I imagine you installed nodebb as root and then are trying to run it as a regular user?
[Solved] Installation error
So I was installing a new nodebb instance on digital ocean but this time i get this error at the end of setup;
info: Beginning database schema update
error: [upgrade] Errors were encountered while updating the NodeBB schema: Error
: ERR Operation against a key holding the wrong kind of value
NodeBB Dependencies up-to-date!
If I launch with --no-check-schema it seems to load and run fine.
I tried to update to latest and got the same error
Well glad to know it's not just me being an idiot again.
Should be fixed on latest https://github.com/designcreateplay/NodeBB/issues/1098#issuecomment-35841868
yup, working fine now.
