Repetitive forum update notice

General Discussion
  • Hi,

    I've just installed NodeBB successfully.

    When I'm at the forum page (Admin panel, for now), a notice repeatedly appears in the bottom-right corner, even though I dismiss it:

    "Forum updated

    This forum has just been updated to the latest version. Click here to refresh the page."

    (See it here:

    How do I prevent this from happening ?



  • @howardm your installation is probably trying to restart after an error. check your logs

    ./nodebb log

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your interest.

    When I dismiss the notice, it comes up again about 12 seconds later.

    I don't see anything in my output.log

    The last message is:

    I configured Forever to keep it running, as follows:

    sudo forever start app.js
    warn: --minUptime not set. Defaulting to: 1000ms
    warn: --spinSleepTime not set. Your script will exit if it does not stay up for at least 1000ms
    info: Forever processing file: app.js


    I presume this is not related to that in any way.


  • Update:

    Well, I stopped nodebb:


    forums$ ./nodebb stop
    Stopping NodeBB. Goodbye!

    Now, it's going again (I guess Forever is keeping it going).

    The notice has stopped appearing.

    ? but 🙂


  • @howardm don't think you need forever. NodeBB has the capability to try to start itself if it goes down because of an error unless you stop it using ./nodebb stop
