Markdown hast vanished.



  • I was in my ACP and say that 0.5.2 was "released", so I did the business of updating.

    I was greeted by the following error:

    npm ERR! error rolling back Error: EACCES, unlink '/home/a_5mith/35hz/node_modules/npm/node_modules/.bin/mkdirp'

    I've managed to reset to 0.5.2 however Markdown hast gone.

    @a_5mith perchance are some of your files owned by root? XD

    Reset it like so:

    cd /path/to/nodebb 
    chmod -R a5mith:a5mith . 
    


  • @julian
    chmod: invalid mode: Γ’a_5mith:a_5mithΓ’

    Doesn't seem to like the spaces, or something. πŸ˜† If they're removed, I get a missing operand.



  • try chown instead of chmod
    and you need to run it as root


  • GNU/Linux Admin

    Yes thanks @EisFrei I always get those two mixed up πŸ˜„

    Thanks @EisFrei that did it.

    EDIT: Turns out it didn't, I now get permission denied on everything. I have to prefix everything with sudo.

    @julian new error:

    @a_5mith did you actually set the user to the proper username? πŸ˜›

    It's the same username as the user you're logged in as, that you run nodebb under



  • @julian Yes. I did. πŸ˜† Username on my Ubuntu is a_5mith.

    I certainly didn't try just copy and pasting your commands the first time before I realised the error of my ways. πŸ‘€



  • Bumping for a resolution to this. Two issues, I have no markdown on my forum, and I can't run commands without sudo, presumably because the above command broke my permissions. πŸ˜„



  • Let's try to break this down πŸ˜‰

    Take a look at the directory running ls -l /nodebb/directory. It should look like this:

    -rw-r-----  1 a_5mith a_5mith [...]
    drwxr-x--- 10 a_5mith a_5mith [...]
    

    If you see a lot more dashes in the first few rows, running chmod probably messed up the file permissions.

    ----------  1 a_5mith a_5mith [...]
    d--------- 10 a_5mith a_5mith [...]
    

    Running chmod 770 -R /nodebb/directory should reenable your user's access to the files. The command is a bit broad and will make all files executable but it should do the trick.

    -rwxrwx---  1 a_5mith a_5mith [...]
    drwxrwx--- 10 a_5mith a_5mith [...]


  • @EisFrei I'm seeing the following, strangely, I didn't need to add sudo this time, not sure why, same account as I was having issues with before. πŸ˜• Seems that's solved itself then.

    Just the markdown issue now, @julian, care to shed some light on the markdown front?

    NodeBB Essential Widgets
    Installed 0.1.2 | Latest 0.1.2

    Is this version too new for 0.5.2 (non master)

    I also can't install plugins, error is similar to last time.

    I wonder if you're skittish about running commands I give you over the internet yet πŸ˜„

    cd /home/a_5mith
    sudo chown -R a_5mith:a_5mith ./.npm
    

    Then try re-installing markdown 0.0.7 again

    Not until after I've run them and they don't work. πŸ˜† That seems to have done the trick. I have paragraphs back, no more walls of text. 🍰 for you and 🍰 for @EisFrei


  • GNU/Linux Admin

    @a_5mith what! No πŸ” 🍧? 😭



  • @julian said:

    Where do you think we are? Canada? πŸ˜†

    🍡 and 🍰 because :crumpets: doesn't exist.
