new / +0ms
      express:router:route get /api/user/:userslug/settings +0ms
      express:router:layer new / +0ms
      express:router:route get /api/user/:userslug/settings +0ms
      express:router:layer new / +0ms
      express:router:route get /api/user/:userslug/settings +0ms
      express:router:layer new / +0ms

      express:router:layer new /user/:userslug/session/:uuid +0ms
      express:router:route delete /user/:userslug/session/:uuid +0ms
    

    But in production mode I can see only initial Express operations:

      express:application set "etag fn" to [Function: wetag] +1ms

      express:application set "cache" to true +1ms
      express:application set "minification" to true +0ms
    

    That is why even the basic root route does not work since none of them are registered. Any hints where to look next?

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @psychobunny @baris what am I risking by running forum as NODE_ENV=development ./nodebb start? 😇

  • Global Moderator Plugin & Theme Dev

    My guess is corrupted files. You can try setting up a new nodebb instance with a copy of your database.

    Since it's affected by node_env it could be a nodebb file that was corrupted. Have you tried using git to detect a file diff?

    Running with an ancient version of NodeBB is probably more dangerous than running in development mode. Might make MITM a little more likely.

  • NodeBB

    Can you post the output of git status as well?

    You can always add console.logs into src/routes.js and webserver js to debug.

  • Global Moderator Plugin & Theme Dev

    You might also want to try git diff --name-status HEAD^ as git status uses file size and modification time.

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @baris Git Status

    $ git status
    On branch v1.x.x
    Your branch is up-to-date with 'origin/v1.x.x'.
    nothing to commit, working directory clean
    

    @PitaJ Git DIff is package.json only. Likely because I have plugins.

  • NodeBB

    I am not sure if 1.0.2 has ./nodebb plugins command but if it has run that and paste the output. If it doesn't have that command you can run the following in mongodb cli db.objects.find({_key: "plugins:active"});

    Also put a console.log here and check if it is triggered in dev and ./nodebb start.

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    @baris plugins command output:

    $ ./nodebb plugins

    Interesting, any of these plugins interact with external services maybe? That is why it's stopped working. If no changes to local plugins like my ("NS") or others, it should still work without any issues.

    As for console.log, it's triggered for ./nodebb dev, but it is not triggered for ./nodebb start
