Where is my admin panel?

Technical Support
  • I've got NodeBB up and running, I am having some issues. I successfully installed on a ubuntu server with MongoDB. But i've attached an image of what I am seeing, I felt as if there had to be at least some default values...maybe not. But the main issue that I am having is, I have no admin panel. When I click "Login" nothing happens. 0_1456540618569_Capture.PNG

  • @g_campbell well there seems to be no data in the database schema NodeBB is connecting to.

  • @pichalite

    Thank you for the response, was that something I was supposed to do or does it come package in NodeBB?

  • @g_campbell did you run ./nodebb setup when you installed NodeBB?

  • I did. I setup it up via the web interface. How can I confirm that NodeBB and MongoDB are communicating?

  • Anyone have any other input?

  • run setup again and make sure you dont get any messages about not being able to connect to the database

  • @phit is there an uninstall process? or just run ./nodebb setup again?

  • @g_campbell, you can just re-run ./nodebb setup

  • @phit @ThingBreaker

    Thanks for the help guys. I actually uninstalled and reinstalled mongodb as well. There has been some change... Although I still cannot login to the admin panel. But here is what my home page looks like now0_1456678889685_Capture.PNG

  • Here is what i receive during setup that might give some sort of clues to my issues...

  • I installed the wrong software stack. I installed the one in the ubuntu installation and i notice the one in the actual mongo db installation is different, once i installed that one, my login panel appeared. Thanks for the help everyone.
