MMM-sort wont load help needed

  • ![alt text](image url)Hi every one…

    i have got an issue with MMM-SORT - the module wont load,

    is stuck on ( first the tide rushes in… )

    does anyone know why this is happened. i have valid key and also bough a credits so it should work correctly.

  • @gauka12345 what might be shown on the console where u started mm, npm start, or the pm2 console, shown w pm2 logs --lines=???

    ??? is a number, defaults to 15

    also may find info in the developers window ctrl-shift-i on the keyboard, then select the console tab and scroll up to see any errors

    u can also filter by module, by placing a part of the module name in the filter field, sort, for example

  • Hi Sam, please see below :

    i@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ npm start

    magicmirror@2.12.0 start /home/pi/MagicMirror

  • @gauka12345 hm

    something else is using port 8080

    sudo netstat -a | grep 8080

  • thank you Sam ,

    hmm, i have got a XRPD running on this pi , so i could access it from my main PC

    also i have got another pi connected as the retro PI

    with the script nothing is happening

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo netstat -a | grep 8080
    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo netstat -a | grep 8080
    pi@raspberrypi:~ $

  • @gauka12345 well something is using port 8080

    try moving mm to 8090

    edit the port in config.js

  • Sam, you are totally right by changing the port number it fixed the issue 😉
    thanks you are genius!

    Kind regards
