I’m experiencing an issue with my
n8n setup where I cannot add any nodes to my workflows. Whenever I attempt to insert a node, I encounter the following error message:
“Could not insert node ‘n8n-nodes-base.manualTrigger’ is an unknown node type”
im on windows server 2022
when i run n8n from CLI there is no problem and i can work in localhost:5678
but i use nssm to run n8n as a service and then using NGINX for Proxy localhost:5678 to my domain address
when i go to my domain address it loads the sign in page for n8n but nothing works from that point. i even login with different user and i can see wokflow page but i cant add any node to the graph it seems n8n cant find any nodes.
n8nis installed correctly and tried reinstalling with
npm install -g n8n@latest.
- Cleared npm Cache: Executed
npm cache clean --forceand reinstalled
- Checked for Multiple
n8nInstances: Made sure no other
n8ninstances were running, especially when attempting to run
NODE_PATHEnvironment Variable: Configured
NODE_PATHto point to my global
- Database Lock Issues: Resolved a previous “SQLITE_BUSY: database is locked” error by ensuring only a single instance is accessing the database.
Despite these efforts, the issue persists, and I’m unable to add any nodes, including base nodes like
manualTrigger, to my workflows. This problem seems to be impacting the ability to recognize or load the
n8n-nodes-base package correctly.
any idea whats the problem.
any hint would be great
