NodeBB Controlled by Monit

Technical Support
  • HI

    I'm trying to get a Self hosted NodeBB forum running with the process controlled by monit to match node process control on the rest of our stack. I can get NodeBB started on start up by calling node on the index.js but I don't seem to be able to ge manual monit stops and starts working.
    Has anyone got NodeBB working with this configuration.

  • I'm having the same issue!

    If anyone has any experience with this, it would be really helpful.

    @pitaj Well, this info is golden.

    This clearly needs to be documented well and easily found. The usage message of ./nodebb setup --help should indicate the expected syntax and strikingly point out config.json is the wrong syntax in this case to be fed into ./nodebb setup.

    In the long run, there should be no special case or different syntax between node app --setup and ./nodebb setup.

    Thank you, @PitaJ, @Max-0 .

    The entire error below. I've been searching for some clues, but coming up empty handed and hoping someone can help. This is a fresh install on a debian 10 server.

    Earlier I installed a search plugin on nodebb, and then I restarted the nodebb service, it shows that the nodebb service has been restarting. I searched for it. I can disable the plugin via ./nodebb reset -p, but my nodebb is installed. In the container, what can I do to knock this order?

    I also run into the problem. Whenever I want to save my customized CSS or Header :

    NodeBB encountered a problem saving changes

    By the suggestion above, I modify it to message: err.message, then it becomes:

    Changes Not Saved: unrecognized input

    What am I supposed to do? Below is my CSS:

    body { font-family: "Times New Roman"; } <script> (function(){ var bp = document.createElement('script'); var curProtocol = window.location.protocol.split(':')[0]; if (curProtocol === 'https') { bp.src = ''; } else { bp.src = ''; } var s = document.getElementsByTagName("script")[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(bp, s); })(); </script>


    <script type="text/x-mathjax-config"> MathJax.Hub.Config({ extensions: ["tex2jax.js"], tex2jax: { inlineMath: [['$','$'], ['\\(','\\)']] }, TeX: {equationNumbers: { autoNumber: "AMS" } } }); </script> <script type="text/javascript" src=""> </script>
