NodeBB plugin is active but not installed

Unsolved Plugin Development
  • I recently deployed my NodeBB in a docker container, and install the plugin locally by copying my plugin into node_modules directory.
    When I started the NodeBB server, I got this message:

    2023-01-24T08:59:05.922Z [4567/181] - warn: [plugins] "nodebb-plugin-my-plugin" is active but not installed.
    

    This is my Dockerfile content:

    FROM node:16.14.0
    
    RUN mkdir -p /usr/src/app &&  chown -R node:node /usr/src/app
    WORKDIR /usr/src/app
    RUN apt-get install git
    
    ARG NODE_ENV
    ENV NODE_ENV $NODE_ENV
    
    COPY --chown=node:node install/package.json /usr/src/app/package.json
    
    USER node
    
    COPY --chown=node:node . /usr/src/app
    
    RUN npm install --only=prod && npm cache clean --force
    RUN git clone https://bitbucket.org/dev/nodebb-plugin-my-plugin.git
    RUN cp -r nodebb-plugin-my-plugin node_modules/
    
    ENV NODE_ENV=production \
        daemon=false \
        silent=false
    
    EXPOSE 4567
    
    USER root
    RUN chown root:root ./ -R
    
    CMD node ./nodebb activate nodebb-plugin-my-plugin; node ./nodebb build; node ./nodebb start -l
    

    The plugin was successfully installed when I run it without docker container.
    Please give me some suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    Can you take a look at the runtime logs (sorry, I'm not fluent with Docker) and see what happens at the CMD node ./nodebb activate nodebb-plugin-my-plugin; node ./nodebb build; node ./nodebb start -l step?

    It sounds like maybe when ./nodebb start -l is run, NodeBB is doing another dependency install, which can happen if it detects some dependencies as out of date. That would effectively clobber your plugin that was copied into node_modules/
