This is becoming very frustrating, have a great looking forum that is next to useless unless I can modify it to suit my needs. I've spent hours looking for clues at these forums, I've searched Google for anything similar, and nothing of help there.
I did get some hints from a_5smith
If anything breaks, there's a few reset commands that you can use if needs be. So if installing a plugin stops nodebb loading, disabling that plugin will usually fix it etc.
Lets not forget I am a noob ....
Does anyone know what the reset commands are? And how do I disable a plugin, or discern which plugins (if any) need disabling.
Also a_5mith mentioned;
Try redis-cli DEL lockout:1 in your "nodebb" folder
As mentioned in my previous post this didn't help, but I was able to locate a noobs guide on common ssh commands (for any other noobs in the future), as I've been unable to locate the nodebb folder, and when I use cd nodebb it reports "no such file or directory"
ls also doesn't work, or it might, it just doesn't list any folders other than root?
