@MoJo Ah yeah it looks like you've run into this bug: https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/issues/8515
You'll need to cherry-pick the referenced commit to fix it in your install.
i am currently trying to get Nodebb running on a server. I am following this guide.
guide from another nodebb user
However when doing the last step i get this error.
C:\nginx>nginx -s reload
nginx: [error] CreateFile() "C:\nginx/logs/nginx.pid" failed (2: the system cant find the file)
Since i had a similar error when setting up nodebb i am curios what causes this.
Actually, i still get this error (Process "20576" from pidfile not found, deleting pidfile) every time when i start nodebb locally, but it works properly from what i can say.
Can't speak to nginx, but for NodeBB...
When you start NodeBB via the loader (e.g.
./nodebb start), it saves the process id of the running application in a file called
If those commands are called again, and but the id in that file doesn't correspond to an actual NodeBB process, then that means that NodeBB lost the association. It could mean a lot of things... for example, if the process died some other way (e.g. killed via task manager, OOM, etc.)
