Problems Upgrading UCP Node

Hi Jim,

I had the same problem this morning and was hoping somebody would respond to your thread.

This version of UCPNODE requires an upgrade to NPM. From the Linux command line:

npm install npm -g

I discovered this by attempting to force install the module from the CLI and got a version error telling me to run the above command. Did so, everything worked.

EDIT: Tagging @tm1000 to make sure he knows what’s up =)

I wrote the module and I wrote that message. No need to tag me. My point is all you have to do is run that message. The messages about missing deps can be safely ignored.

Oh >.> Thanks Andrew :blush: thought that it was a system message because it didn’t get pretty colors.

Tried to enable UCP NODE and the error comes back that npm is not installed. Yesterday I installed npm manually over the exisitng to ensure it is working. npm is working fine, it is not able to find the “upcnode” in the database. Is there a different name to this module. Thanks

Configs::Asterisk (Ver. 11.16.0) Installed with AsteriskNOW / FreePBX ios. I have just started on this system, I am completely new to this Asterisk – I have never fully installed this, and now I am trying to build a server at home as the media is getting uncontrollable …any help would be great…Thanks in anticipation…and this is my first post on asterisk, if at wrong forum, my apologies in advance.

There is a ton of confusion in here. Please read the inital post (scroll all the way up).

Some things to consider:

  1. UCP Node is a FreePBX module that uses node. It is not a part of NPM. You can’t install it through npm
  2. You should no longer be trying to update NPM separately
  3. You should be first removing nodejs AND npm, Then installing just nodejs
  4. Once that is done and works (npm --version) then you install ucp node:

.

amportal a ma remove ucpnode
amportal a ma download ucpnode
amportal a ma install ucpnode

I wish this could be easier but unfortunately it’s not. The next upgrade scripts will fix this for you as well.

After using the steps above to fix my FPBX13 appliance a few weeks ago, things somehow broke again. UCP Node is being disabled pending upgrade to the 13.0.12. That upgrade fails.

I redid the steps above thinking something may have reverted, and got a new error.

Works fine here. Perhaps try to uninstall it. Also remove the pid it’s talking about.

I’m also getting an error with the latest. I hadn’t updated the module in a few releases, coming from .9. I tried the above list of commands from Andrew and that didn’t work. I removed the module manually from the modules folder. At first, the web interface complained that it was broken (as expected), so then I used the web interface to uninstall, which wasn’t presented before, it had been listed as disabled and my only option was to enable and upgrade. Once uninstalled, it showed in the list as available and allowed for installation. I tried that, but it still generated an error. My error is Error: EACCES, mkdir ‘/home/asterisk/.npm/node-expat/2.3.11’. The suggestion is to run as root, but I’m already doing that.

As a follow up, I ran curl -L https://www.npmjs.com/install.sh | sh and then I was able to run

amportal a ma download ucpnode
amportal a ma install ucpnode

and it installed correctly. Slap me if this broke something else.

I saw you fixed your issue, I was having the same issue today where the log was showing a permissions error creating the directory.

I was moving from 13.0.11 to 13.0.12

Command line installation worked for me when logged in as root.

fwconsole ma uninstall ucpnode
fwconsole ma remove ucpnode
fwconsole ma download ucpnode
fwconsole ma install ucpnode

I had tried that but they didn’t help. I reinstalled npm because doing npm install npm -g actually generated an error during the update and corrupted npm to not run at all. I had tried Andrew’s full routine on Sep 4 above and it didn’t work for me.

Hi,

I have the last updates, But I can’t install UCP node.
This RPM is installed:
nodejs-0.10.40-1.shmz65.1.6.i686

when I run “amportal a ma install ucpnode” I receive this errors:
module.js:340
throw err;
^

Do you have any solution for this?

For those having an issue with nodejs and ucpnode in latest freepbx release 13.0.190.19-1.shmz65.1.53

Run the following in SSH/CLI interface

yum remove nodejs
yum remove npm
yum install nodejs

Once completed, reboot the server and go into the GUI to Admin-Module Admin and check for updates. Run the update process again until all modules are up to date. If you have dependencies that fail, you may have to 'yum remove bad dependency) ’ and then install again.

As always, make sure you have latest stable release of the distro if at all possible.

dont use amportal, use fwconsule moduleadmin uninstall package (module name without stars) or simply

fwconsole ma remove ucpnode

then

fwconsole ma install ucpnode

I tried the yum install ucpnode and received the following:

yum install ucpnode
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, kmod
Setting up Install Process
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
No package ucpnode available.
Error: Nothing to do

Any idea why it would say no package ucpnode available?

fwconsole ma not yum

It looks good until it errors out [exception] There is no process by that name
