@julian - this looks abandoned, but something like this?
NodeBB upgrades became worse since 0.7
@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.
