So your suggestion is to upgrade Node-Red version?
Running as a service
The install script for the Pi also sets it up to run as a service. This means it can run in the background and be enabled to automatically start on boot.
The following commands are provided to work with the service:
node-red-start- this starts the Node-RED service and displays its log output. Pressing
Ctrl-Cor closing the window does not stop the service; it keeps running in the background
node-red-stop- this stops the Node-RED service
node-red-restart- this stops and restarts the Node-RED service
node-red-log- this displays the log output of the service
You can also start the Node-RED service on the Raspberry Pi OS Desktop by selecting the
Menu -> Programming -> Node-REDmenu option.
Thank you for the suggestions, but the problem is that I am getting: “node-red-stop is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.”
Currently Node-Red is running as service
What type of machine and OS is this running on?
Searching for "node-red-stop is not recognized as an internal or external command` returns several solutions for windows based installations.
Yes I tried this search, but I am running Node-Red on Ubuntu virtual machine (digital ocean)
Have you tried issuing these as
Yes, outputs “command not found”
What responses do you get to…
Also, what happens if you navigate to the folder where Node-Red is installed then issue the
Node version is 8.10
npm version is 3.5.2
I successfully run this command: node-red --settings and I am attaching screenshot:
I assume that Node-Red is installed in ./node-red folder - this folder contains node_modules folder. settings.js and package.json so I think NR is installed there. node-red-stop outputs command not found (with and without sudo)
I’d recommend that you upgrade to the latest stable release of Node-Red, which is currently 2.0.6
This requires Node.js 12.17.x.
The “error port in use” message in your screenshot is because Node-Red was already running.
Thank you for your suggestion. I am trying to upgrade it using the upgrade script from here:
Unfortunately now I cant start node-red. It outputs the following error:
Okay, I assume that’s because you aren’t running it on a Raspberry Pi, but I can’t really be sure.
What version of Node.js and NPM are installed now?
Thank you very much. I upgraded to Node.js 12 by adding --node12 to the upgrade script and now everything works. Blynk is connected too. Thank you very much for your time!
