I installed aria2 and in the web interface after entering my global pwd in the rpc secret token (and leaving the rpc user & pwd empty) - i get:
Oh Snap! Could not connect to the aria2 RPC server. Will retry in 10 secs. You might want to check the connection settings by going to Settings > Connection Settings
I read an old post here about this, but its for stretch and we are on buster now.
I did tried the suggested steps:
root@DietPi:~# cat /etc/systemd/system/aria2.service
root@DietPi:~# grep Global_Password /DietPi/dietpi.txt
grep: /DietPi/dietpi.txt: No such file or directory
from android app - also error.
what can I do now?
I recomment to revert all changes you have done and have a look to this forum post https://dietpi.com/forum/t/aria2/4941/2 as well as our online docs https://dietpi.com/docs/software/bittorrent/#aria2
btw /DietPi/ did not exist anymore. All DietPi scripts have been moved to /boot/
I havent made any changes.
since i just installed dietpi and its the first try to run it.
the pwd in /mnt/dietpi_userdata/aria2/aria2.conf is the same exact what im typing inside the web interface.
also after i refresh the page - the pwd is not stored there.
and grep Global_Password /boot/dietpi.txt gives nothing in return.
After first boot password has been removed from /boot/dietpi.txt and it doesn’t matter. You would need to use the password from aria2 configuration file. Did you pushed the save button on the bottom of the configuration page? I did a test an all working fine for me.
offcourse i did.
and i checked the pwd in the file and it is the same what i type in the field.
Do you use any special characters in the password?
no. only numbers (6 nums)
maybe RPC server is not running. Let’s check it
ss -tulpn | grep LISTEN
journalctl -u aria2.service
sorry for the delay in reply.
i just re-installed aria and its working great now.
thanks for the help.
