Latest NodeBB, cannot start process, logs tell nothing



  • I did the latest git pull and tried to start my forum. Logs are fine except the plugin warning:

    I try to access the site but I get a 502 Bad Request. Then I try to reload the forum and it says nodebb isn't started. I do a ./nodebb start and it gets stuck here

    In the event of an unresponsive NodeBB caused by this plugin, run ./nodebb reset plugin="nodebb-plugin-mentions"

    Could be worth a go.



  • @a_5mith tried that it didn't work, any other suggestion?

    @anooxy
    Ummm... Try this way:

    1. Backup your Redis dump.rdb file (see here) & any other modifications you don't want to lose or corrupt (template modifications etc.)

    2. git fetch

    3. git reset --hard

    4. git pull

    5. ./nodebb upgrade



  • @markkus that didn't fix anything, during the upgrade command I got these warnings:

    npm WARN package.json connect-redis@1.4.5 No repository field.
    npm WARN package.json express-namespace@0.1.1 No repository field.
    npm WARN package.json nodebb-plugin-dbsearch@0.0.9 No repository field.
    npm WARN package.json nodebb-plugin-imgur@0.0.14 No repository field.
    npm WARN package.json reds@0.2.4 No repository field.

    Those npm warnings are alright. Can you run it using ./nodebb dev and give me the entire log from start to finish? Use pastebin if you have to 🙂



  • same problem here, ./nodebb dev fails after
    "error: [meta/css] Could not minify LESS/CSS: './nodebb-widget-essentials/css/widget.css' wasn't found"
