Can't start using ./node start but working with node app.js



  • Hello Everyone,

    I have a weird issue, i can't start my nodebb with the command ./nodebb start but its working just fine with node app.js

    It seems that when i use the ./nodebb start command there is an issue with my config.json, like it can't access the file.

    Because in my output.log i have this :

    url.js:107
    throw new TypeError("Parameter 'url' must be a string, not " + typeof url)

    Its also working with ./nodebb dev

    But i noticed something weird : info: NodeBB is now listening on: 0.0.0.0:4567

    However my conf seems ok. (i tried running ./nodebb setup)

    What am i missing? 😢



  • Paste the contents of your config.json file, remove any private info like secret keys etc.



  • Here it is :

    config.json :

    {
    "url": "http://mydomain:4567",
    "secret": "mykey",
    "database": "redis",
    "redis": {
    "host": "127.0.0.1",
    "port": "5555",
    "password": "",
    "database": "0"
    }
    }



  • Remove :4567 from the URL.



  • Done,

    Nothing has changed 😞

    i don't understand, i tried editing the config.json to remove the port.

    No change, i rerun the setup > it confirm that the port is correctly removed because the defaut option is http://mydomain.fr for the url

    but when i start nodebb with ./nodebb dev i still see :

    0.0.0.0:4567 (is this normal?)



  • Yep 0.0.0.0 is a normal thing.



  • Ok..

    I dont get it then..

    Here my output.log 👍

  • hello again,

    Made a clean install, everything is up and running.

    But if anyone has a clue why i had this problem, please post here 🙂

    Thanks @a_5mith and @Kowlin for helping.


  • GNU/Linux Admin

    Is there a stack trace with that error?



  • Nope i deleted the corrupted install, the only thing i have is the content of my output.log which i posted earlier.

    There was this error :

    TypeError: Parameter 'url' must be a string, not undefined

    this error was repeating itself 3 or 4 times then the server crashed.
