Installation Errors



  • Hey guys,

    I'm in the middle of getting nodebb installed, but I'm receiving an error that I'm unsure how to fix:

        npm http 200 https://registry.npmjs.org/project-honeypot/-/project-honeypot-0.0.0.tgz

    Can anyone shed some light on a solution?



  • I managed to fix this and thought I would post this here for posterity.

    I edited the file npm-shrinkwrap.json

    and replaced the code block on line 1159:

        "simple-recaptcha": {
          "version": "1.0.0",
          "from": "git://github.com/wzrdtales/simple-recaptcha.git#f408725106872df696436ff6a988923539ab80a6",
          "resolved": "git://github.com/wzrdtales/simple-recaptcha.git#f408725106872df696436ff6a988923539ab80a6"
        }
    

    with:

        "simple-recaptcha": {
          "version": "1.0.0",
          "from": "https://github.com/wzrdtales/simple-recaptcha/archive/v1.0.0.tar.gz",
          "resolved": "https://github.com/wzrdtales/simple-recaptcha/archive/v1.0.0.tar.gz"
        }



Looks like your connection to NodeBB was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
