config error somewhere, need help



  • I ran it through a syntax validator and everything checks out with that, but I’m still getting the Please create a config file error. I was modifying the MMM-iFrame module and hit a wrong key and the config closed. after bringing it back open i saved and reloaded and now nothing. I cant figure it out. Thanks for any help. Here’s my config file:

    var config = {
            port: 8080,
            ipWhitelist: ["127.0.0.1", "::ffff:127.0.0.1", "::1"], // 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 :

  • @TaylorTech22 do you have the following line at the bottom?

    /*************** DO NOT EDIT THE LINE BELOW ***************/
    if (typeof module !== "undefined") {module.exports = config;}
    
    

    also is your config file named correctly



  • @strawberry-3.141 yes i do i just didnt include in the copy-paste



  • @strawberry-3.141 config/config. js is what I enter



  • @TaylorTech22 Did you to remove the modules one by one to see which one is going wrong ?



  • My suggestion would be start over… use the standard config and add one thing at a time…see if it works then add the next until you get to what’s not working…



  • @TaylorTech22 said in config error somewhere, need help:

    @strawberry-3.141 config/config. js is what I enter

    What do you mean?



  • another thing I could spot from viewing your config is that the timezone for the clock module should go into a config: {}, but this will not help you out with the black screen.


  • Module Developer

    Somebody should make EASY configuration system, or… all module developers should provide DEFAULT ACTIVE SAMPLE CONFIGURATION.
    Or, at least, neater JSlint parser should be supported.



  • @Sean all you mentioned exists 😉
