MagicMirror² v2.6.0 is available! For more information about this release, check out this topic.

Local host only shows NGINX server page.

  • Hi guys,

    does anyone have an idea where to look if when after completely following all steps pulling up http://localhost in chromium would bring up only the NGINX site not anything magic mirror related. Should i look to see if there is maybe an issue with the code I loaded to connect chromium to the server? I cant get it to show anything besides the NGINX site.


  • Also want to clarify im running raspberry pi 3 model B with jesse OS. I actually went off of Dylan J. Peirces guide from reddit. Im wondering if it just isn’t going to work based on the difference in models. Any input would be appreciated.

    You need to append the port to the address. By default, MM2 runs on port 8080, so you want to load up 'http://localhost:8080'

    Why exactly are you using chromium anyway? There is no need for that (if you do not use a Pi 1)

  • Im just going by dyan J peirces guide. Unfortunatley still having issues. When I go to http://localhost:8080 via the browser I get an error that it cant be reached. I’m guessing I just need to wipe it out and find an updated version of code for the RPI3.

    Rather than looking for other people’s write-ups, why not follow the tried and true method that’s on the actual project page?

    There is an 'Automatic Installer' section, as well as a 'Manual Installation' if things fail.

  • Perfect. Thanks guys. I’m new to this and programming so I wasn’t even aware there was a full read me and tutorial on that site. I’ll check it out. Thanks.

  • @KirAsh4 this worked GREAT. Thank you I have it up and running. Just one more question. Do you know how to change the orientation of the display. it comes up on the mirror horizontally(Clock in the top left corner, forecast in the right) , I would like vertically so I could flip the TV on its side behind the mirror. Thanks for any input.
