./public/uploads/ should be persist, it's used for the uploaded files.
By the way, how do you handle the persist problem in docker?
I just started playing around with NodeBB and so far I am impressed with how easy it is to set up.
However, even though I managed to follow the simple installation process and start NodeBB (using ./nodebb start), all I got was a blank home page.
I configured my installation to work with MongoDB. I thought that may be causing some weird issues so I tried with Redis too. The result was the same. I even tried installing it on Ubuntu 14.04, Windows 8.1 and even on a Vagrant box (ubuntu/trust64).
I am kinda confused. The installation seems to have went correctly, after all I can start the app.
Am I missing a theme or something, or am I just stupid and have missed something?
P.S. I followed the official documentation in order to install.
@leksar No errors in chrome's console. On firefox, it seems to occur randomly, but I sometimes get the following error
The connection to ws://127.0.0.1:4567/socket.io/?EIO=3&transport=websocket&sid=Dq0LcrxqbiI3dTIXAAAx was interrupted while the page was loading.
I checked the partials to make sure everything is there. It seems like the view cannot be rendered properly.
I even tried reinstalling the rendering engine module with no success.
I forgot to mention that the /register page gets rendered. It looks like this.
@BDHarrington7 Thanks for your help, I managed to get it up and running yesterday. The problem turned out to be npm. For some reason it never completely downloaded all modules.
I managed to figure that out by running the nodebb app with nodemon. When I ran it I saw an error get thrown, which wasn't in the nodebb log.
Simply put, always check your npm modules! Dependencies go deep and sometimes may get messy.
