Setup script: MongoDb connection

  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    Hello guys,

    Can't do initial setup: sudo ./nodebb setup

    I have auth connection error:

    I just double checked configuration(config.json includes correct password), seems everything is correct, also I don't have problems with connection from mongo shell or Robomongo (Admin GUI):

    Shell example: mongo -u overuser -p herePwd --authenticationDatabase forum_db

    Mongo is configured with authentication:

    # Turn on/off security.  Off is currently the default
    #noauth = true
    auth = true

    overuser is dbOwner of forum_db
    branch: 0.6.x

    Interesting stuff, but:

    node app.js --setup

    I was able to finish initial setup...

    It could be because you were calling it with sudo

    As @pitaj mentions, invoking sudo with NodeBB is bound to bring you trouble 😄 -- no need for superuser privileges for NodeBB, and I'm thinking of having NodeBB run as the nobody user, if possible...



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