            Proper way of using npm in root environment
            Asked 2022-Mar-17 at 15:11

            I'm currently setting up a Parse Server with AWS EC2 instance, where I've been using Nginx and Elastic IP to manage SSL certificates. Through different guides I've reached the solution of put the node app at /var/www/parse-server, but they say I should do 'npm init' in this directory, which is obviously owned by root (and fails because of permissions, of course).

            My question is about the proper way of manipulate the app files in this root path, specially because 'sudo npm init' has conflicts with packages when the project keep moving on.

            • Should I use 'sudo su' and proceed with the install? I tried to do that, but npm init isn't recognized as a command. I haven't tried with --prefix yet, because I wanted to make sure before do that.
            • Should I use another directory to keep my application working? I've though that, but what about nginx and all the related config?
            • Should I chown -R the folder to gain ownership of the /var/www/parse-server folder? If I do that, what about permissions later on?

            If you don't know the details about it, but have a guide or reference to look up, I'll be grateful.

            Thanks to all!

            I found two workarounds for this:

            1. chown -R to change the directory owner to my own user. This works but i think is not the proper way.
            2. Proxy reverse to the specific folder (i'm using nginx, so whoever is watching this thread should be fine with nginx docs)

            Thanks to Davi Macedo for solution 1.

            The parse-dashboard knows the parse backend through its docker-compose hostname parse.

            So after login, the parse-dashboard (UI), will generate requests to that host http://parse:1337/parse/serverInfo based on the default parse backend hostname. More details about this here.

            The problem is that your browser (host computer) doesn't know how to resolve the ip for the hostname parse. Hence the name resolution errors.

            As a workaround, you can add an entry to your hosts file to have the parse hostname resolved to

            i have seen many tutorials how to setup LiveQuery (most of them were prepared for back4app servers) However i found some tutorials made for self hosted servers and there was something like "index.js" which I believe is in this app "app.js".

            You are not awaiting the request to end and the function is returning before it happens. Try something like this (considering you are using >3 parse version):



            Parse Server - Cannot enable verbose and cloud logLevel modes
            Asked 2020-Dec-23 at 10:17

            I am using heroku running Parse server 4.4.0. I am unable to enable verbose mode.

            logLevel also does not work.

            I check many posts that say set VERBOSE=1 but this does not work. what are the option options?

            here is my index.js



            Answered 2020-Dec-23 at 10:17

            If someone else comes looking for this issue then solution is to delete environment variable LOG_LEVEL.

            I don't know why this happens but using logLevel variable does not work it seems May be Parse developers can look at it.

            Happy if somebody points out any other solution if there is one.

            I cannot access to response object in a cloud code function in parse-server?
            Asked 2020-Nov-01 at 18:13

            I’ve searched a lot around and coudn’t find a way to access the response object of a cloud function in parse-server cloud code (I’m using parse-server version 3.10.0). I’m missing something?

            This is a basic need for every express developer. How can I add response headers, change the response statusCode, sending different Content-Type, pipe stream data to response etc. etc?

            Please help. Thanks



            Answered 2020-Nov-01 at 18:13

            That’s not the purpose of cloud code functions. If you want to handle the express.js request/response by yourself for more customized usage, you can just mount custom routes or middleware to the app. Something like:
