MagicMirror Autostart Error



  • I’m trying to make MagicMirror Autostart at boot, by following the guide on github using pm2.
    I worked once, but now I get this error.

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ pm2 start mm

  • Also, I tried starting it using npm start; the mirror worked fine, but this is the error.

    MagicMirror will not quit, but it might be a good idea to check why this happened. Maybe no internet connection?
    If you think this really is an issue, please open an issue on GitHub: https://github.com/MichMich/MagicMirror/issues

    Inspite of this, the mirror showed me the latest news, but not the calendar. :/



  • Any help on this?

    EADDRINUSE means there is another process running on port 8080

    Please run netstat -lntu on your raspberry in terminal and check what processes are running on port 8080



  • @yawns said in MagicMirror Autostart Error:

    Please run netstat -lntu on your raspberry in terminal and check what processes are running on port 8080

    maybe the MMM-Remote Control ?
    I’ll try the command when I get home.

    Btw, what does this mean? Is there something wrong?

    ERROR! Could not find main module js file.

    I’m just guessing, but I imagine that since the bootup ran into an error (address/port in use) it could not load its files and as such could not continue proper boot.
