Upgrading error

  • I got this error after upgrading into 0.6.x

    when running ./nodebb dev

    this is my config.json

        "url": "http://example.com",
        "port": "4567",
        "secret": "secretsauce here",
        "bind_address": "",
        "database": "redis",
        "redis": {
            "host": "",
            "port": "6379",
            "password": "long password here",
            "database": "0"
        "bcrypt_rounds": 12,
        "upload_path": "/public/uploads",
        "use_port": false,

  • Double-check your password for your redis config, as that's the typical cause of a connection refusal.

  • I disabled the requiredpass in redis.conf then remove the password in config.json but still same problem/error.

    thank anyway. 😄

  • Fixed the error on first post. But i got new error when running ./nodebb dev

     Error: listen EADDRINUSE

    anyone, know what is this? 😄

    EADDRINUSE means something is already bound to the port NodeBB is looking to bind to. Most likely you have NodeBB running already, so you'll need to kill it.
