Yeah I know, will update later.
NodeBB upgrades became worse since 0.7
@pichalite Did you update your theme to specify the proper base theme? https://community.nodebb.org/topic/6098/on-changing-the-default-theme-to-persona
@julian I ran
./nodebb -reset -tto eliminate the theme issue and it was reset to vanilla. still got the error.
The error suggests the themes could not compile for whatever reason. Were there any errors on startup?
@julian no errors during startup
Plugins reset as well? If this were a core issue, we'd be seeing problems on our builds as well.
Move out your
node_modules/folder and run
@julian deleted the complete NodeBB folder and set it up. got it working.
Don't have too many plugins installed. In addition to the default ones I have sso plugins for Facebook, google and twitter and the rss plugin that's it.
@pichalite Glad it's working again Seems it was npm's failing to install dependencies correctly?
We have found the upgrade process to fail nearly every time we have ran it.
I usually find a clean install with a DB backup to be the best process when changing versions.
i tried upgrading using nodebb upgrade, it still shows 0.7.1, its not a git repo, so i cant do a fetch and checkout
./nodebb upgradedoes not download new code for you. You need to do that yourself
Please check out the "Upgrading NodeBB" page in the documentation
Even I was having trouble installing the update using the method listed in the docs.
I did a little searching and found @julian had mentioned a step of installing dependencies after the fetch, etc and prior to running
./nodebb upgradesomewhere in this forum as a reply to a previous update issue.
He had asekd to run
npm ito install dependencies and that is what is working for me. I used it to update from v0.7.0.0 to v0.7.1.0 and also to v0.7.2.0.
@kps Default composer on desktop, or mobile?
Also I keep getting this warning "warn: [plugins/nodebb-theme-persona] In the event of an unresponsive NodeBB caused by this plugin, run ./nodebb reset -p nodebb-theme-persona"
Why should that happen ? I havent installed any other theme

@kps From what I know its basically a warning that the theme/plugin doesn't have the proper version for the current NodeBB version.
Every time I do an upgrade it does not go well. There is always some kind of error even though I am following the upgrade process from the docs.
Same here. Haven't had one work yet, actually. Not since 0.3 I think.
