Multichain Explorer - [ErrNo98]

+4 votes

Hi All

I've just gotten started on Multichain and got stuck on the Multichain Explorer part. I've been able to follow all the steps on Github up to the point of launching the explorer. The last working step was:

  1. python -m Mce.abe --config chain1.conf --commit-bytes 100000 --no-serve

When running the following step:

  1. python -m Mce.abe --config chain1.conf

I run into the following error:


I've tried to kill the processes listening to the port which is used for RPC API requests, however this killed the port which the other nodes require for a connection and therefore killed the blockchain.

has anybody encountered this problem and know of a possible solution?

Kind regards

It would appear that the problem is the port you are trying to use for the MultiChain Explorer to listen in for incoming HTTP requests. That same port is being used by something else, perhaps the MultiChain node's JSON API. So you should just configure a different port number in the Explorer's configuration file.

Thank you very much, this did the trick.
