sudo nodebb help



  • I always mess up the upgrades, when npm update errors, i always give up and do sudo npm update, and then i probably do sudo nodebb upgrade...

    and now im in the same mess as before where ./nodebb dev fails but sudo ./nodebb dev works fine.

    does anyone know how i can get back to using nodebb without sudo? :(



  • @chas could you be more specific and tell us what it does when it fails?



  • i dont know what the cause is, but its when i start using sudo commands to fix errors with npm or the upgrade. It just works after i run Sudo. i had the same problem on my old machine aswell. I must be doing something wrong! because it used to work.

    heres what i get now with a normal ./nodebb dev, if i run with sudo it works fine.
