    Thank you of course, but the obvious solution does not solve the problem, that is why I have asked this question on the forum.
    I have mongodb database backup from version 0.5.0
    How to move mongodb database from 0.5.0 to 0.6.1 ?
    The way of upgarding that is described in the wiki is not suitable.
    The reason is that the version 0.5.0 has installed on server #1, there was written several own plugins, personal theme
    and many other non-standard settings. Now we are moving to new server and I want to use there latest version of NodeBB.
    I have tried to move configured version 0.5.0 on new server,
    an error occurs "Error creating index server sockets closed".
    Running the upgrade script does not result in any obvious changes.
    The main question is how to transfer database of users, messages, etc...
    Later I can install my own plugins amd customize default theme.
    I see two ways to solve my problem:

    1. Set to work old nodeBB version 0.5.0 on new server and then do upgrade.
    2. Transfer messages, users, passwords from a database configured for version 0.5.0 on a fresh instal of 0.6.1

    I would be grateful for any help.

    After successful updating I run "npm up", cleaned cookies and cache, made "node app --reset themes" and "./nodebb reset all". Everything has started without errors but theme does not show categories and if I am trying to login then I've got error message "invalid csrf token". If I will set back fresh database to the forum - it works.

    Any ideas?

    Invalid csrf error possibly means your theme is out of date. Try updating it to latest version compatible with 0.6.1.

    As for empty categories page it might be related to the theme being out of date or the categories just don't have the correct permissions setup in the ACP.

    @baris My current theme is up to date. As I have already wrote , I did "npm up" and "node app --reset themes".
    I think that the problem is in updating of database.
    Permissions are ok because in version 0.5.1 everything works.
    Only after update using wiki tutorial I have faced with this problem.

    @baris I have repeated and checked all steps and permissions again and it works now. Probably I made a mistake somewhere. Thank you,
