Technical Support
  • #1

    Using nodejs v0.10.37, redis 3.0.0, and nodebb 0.6.1 through a nginx proxy. I've run npm up, cleared nginx cache and restarted it.

    Hey @overlawled nice to see you switching to NodeBB šŸ˜„

    I can't reproduce that right now, running v0.6.x and those theme versions... do you see any errors in the browser console when navigating to the login page?

    I do!

    Really... and that's on a fresh install? Weird.

    Can you post a link to your forum so we can take a look, and run it in dev mode for now? (./nodebb dev)

    If you don't want to post it, PM it to @baris, @psychobunny, or myself šŸ™‚

    You have problem with minification of the scripts.
    I can encounter this problem several times on day. Until I have found way how to fix it, it was a pain šŸ˜‰

    Temporal solution

    1. Stop Nodebb
    2. Enter nodebb/public directory
    3. Delete src directory, - rm -rf src
    4. Checkout src directory - git checkout .
    5. Start Nodebb

    @julian I have found source of the issue.
    Minification script does not ignore hidden files, like .DS_Store.


    Visit public/src folder, open several files, use finder on Mac. Check if you have .DS_Store files in subdirectories of public/src. Now when you restart NodeBB, minified script will be broken with different artefacts.


    Minification script should include only *.js files.

    Temporal Solution 2 for Mac Users

    1. Enter public/src directory.
    2. Delete all .DS_STORE recursively - find . -name '*.DS_Store' -type f -delete

    What I did was, I installed the lobby app. Some feature are working but most them are not. Like when I tried to change the app setting in admin configuration, I got this Error.
