  • What happens when you try node app?

  • It works. So I don't know why the ./nodebb start command does not.
    Anyway I think it's fixed but kinda weird.

  • What about running ./nodebb start does that work? AFAIK all npm start does is read what to do from package.json and execute that. In this case we have

     "scripts": {
        "start": "./nodebb start",
        "stop": "./nodebb stop",
        "test": "mocha ./tests -t 10000"

    In package.json so it runs ./nodebb start

  • Running ./nodebb start opens up the windows explorer asking for an application to open the file.

  • Try running bash first
