Can not get to Octoprint after reboot


Hey...I have setup Octoprint on a Raspberry PI 3 ran the configuration and can get on to Octoprint using I go through the configuration and everything seems fine. I go to Tools and Shutdown. The next time I login, it tells me to check the log or restart the service. (btw the IP is the same) There is nothing in the log, and when I start the service I get the same messages when I try to login through the browser (Safari). The only way to get back on is to rebuild and start over. How can I get around this? (oh and I'm using the current build 0.15)


I believe that this might be a network issue. I have something comparable, and can only get round this by disconnection from my Wlan and reconnecting with my notebook.
Then everything works fine.
Without the disconnect/connect i can surf the internet, but am not able to reach all IPs on my local network. I am using a fixed ip on my pi and on my notebook.

Perhaps you can check this.


It sounds like you're on an OSX-based computer, given that Safari is involved. Usually the Raspi broadcasts its hostname via the Bonjour service, so a Mac should be able to reach it by name in a case like this. Try to ping octopi.local and/or ping from your Mac—normally, both these should work for you.

If the ping doesn't work then treat this like a network-related problem. Assuming that you are using a dynamically-issued DHCP from your router, the router should set things up with the correct IP address as well as DNS server(s) and netmask.

Can you ssh into the Raspi? ssh pi@octopi.local or ssh pi@ From there, the log would be here: ~/.octoprint/logs/octoprint.log. You could see if octoprint has automatically loaded after a reboot with this: ps -ax|grep octoprint. The first line below indicates that it has loaded upon startup.

  485 ?        Sl   133:45 /home/pi/oprint/bin/python2 /home/pi/oprint/bin/octoprint serve --host= --port=5000
20325 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep --color=auto octoprint


Hi...Thanks, but this is what I get:

Pinging both octopi.local and work fine!

The log file has a tone of stuff in it, so not sure what I'm looking for

When I do the ps -ax|grep octoprint I get what you have above.

Very stumped, please help :frowning_face:


BTW...After it gives an IP address the following comes up:

ok Stopped HAProxy load balancer.

For your previous post, then it looks like OctoPrint is running and it's bound to an IPv4 address and further, your computer is able to do name resolution to lookup octopi.local and turn it into as is expected. Now, it's entirely possible that I just helped you since ping is known to push what it finds into your arp cache, making this easier. You might try again to see if you can reach http://octopi.local from Safari.

The log you're showing me here in the next post looks like the output of /var/boot.log and looks normal to me. In case you're interested, another way to verify whether or not OctoPrint is running would be to do this command and just look for the daemon: cat /var/boot.log:

You may now open a web browser on your local network and 
navigate to any of the following addresses to access 


https is also available, with a self-signed certificate.

That login prompt is to be expected if it's on the same computer. What you'd do next would be to use your Mac's Safari and go to http://octopi.local.


HAProxy is what listens on port 80 and sits in front of OctoPrint. If that doesn't start properly that explains why you can't connect to it.

Check /var/log/haproxy.log, it might contain information as to why the service is not starting up anymore.
