@Febian This mean you need to install all neccesary software components on your server and after that just copy databasefiles & the nodebb files to it and fire it up.
Just screwed my NodeBB installation
I'm very new to NodeBB. Just installed two days ago.
Wanted to have the bleeding edge NodeBB to try Blue Posts plugin and I screwed it up
What I did?
I pulled the repository as this.
on my NodeBB root directory.
I guess that wasn't the right procedure to update. Now I get this when trying to start NodeBB:
./nodebb dev [after some other OK messages] module.js:340 throw err; ^ Error: Cannot find module 'templates.js' at Function.Module._resolveFilename (module.js:338:15) at Function.Module._load (module.js:280:25) at Module.require (module.js:364:17) at require (module.js:380:17) at Object.<anonymous> (/home/mauricio/nodebb/src/emailer.js:7:14) at Module._compile (module.js:456:26) at Object.Module._extensions..js (module.js:474:10) at Module.load (module.js:356:32) at Function.Module._load (module.js:312:12) at Module.require (module.js:364:17) [loader] Experienced three start attempts in 10 seconds, most likely an error on startup. Halting.
Please, can anybody point me to the right procedure to update to bleeding edge from repo the next time?
And if is not too much to ask: How could I fix this besides reinstalling NodeBB again?
I think @psychobunny recently added the templates.js module into package.json. So you will have to run
npm installin the nodebb directory. Then try starting again.
@baris It worked!
npm install [other stuff] firstname.lastname@example.org node_modules/templates.js
Thanks very much!
Just saw I should started here: Upgrading NodeBB
Leave it for future newbies.
