SOLVED New Install - Plugin Page Freezes


  • To be honest I am pretty much done with it.I am for sure not the best technically by a long way, but I am not stupid and can follow instructions to the latter when following the nodebb documentation.

    This is the third time now and again and again it is error after error. This time its the freezing page and now saying that no email sender is installed. It is built in so why is it not there?

    So frustrating...

    @sampo2910 Did you try driving the command

    ./nodebb reset -p nodebb-plugin-emoji
    

    as your nodebb user from your nodebb install directory? Not saying that is the issue but maybe some off chance the plugin incompatibility is triggering a glitch when you hit the plugins page?

    I was also thinking maybe you were running into some resource use limitations but iirc you are on a home box w/plenty of ram and cpu to spare?


  • @sampo2910 Are you sure there is no output from ./nodebb log ?


  • @gotwf I too have this message on two forums, but it's not causing any issues with the plugin page. @Sampo2910 do you have any browser extensions that may be interfering with the execution of JS such as popup blockers etc ?

    I don't see anything about you checking the browser console for errors.

    What version of Node.js are you using?


  • @pitaj 14.7.3

    @phenomlab I am using a box at home yes with plenty of cpu and ram. There is not much on it. Another node application running two game servers and nodebb. Thats it.

    Anyway I have completely removed nodebb db and users from mongo and deleted the directory.

    I will try again from scratch. The first time i installed I never had any problem with that. Maybe I am doing something wrong but I am following the instructions from nodebb docs.

    @sampo2910 Many folks have installed and run NodeBB so I suspect you may have fat fingered something somewhere. You are using Ubuntu? These are the docs you reference, correct?

    Or mayhaps did you follow the guide from the nodebb blog article?

    I suggest you follow the docs guide, record every command you drive, and then, if things are still amiss, we will have something more definitive to work with.

    Good luck and have fun! o/ πŸ•

    Why does everything else on the forum work flawlessly other than that tab…. Highly unlikely I fat fingered something four times.


  • And just for number 5 πŸ™‚ Here I am ..Logged in and have yet to touch anything.

  • Went directly to Admin page and then directly to the find plugins page. Same error in every browser I use. I answered the questions on setup and left everything as it said. Only thing of course I added was admin email and password. Is this something because I am using local machine or what?

    Ah looks like there's a client side JavaScript infinite loop for some reason. What browser are you using?

    Have you tried a different browser?


  • @pitaj as said above multiple browsers. But this was not like this before.

    I have set up the forums again. All no problem navigating, widgets, other plugins.

    But going to extend-plugins-find plugins..FREEZE.

    Also this way plugins-install-plugins FREEZE

    So basically I need to set up the email because I need to install a plugin?? Which i cannot.

    ERROR
    The sendmail executable could not be found, please ensure it is installed and executable by the user running NodeBB.


  • @sampo2910 interesting. I experienced this exact same error message when suddenly my forum would no longer run as daemon.


  • @phenomlab I have just noticed that all is fine ONLY on MS Edge browser I had tried firefox and opera and no good......I am going to uninstall chrome and reinstall and see whats what....If still no good I will have to use edge ( i dont want to)


  • @sampo2910 want to DM me the URL and login ? I can test from here also meaning we can validate if it's a NodeBB issue or not.

  • Global Moderator Plugin & Theme Dev

    @sampo2910 you don't need a plugin for email. You can use the built in SMTP option instead.

    I'll see if I can reproduce.


  • @pitaj I don't use Sendmail either but for the same message when my site suddenly stopped working as daemon. Wondering if there's any parallel here.

  • Global Moderator Plugin & Theme Dev

    @phenomlab I doubt that sendmail has anything to do with the plugin page hanging the browser.

    @Sampo2910 I haven't been able to reproduce yet on Firefox 92.0 or Chromium 92.0 on Linux. What version of Firefox are you using? You're on NodeBB 1.18.3 right?


  • @pitaj Well it is not working with default built in then.

    I input my smtp settings and that was the problem i got. Those smtp settings worked previously.

    And update again...It is NO LONGER WORKING ON MS Edge. Just tried again.

    No idea what this is.

    This was in logs regarding email:

    Error: The sendmail executable could not be found, please ensure it is installed and executable by the user running NodeBB.

  • @pitaj true, but I'm curious to know if the forum actually crashes when this message is generated.
