The folder is probably named /home/nodebb/nodebb not /path/to/nodebb so try. cd /home/nodebb/nodebb to go to the installation directory. If that gives the same error you can list the contents of the /home/nodebb directory by the ls command and find out the real name of the nodebb installation directory.
v0.9.3: Error encountered while uploading a user profile picture
rod last edited by rod
I attempted to upload a user profile picture and received the following error after the file upload bar went to 100%:
error uploading, code : 502
Looking through my Nginx log files I see this error logged:
2016/02/03 08:26:25 [error] 962#0: *12317 connect() failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream, client: [MY IP ADDRESS], server: myForumHere.com, request: "GET /socket.io/?EIO=3&transport=polling&t=1454513183873-9 HTTP/1.1", upstream: "http://127.0.0.1:4568/socket.io/?EIO=3&transport=polling&t=1454513183873-9", host: "myForumhere.com", referrer: "https://myForumHere.com/user/myUserName"
(I redacted my client IP address, my forum name, my forum URL, and my actual username.)
I am using the AmazonS3 plugin but I am able to upload the same image into a new topic. Any ideas on what I should check for the root of the problem?
EDIT: Adding additional error found in log:
I found this error in my error logs above the one I previously posted:
2016/02/03 08:26:10 [error] 962#0: *12317 upstream prematurely closed connection while reading response header from upstream, client: [MY IP ADDRESS], server: myForumHere.com, request: "POST /api/user/myUserName/uploadcover HTTP/1.1", upstream: "http://127.0.0.1:4568/api/user/myUserName/uploadcover", host: "myForumHere.com", referrer: "https://myForumHere.com/user/myUserName"
As before I edited [MY IP ADDRESS], myForumHere.com and myUserName.
Where on the filesystem do user's profile pictures reside? I want to confirm that the user that Nginx runs under has write access.
@rod It wouldn't be Nginx, it would be NodeBB that needs write access.
@PitaJ Ok. And yes, the linux user that NodeBB runs under owns all of the directories.
After further testing this problem appears to be related to the
nodebb-plugin-amazons3plugin. After I disabled it I was able to upload a user profile picture.
