./nodebb start telling me nodebb is already running, it's not!

  • Ok so this is a new issue that has only happened since I did the last git pull, when I try to restart nodebb after rebooting my vps I get told that nodebb is already running, so I checked that I haven't set it to start on boot, but no it is definitely not running, I do have a ghost instance running on the server but no nodebb install is running.

    @sp4rkr4t Thanks for the bug report, I'll look into it now.

    In the meantime, if this shows up -- rm pidfile and you should be good to go

    If NodeBB says another instance is running (when there isn't one), then it means it got shut down incorrectly. Hm...

  • Ah right, that fixed it. So if node or the server goes down bad as the code stands it won't restart without removing the pidfile?

    Yeah, the pidfile stays, though I'll fix up the code so it checks if the pidfile points to a running process, and if not, then disregard it.
