    "A critical error loading Sia has occured: Siad unexpectedly exited. Error log: Sia Daemon v1.3.7

    listen tcp 127.0.0.1:9980: bind: address already in use; are you running another instance of siad?"



  • @invisiblefriend I think you're correct that there must be another process running. Did you reboot, did you search your process explorer for more siad processes?



  • yes and thank you

    i have rebooted -- and have tried deleting all all and re-installing same issue

    any way to hard stop or find any background running siad ? i cannot find no matter what ?

    any advice especially b4 fork -- im concerned

    namaste

    Restart your computer and relaunch Sia-UI. It won't autostart on boot there would not be a second instances running in the background

    Find me on the Official Sia Discord.

  • i was hoping to get this taken care of b4 the fork but no luck :(

    but thx 4 amazing kind support my friends

    ive tried it all -- after days so many deletes and tries in terminal -- and it almost worked synched but password locked me out ... i really want new wallets to add SIA into especially since i missed the fork ,,,

    it finally fully synchronized !! but will not accept my passwordd :) -- ( i think i messed up the seed maybe .. )

    but i cannot get rid of the wallet --i would rather not have to resych

    any way i can just make new wallet ?

    1. Go to the about tab in Sia-UI, click Show Sia Data
    2. Close Sia-UI completely.
    3. Navigate into the sia data folder until you see a folder named wallet
    4. Delete that folder and relaunch Sia-UI

    Find me on the Official Sia Discord.
