You must run git pull before running ./nodebb upgrade.
SOLVED Upgrade Error 1.17.2 to 1.18.1
Upgrade error. Followed instructions here: https://docs.nodebb.org/configuring/upgrade/
But now i get this :
install/package.json: needs merge
src/socket.io/user/profile.js: needs merge
error: you need to resolve your current index first
Any ideas please folks
error: Merging is not possible because you have unmerged files.
hint: Fix them up in the work tree, and then use 'git add/rm <file>'
hint: as appropriate to mark resolution and make a commit.
fatal: Exiting because of an unresolved conflict.
Oh boy those instructions look bad. I'll have to go fix them soon. What's the output of
@pitaj thx for reply
On branch v1.18.x
Your branch is up to date with 'origin/v1.18.x'.
You have unmerged paths.
(fix conflicts and run "git commit")
(use "git merge --abort" to abort the merge)
(use "git add <file>..." to mark resolution)
both modified: install/package.json
both modified: src/socket.io/user/profile.js
no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")
I used the git add for the two conflicts.
'git status' then said conflicts were fixed.
I then used git reset --hard origin/v1.18.x
then ./nodebb upgrade
And started the forum. All ok and now using 1.18.1
Thanks for a shove in right direction Could be right or wrong way but it's working
I am starting to feel stupid....
Every time i try to upgrade using this link: https://docs.nodebb.org/configuring/upgrade/
ends in errors!
There is update 1.18.1 to 1.18.2 so not between branches.
I stop the forum. CD to my nodebb directory.
ON that page it clearly says
$ git fetch
$ git reset --hard origin/v1.12.x # Replace v1.12.x with the branch name!
I get a return of
fatal: ambiguous argument 'origin/v1.18.2x': unknown revision or path not in the working tree.
Use '--' to separate paths from revisions, like this:
'git <command> [<revision>...] -- [<file>...]'
