• I managed to install and run 0.8 with "redis": "version": "0.12.1", and connect-redis v2.0.0.
    So use those versions of node and npm and you should be fine.
    Pay attention if you use nvm and different users to run the blog! Check the npm and node version with the user that starts the app.


  • Hello everyone,

    I've been enjoying Nodebb for more than 2 years now and I'm running nodebb v.0.6.0 on Digital Ocean and I finally took some time to upgrade to 1.4.0 this weekend.
    I know it was long overdue, but my dog ate my keyboard, life is hard and ninjas stole my computer for 2 years before giving back to me this weekend...

    Anyway, I've been following this

    and this topic
    https://community.nodebb.org/topic/4700/solved-upgrading-nodebb-0-6-0-to-0-7-0/26

    I managed to upgrade from 0.6.0 to 0.6.1 but when I jump to 0.7.x things get messy...
    I have a const error with bluebird, that I'm able to avoid after upgrading node but afterwards, I'm just stuck with my database not connecting or being found when I run ./nodebb upgrade or ./nodebb setup

    I've tried npm install also but it doesn't get me further.

    I'm running node v 0.10.36, npm 1.4.28 and have installed nvm.

    this is what I get when I run ./nodebb dev

    By any chance, is there someone willing to help me out? Even though I don't deserve it since I waited so long to upgrade my nodebb.

    An error with const suggests there is an issue with Node.js being too far out of date to work with NodeBB.


  • Thanks for the quick reply Julian. (when trying to reply I get a flag for spam by Askimet error... and I can't scroll down in the composer to see my whole message, even in zen mode...)

    I manage to get passed that error when I update node, for example to v4.4.3

    but afterwards I'm facing this issue after a ./nodebb setup

    Is there a mongo update that I should be doing before jumping to nodebb v0.7.x ?

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    gyp error suggests a problem rebuilding binaries for compiled packages for NodeBB, of which we have none now.

    So uninstall them with npm unl lwip mmmagic then try again.

  • By installing node v4.0.0, re-installing connect-mongo and mongodb I did manage to run the ./nodebb upgrade for v0.7.x

    But nodebb won't start, this is what I get with ./nodebb dev and all my plugins have been deactivated and unistalled before I started this.

    Certainly looks like kerberos is failing when trying to build... but we don't require it to be run... can you try nuking your node_modules/ and running npm install --production again?


  • Thanks Julian for the follow-up! Much appreciated.

    I did manage to upgrade to 0.7.3
    By upgrading to 0.6.1, sending nodebb v0.7.3 per FTP, then run a ./nodebb upgrade, then a npm install of colors, minimist and touch that were required.
    Then finally the ./nodebb upgrade went through, but I was never able to get nodebb to start. The Mongo database was not connecting it seems.

    I'm giving it another try tonight and I'll try your idea and keep you posted if I succeed... and if I don't well I be back here begging for any idea.


  • Unfortunately, even after killing node_modules/ with rimraf and running npm install --production, I have the same error with Kerberos.

    My plan F was to update to v0.6.1, then to v0.7.0.
    I can't uprade since I have the famous "Mongo DB not installed, run setup" and when I run set up I have the Kerberos error...
    But then I manage to checkout v0.7.x
    and when I run the ./nodebb upgrade I have this

    1. Bringing base dependencies up to date... OK
    2. Updating NodeBB data store schema.

    [root@writers nodebb]# git describe --tags
    v0.7.3-6-g6856a5e
    

    And ./nodebb dev gives me this

  • In the end, I edited the index.js file in /root/..../node_modules/connect-mongo

    and changed

    module.exports = require('./src');
    
    

    to

    module.exports = require('connect-mongo/es5');
    

    Solution found here. I've now managed to upgrade to v0.8.x and keep going tomorrow.

    Thanks for your help Julian!

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    Ah yes... that would be it 😄

    Another solution would be upgrading your Node.js version, as it is too far behind. You'll need at least Node.js v4 for optimal™ usage.


  • Hehe thanks Julian.

    I actually tried all the way different versions of Node.js thanks to nvm.
    I was at the start v0.10.36, I upgraded to 0.10.38 but that didn't work out.

    I tried with v0.11.x versions, v0.12.x, v4.0.x and even v7.2.1 but I usually got stuck with Kerberos or mmmagic errors when I tried changing node.js's version.

    I'm actually stuck now, jumping from v0.9.x to v1.x.x with an _key_1_value_-1 already exists error

    I've checked out the following topics
    https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/issues/5265
    and
    https://community.nodebb.org/topic/9939/index-with-name-key_1_value-1-already-exists-with-different-options

    But er.. in layman's terms what would that be? Because droping the database doesn't work for me.
    I type mongo, then use name of the database and then try db.objects.getIndexes()
    but I get this error

    2016-12-16T05:09:50.021-0500 error: { "$err" : "not authorized for query on wotw.system.indexes", "code" : 13                                                 } at src/mongo/shell/query.js:131
    

    I must be doing something wrong...

    exomarty created this issue in NodeBB/NodeBB

  • Finally made it from v0.6.0 to v1.4.1

    This was my upgrade route (hosted on DigitalOcean and with a mongo database - shell 2.6.7, node v0.10.38)

    *v0.6 to v0.6.1
    git fetch
    git reset --hard origin/v0.6.x
    git describe --tags
    ./nodebb upgrade
    
    *v0.6.1 to v0.7.0
    git checkout v0.7.0
    ./nodebb upgrade
    
    npm install touch
    npm install minimist
    npm install colors
    
    *v0.7.0 to v0.7.3
    git reset --hard origin/v0.7.x 
    git describe --tags
    ./nodebb upgrade
    
    node app --upgrade
    
    *install nvm
    curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.11.1/install.sh | bash
    *Restart terminal
    nvm install v0.10.39
    
    * Change index.js in /root/"yourfoldername"/node_modules/connect-mongo from
    *module.exports = require('./src');
    *to
    *module.exports = require('connect-mongo/es5');
    
    *edit /etc/mongod.conf, to uncomment auth = true line 
    
    service mongod restart
    
    mongo
    use admin
    db.createUser({user: "adminname", pwd: "yourpassword", roles: ["readWrite"]})
    
    use *name of the db where nodebb is installed*
    db.updateUser( "adminname",
                   {
                     roles : [
                               { role : "dbAdmin", db : "*name of the db where nodebb is installed*"  },
                               { role : "readWrite", db : "*name of the db where nodebb is installed*"  }
                             ]
                    }
                 )
    
    ./nodebb upgrade
    ./nodebb start
    ./nodebb stop
    
    *v0.7.3 to v0.8.x
    git checkout v0.8.x
    git pull
    ./nodebb upgrade
    
    ./nodebb start
    ./nodebb stop
    
    *v0.8.2 to v0.9.x
    git checkout v0.9.x
    git pull
    ./nodebb upgrade
    
    ./nodebb start
    ./nodebb stop
    
    *v0.9.4 to v1.4.1
    git checkout v1.x.x
    git pull
    
    nvm install v6.2.1
    nvm use v6.2.1
    
    ./nodebb upgrade
    
    *edit /etc/mongod.conf, to uncomment noauth=true line 
    

    This should help to avoid any issue with mmmagic, kerberos, bluebird and the key_1_value_-1 already exist error.

    Et voilà !

    Thanks again for your help Julian !
