How To Unbind NodeBB?
I uninstalled NodeBB to start over fresh. I dropped the mongo DB and did an rm -R on the nodebb directory.
Then I git cloned the latest version with git clone -b v1.x.x https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB.git nodebb
Then I built a new mongoDB and tried to start nodebb. I got an error indicating it was already running on 4567. So I ran the command line setup and built it on 7654.
So now I have a working version running on 7654 and a broken version answering on 4567 with no DB attached to it.
how do I fix this?
You'll want to find the pid (process id) of the running NodeBB process. Use
ps aux | grep nodeto see all process that are node based.
killit by pid.
julian@laptop ~/nothingtoseehere (master) $ ps aux | grep node julian 11381 5.5 1.3 959772 53680 ? Ssl 18:25 0:00 /home/julian/.nvm/versions/node/v4.4.0/bin/node /home/julian/nothingtoseehere/loader.js julian 11396 3.7 0.9 910404 37308 pts/5 Sl+ 18:25 0:00 node ./nodebb log julian 11405 44.0 3.8 1303708 153892 ? Rl 18:25 0:05 /home/julian/.nvm/versions/node/v4.4.0/bin/node app.js julian 11483 0.0 0.0 15192 2260 pts/6 S+ 18:25 0:00 grep --color=auto node
Looks like the NodeBB app is on pid 11405, and the loader is 11381.
kill 11381will kill both (as the app is a child of the loader)
