Start FAQ

When starting bots-webserver the window disappears after a few seconds?
Start the bots-webserver from the command line; you will be able to see what goes wrong. (Windows, python 2.7) go to command line and: c:\python27\python c:\python27\Scripts\ For the most common cause for the problem see the next question.
Bots-webserver gives error: IOError: Port 8080 not free on ‘x.x.x.x’ (or similar).
Another program already uses this ‘port’.
Adapt the port bots uses: in configuration file bots/config/bots.ini look for ‘port’.
Change port to eg 8090
Start bots-webserver again.
In your browser you will have to indicate another port eg: http://localhost:8090
Can I run multiple instances of bots-engine in parallel?
No, this is not possible.
Instead bots >= 3.0 has better control of running the engine: jobqueue server.
