could you try using the test config? Looks like there is an error when it tries to bind on localhost.

Try: hipache -c config_test.json

(specify the correct location for the config_test.json file)


Thank you! I have tried hipache -c config_test.json, but show the same error. Do you kown what is the port that worker will take?


Unfortunately, this is probably an issue related to the cluster module.

Here are a few suggestions:

  • try to run on a different port;
  • make sure that nothing else is listening on port 80 (check with netstat -ntlp);
  • run hipache with strace (e.g. strace -o log -f hipache -c config_test.json) and put the log in a gist.

Can you try that and let us know the results?

Thank you!


Check if IPV6 is enabled.

I had the same issue and my problem was resolved by uninstalling node-hipache via apt-get, and installing it via npm.


@siminm were you using tsuru package?
