• Hi,

    I have actually given up on the forum for the time being due to lack of interest. I am thinking of just doing a test forum just for me only and to practice etc but that will be sometime in the next months.

    In the meantime I have a question that I feel here is the best place to ask 🙂 Love the forum the look and the great advice.

    I am basically running just 1 app on my home server for gaming that uses node.js and npm. Both my versions of those are older versions but I know sometimes in the past after an update it ‘broke’ the app making me now reluctant to update again. Why change a winning side right? It works.

    What is the correct way to update them both. Clear cache needed etc? I will do a back up before (if) I update the versions.

    Hope all are ok and safe. Thanks for any replies.

    🙂


  • @Sampo2910 before we start, do you know if the app itself you are running is compatible with the latest release of NodeJS ? I don’t expect npm to be an issue as it’s the Node Package Manager.


  • @phenomlab Hi thx for the reply.

    I am using this https://github.com/byNeHo/CoD4x-WebAdmin

    NeHo does not update it so much to be honest. I spoke to him and he does it from ‘time to time’

    I installed nvm so I can see the latest version of node etc and I guess i can just roll back if it does not work?

    Is there a way I can see what the app version of Node is? Then i could install ‘up to that’ and keep an eye out for any changes?

    As i said I am also all for not breaking a winning side haha and leave it as it is.


  • @Sampo2910 I think the best approach is to perhaps install this in a virtual machine where you can setup everything new, then attempt to install the app itself to ensure it works as desired before you attempt the actual upgrade on your server.

    The virtual machine itself can be installed on your own PC and will act just like an independent machine but of course is part of your own machine.

    Are you familiar with virtual machine concerts? Happy to help with this if needed.

    Have a look in the source code for the app you are using, or better still, look at the GitHub page which should give you an idea of the version number which is the latest.

    In the source code you have running, there is typically a README file which should state the version you are running.
