    var config = {
    	port: 8080,
    	ipWhitelist: [], // Set [] to allow all IP addresses
    	                                                       // or add a specific IPv4 of 192.168.1.5 :
    	                                                       // ["127.0.0.1", "::ffff:127.0.0.1", "::1", "::ffff:192.168.1.5"],
    	                                                       // or IPv4 range of 192.168.3.0 --> 192.168.3.15 use CIDR format :

    @AlexHpoin said in I have some problems about config file:

    It shows please create a config file.

    Are you sure it’s named config.js ?

    I just copied what you posted and it fired right up.



  • @AlexHpoin Have u saved the config file in the right place?



  • Hello,

    You must to have config.js in this path : cd /MagicMirror/config!
    If you use Putty
    0_1502824906699_config.PNG
    If you use WinSCP
    0_1502825013524_WinSCP.PNG

    If it does not work. I advise you to copy the original config.js.
