Nodebb buttons don't Work

  • Any buttons like new topic, or reply fail to load, and even running in dev mode I don't see any errors.

    I've tried to reinstall and upgrade but nothings working.

  • What version of NodeBB are you running?
    What OS are you running it on?
    Is this an issue that has occurred on an existing install, or on a new one?

  • It started when I tried to upgrade a 4.2 install to 4.3.

    I have since tried reinstalling several times, and even completely blowing it away and restarting.

    It's running on nginx and ubuntu 14.04

  • @Punkbob, when you were upgrading, did you follow these steps?

  • Yes, explicitly over and over.

    What version is nginx? It may not be new enough (needs to be > 1.3.13)

  • I have the same problem, new install no upgrade.

    nodebb v0.5.0-4
    Using Apache on a CentOS.
    node.js version v0.10.30

    In the admin panel all is working very well.

  • I also have the same issue. New install v0.5.0 although I may have missed a step in the install process.

    NodeBB v0.5.0
    node.js v0.10.32
    Redis 2.8.4 32bit
    Ubuntu 14.04 32bit

    edit - the admin panel is working

    I'm running a digital ocean test droplet. Nginx and Apache are only required for proxy requests, correct?

  • I figured out my problem. I set up forever incorrectly. I think somehow after a server reboot it didn't load NodeBB the way it should. Is this possible? I built maybe 20 instances to figure out what caused my problem.

    Thanks for the hard work on the project!

    @parvan Thanks for checking back in! 🙂

  • Hmmm, it seems to have broke again. It will run for a while without issues and then I will come back in an hour and the buttons don't work. It's strange.

    Check your browser and server console for any errors.

  • I'm checking back in from a while ago. Since the first post I've moved VPS's from digital ocean to ovh and now I'm moved to vpsdime. I highly recommend them. They say the large storage vps IO is too slow for production but so far it has seriously been 10x faster in disk benchmarks and 20% faster in cpu calculations.

    Anyway, back to what I was going to say.

    I started nodebb using a root cron
    @reboot forever start /home/blue/nodebb/app.js
    turns out this gave me the button errors.
    This method works without issues
    @reboot cd /home/blue/nodebb && forever start app.js

    Interesting huh? Hopefully this helps someone avoid the headaches I've encountered. Any ideas why this may be?



Looks like your connection to NodeBB was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
