I discovered this was due to the theme slick, which seemed to be broken to me, as the form and input elements were missing multiple values, which didn't get loaded when save was clicked, so no information was sent. I made a child theme to fix it.
Can't access admin panel
So i just downloaded NodeBB and fully set it up. However i don't think during the setup it ever asked for a administrative username and password, i have tried multiple attempts to access it in Redis or give another user admin rights but i can't get it to work. Please help!
@OmegaJT22 it should have asked for an admin account username and password. If it didn't that was in error. Did you use the web installer or the CLI installer?
@PitaJ I used the CLI installer, is it possible to completely redo the install?
@OmegaJT22 yes just delete your
./nodebb setupagain, with a different database name
@PitaJ I'm getting a bunch of errors.
@PitaJ Should I also be deleting the administrator database?
@OmegaJT22 yeah, I said to use a different database name. You used
0again. You could delete it and use
0, or try
1or something else.
I suggest using MongoDB if you're running on Windows, though. It's a lot easier to set up and a lot more stable. I say this specifically because it looks like you haven't set up Redis correctly.
@PitaJ OK thanks, I will have to try and do that tomorrow.
