NodeBB Crashing on all Requests

Bug Reports
  • NodeBB crashes for me on all requests with the following error messages. It was working fine last night and I have changed nothing. Anyone experience anything similar?

    TypeError: object is not a function
    at Object.SocketMeta.updateHeader (/NodeBB/src/
    at executeHandler (/NodeBB/src/
    at Socket.<anonymous> (/NodeBB/src/
    at Socket.EventEmitter.emit [as $emit] (events.js:95:17)
    at SocketNamespace.handlePacket (/NodeBB/node_modules/
    at Manager.onClientMessage (/NodeBB/node_modules/
    at WebSocket.Transport.onMessage (/NodeBB/node_modules/
    at Parser.<anonymous> (/NodeBB/node_modules/
    at Parser.EventEmitter.emit (events.js:95:17)
    at finish (/NodeBB/node_modules/

  • Looks like this may be a browser cache issue... I'm curious to see if your cache buster is working. Can you view the source of your NodeBB and paste me some of the <script> tags? They should all have a ?v= at the end of the URL.

    For an immediate workaround, have everybody clear their browser cache. Obviously this is not an ideal solution, so there's an underlying issue here... if client-side scripts are updated, the cache buster should change, and the browser should not be requesting cached copies (as the URL would have changed)...

  • Clearing the cache solved the problem immediately.
