So although thats a plugin it has Widget like element and stopped working on the Theme change
Which is normal based on the widgets being reset when you change themes.
I am on a MacBook and I opened the TERMINAL. Do I just type the script given above? How does the command know to engage with my website, my VPS server, etc? Maybe, there is a step I am missing before typing in these scripts.
@mventures You’d need to connect to the server and execute it directly - not on your local terminal. Review the guide below, which will show you how to gain access via SSH to your server
Once you have access, you’ll need to navigate to the actual folder where NodeBB is installed
You’ll then need to change to the directory as shown below
In most cases, initial access takes you to the root of the file system. You can always issue
pwd in a Linux terminal which will show you the Present Working Directory. From there, you can issue the command
Once in the NodeBB directory, you’d use the below commands
./nodebb stop git fetch && git checkout develop && git reset --hard origin/develop ./nodebb upgrade ./nodebb start
Line 1 stops the NodeBB instance
Line 2 gets the latest files from GIT (repository) and then checks out the development branch. It then resets the version you are using to the development branch ready for v3
Line 3 Runs the upgrade once the new branch is set, and code pulled
Line 4 Restarts the NodeBB instance after the upgrade has completed
Note that when you restart NodeBB and log back in, things will look very different to what you had in v2.
