Did you git fetch and git checkout 0.6.x and git merge origin/v0.6.x first?
This is the official upgrade guide:Upgrading - NodeBB Documentation
I'm unsure if this was a desired effect, but the upgrade stretched the width of my category icons. It no longer looks the same and I'm having difficulty getting it back to the way it was. This might have happened to others. Any ideas as to what happened and how this could be resolved? I'm working with git to see if I can pinpoint what happened.
Hm... when you ran
node app --upgrade, it should have correctly added the category sizes to each category.
In the admin panel, under "categories", can you try putting this in the "custom class" field?
@julian node app --upgrade is throwing an error on
Error: Could not load the bindings file. Tried: etc....
Did you run
npm update recently? Give this a shot:
Sometimes when you run
npm update, our dependencies need to be "rebuilt". I'm investigating a workaround to this, so all you have to run is
./nodebb upgrade, maybe.
That seems to have been the issue. I ran a git pull, then npm install followed by npm update. After performing the step you listed, node app --upgrade worked correctly. However now I receive the following error.
error: Problem minifying client-side libraries, exiting.
Problem Solved. I failed to realize that I was trying to run NodeBB on a privileged port and that I had not granted proper permissions for it to do so. My site is up. Thanks for your help @julian, what you suggested did work as well.
Cheers @dylenbrivera, glad you got it working
