OK thanks again. Sorted now.
Such a noob. Put its slowly getting easier 🙂
Appreciate the help.
@baris I've upgraded my forum to 1.17 according to the upgrade script output, but admin panel still reports 1.16.2.
What is the matter and what logs should I explore?
@twissell have you restarted NodeBB?
@pitaj Yes, I've done restart many times, no effect.
As well as full rebuild.
@twissell what's the output of
version: 1.16.2 Node ver: v16.0.0 git hash: 023e4cfcee208a0bae121a6e343a8c53009fd090 database: mongo version: 4.4.5 engine: wiredTiger
That's weird enough...so how can I execute update procedure step by step and/or debug it?
I also ran my first upgrade with 1.17 and had the same problem. The solution was: I have to run the upgrade with the user nodebb is running under. For me this is the user "nodebb" so "su nodebb" and then start the upgrade script. If you run it as root, you may have to reassign the files to the user, e.g. "chown -R nodebb:nodebb *" in the appropriate folder. But beware, I am a nodebb beginner myself and found this out only by try-and-error. For me it worked like this.
@twissell We don't support Node 16 yet, you might need to downgrade your npm version.
What commands did you execute to upgrade? It doesn't look like you pulled the latest changes from git.
Using sudo and from domain's as well, result is the same.
Script reports success on upgrade, but version doesn't change.
You need to pull the latest changes from git like
git fetch git checkout v1.17.x ./nodebb upgrade
@pitaj You are right,
git checkout version and nodejs downgrade did the trick.
Thanks a lot!
