Upgrading from 0.0.2

If you are upgrading from an earlier version, it is a good idea for you to empty your database tables and then install as directed below.

Note regarding install

  • Run npm install and then navigate to to create your admin account and setup the forum

  • You must use the custom version of forms-mongoose included in the node_modules folder as I have made a vast number of changes to it.

Note regarding bcrypt

  • You may need to install OpenSSL and Python (if you don't have them already), more information is available at the bcrypt repository (Thanks to @WhiteaglePT)
