The Module Named "pm2" is required

I just ran across this thread using the forum’s search and did not realise that it was that aged :upside_down_face:

If you look closer, nodejs has been installed with the latest version.

I followed the recommendation and have fired the command

sudo apt -y install npm

that yields to the following output

[email protected]:~ $ sudo fwconsole ma install pm2

From above output, not sure if I have to pay attention to any of the verbose messages printed…

Looks good

node -v

FreePBX is a bit picky about what version of node is used but as npm is the NodePackageManager

Installation completed, everything looks good now :grinning:

I realize this is an old thread but it might work for my issue. We can not update PM2 and get the “unable to install module PM2” error. In another thread it was eluded to that the version of Nodejs was the culpret. Doing a node -v gave me 0.12.18 Version 12 was not compatable per that thread. I am unable to remove PM2 at all. The link to changing Node.js version is quite old is it still viable?

Dont know if it’s necessarily the most graceful way to do it but you can use --force to reinstall broken modules sometimes. I’ve run this one half a dozen times with good results.

fwconsole ma downloadinstall restapps --force

We’re working on a real fix, but see this thread for a workaround:

Thanks Matt As soon as I can get back into that system (hve to use a rdp session) I’ll give it a try.

That directory isn’t found

Can you post your error output when you try to run fwconsole pm2 --list ?

[Symfony\Component\Console\Exception\CommandNotFoundException]
Command “pm2” is not defined.

Any progress on this??

Can you fwconsole ma install pm2?

server: PM2 is required
Matt: Have you tried installing PM2?
:smiley: classic.

I think that if a fix was released, then

fwconsole ma downloadinstall pm2

…would actually grab the fix. No?

I do not have access at the moment. As soon as I do I will try reinstalling it. In the recent past it would fail FYI

There was a fix to the upstream node package that broke things. I believe that it should work again.

Can you wget that link from the server? I’m able to see it just fine from where I am.

Yes,
wget http://mirror1.freepbx.org/npm/pm2-2.10.7.tgz

Worked
I contacted the IT company for this site and there is some DNS filtering, He was going to allow the freepbx.org domain. Haven’t heard whether he has done it or not

Update:
The install still timed out.

No matter what I do it hangs at
[npm-cache] [INFO] [npm] running [npm install]…

Not sure, but if that’s failing, something’s not right. You’re going to need open internet access to lots of places (not just freepbx.org) to be able to install all the dependencies of pm2 via npm. Maybe that’s where it’s failing.
