Blank screen - noob needs support

  • Hi, I just finished my MM project and it works fine for 5 days. This morning I got a blank screen with following notification:

    Starting MagicMirror: v2.1.3
    Loading config ...

    Whoops! There was an uncaught exception...

      errno: 'EADDRINUSE',
      syscall: 'listen',
      address: '',
      port: 8080 }

    Any ideas?
    Thx and Regards, Chris

  • Problem solved - I installed an other SD Card with the backup of MM and everything is working fine again… but I do not know what happened before. So I will have a backup in the desk if something will appear in near future 😉

    @chris1971 something was already using port 8080, probably the previous instance of magic mirror was not shut down properly and still occupying this port, or a different programm was using it

  • I have powered the PI and monitor via a wlan socket which can be switched on/off - could this cause the problem?
