Solved Error While Upgrading v0.9.4 to v1.0.0: ERR value is not a valid float

  • Swedes

    Is it safe to upgrade to 1.0.0 from 0.9.4 now ?

  • @Jenkler In my case, no not yet. There appears to be an issue with the chats in my forum. I am going to delete them from the database (sorry users) and attempt the upgrade again.

    When I finally do this upgrade to production I will send a mass email to my users letting them know that their chat threads will be deleted and give them a little time to make a copy of them if they care about retaining the content.

    Ok, good to know

    "I am going to delete them from the database" <-- Can you do that from NodeBB ACP ?

  • @Jenkler Unfortunately I cannot.

    I am using redis and the only plugin I found that manages database entries is for Mongodb. I am going to attempt to load the RedditRedis Desktop Manager. @ThingBreaker

  • @pichalite I've made access to my redis database. I see the "messages" that I should delete. Question about that. Should I delete the entire "message:1", "message:2", etc., entries?

    Also, it looks like my first attempt to upgrade created four chat rooms. Should I delete them as well or leave them?

    Thank you.

    @rod not sure. you can probably delete them if you don't need those back

  • After deleting the "message:x" database keys the upgrade completed without error.

    Upon startup though I am getting an error that is keeping NodeBB from starting:

    $ ./nodebb log
    Type Ctrl-C to exit

    I ran the upgrade again but still end up with this error upon starting. I do not recall installing the nodebb-plugin-soundpack-default plugin. I believe it is native to NodeBB.

    Help please on what to look at next.

    Thank you.

    @rod that's an issue reported here

    pull latest v1.x.x and try upgrade again

    ghost created this issue in NodeBB/NodeBB

    closed v1.x.x outdated shrinkwrap #4310

  • @pichalite I did a git pull and now have a hash of 55b43dca23702dca935aabb953594c8a343ee259

    Ran the upgrade successfully.

    Started NodeBB but had an imgbed plugin errror. I ran the ./nodebb reset -p nodebb-plugin-imgbed command and then attempted the startup. NodeBB started up this time!

    I have upgraded all of my plugins that had available upgrades including the imgbed one. Now on startup it doesn't throw an error. Overall everything is working and I will mark this thread as solved. I won't be upgrading my production to v1.0.0 yet as the Amazon S3 plugin caused NodeBB to crash. I will wait to see if that plugin ever gets updated. @wladiston

    Thank you for your help.

  • Followup. I found a different Amazon S3 uploader plugin that seems to be working under v1.0.0. If interested see here
