Piaware not running


pi@piaware:~$ piaware-status

PiAware master process (piaware) is not running.
PiAware ADS-B client (faup1090) is not running.
PiAware mlat client (fa-mlat-client) is not running.
Local ADS-B receiver (dump1090-fa) is running with pid 1010.

dump1090-fa (pid 1010) is listening for connections on port 30005.
faup1090 is NOT connected to the ADS-B receiver.
piaware is NOT connected to FlightAware.

I tried a few reboots and restarts but without success
Feeder Type: PiAware (SD Card) 3.1.0

Thanks for looking


As note
Feeding on fr24 plane spoter is running and fine. Only piaw are feeding is affected


I have an identical problem


What does /var/log/piaware.log say?

Regarding your question, sorry, i’m just starting my way in linux so… show me the way :slight_smile:

But I guess that something else is getting exclusivity on the receiver

Maybe I will reinstall the entire image from ground.


Run ‘less /var/log/piaware.log’
’>’ to go to the end of the file
’q’ to exit

Or try ‘sudo journalctl -u piaware’


You have an incorrect username/password configured:

Nov 16 11:10:46 grung fa_adept_server[24151]:  login as user EmilK was unsuccessful: incorrect username or password, exit in 60 seconds

I’d recommend clearing that config entirely, piaware will log in by MAC.


Thank you but how do I clear that
I know that I have done something wrong he he but how U reverse it?
Thanks again for your support



clear which config, how? linux newbie


$ piaware-config flightaware-user ""
$ piaware-config flightaware-password ""
$ sudo systemctl restart piaware



Working now. Thanks.


Hurray back online
Thanks a lot

@ obj
You saved me… I really appreciate your help, great to see an active community.
I hope that in one day I will be capable to help other too.

Take care


I’m having the same problem but the listed steps did not work for me
$ /var/log/piaware.log
bash: .var.log.piaware.log: Permission denied


sudo less /var/log/piaware.log


piaware version 3.1.0 is running
login failed: Status 'error': reason 'creation of new feeder sites requires a newer piaware client that supports feeder ID's please update and try again'

Do i have an out of date version?


I got it working now. Thank you.
